Frequently asked questions




  • Once you have spoken to our International Recruitment team, we will create a tailored timeline dependent on your departure/arrival dates – including any travel plans you may have.

    As soon as you register, we will provide you with access to our application pack, which will detail everything you need to do. The majority can be completed prior to your departure – aside from Training and sighting your original documents. Before you arrive in the UK, we will ensure we have booked a meeting to complete any final compliance.

    We aim to have you placed into work as soon as it suits your availability.



  • We have specialist teams who recruit by geographical location, covering Nationwide across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We do also receive vacancies to work on the surrounding islands (e.g. Channel Islands, Isle of Wight and Isle of Man).

    Our client base includes the National Health Service (NHS), private organisations and local authorities (e.g. Schools and Councils).



  • As you will have a dedicated consultant, they will be your main point of contact to discuss work opportunities. They will support you to find the most suitable placement based on your skillset, availability and preferences (e.g. hours, location and pay).

    We list all our current vacancies right here on the website. If you would like any further information, please feel free to get in touch with one of our team.



  • We cover both Temporary and Permanent opportunities. The temporary roles can vary in duration; however, clients often commit to approx. 3 months at a time.

    We often find that our temporary workers are extended in their roles and have some examples where candidates have worked for a few years at the same organisation.

    Due to the high demand in vacancies we receive, we look to ensure people are working any time they are available. So even if your first role with us is short term, there will likely be other opportunities for you to move on to after.



  • If you have a UK recognised/equivalent qualification, then please get in touch with our dedicated team to discuss your options. They will be able to advise you of any further requirements (qualifications/experience/right to work etc.) which are needed to work in the UK.



  • This is entirely dependent on you and your plans. We can be flexible to work around you and your timescales and offer any relocation support and advice.
