The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has appointed Hays Healthcare, the leading recruiting expert, as its recruitment partner for all temporary staff. The five year contract means that Hays is now responsible for managing the placements of healthcare professionals across a number of departments, including the RAF. Expert consultants will interview prospective candidates to assess suitability, enabling temporary staff to be put into positions immediately when requested.

Simon Hudson, Director at Hays Healthcare, comments: “We are working with the MoD to provide temporary recruitment, which will ensure they have access to the best talent, that the temps have undergone vigorous checks and that it is carried out in the most cost effective manner. Our national and international network of offices provides us with knowledge of the local and global medical and clinical staffing provision. We understand the sector and the specialist roles and know how to identify the best people for the roles. The current job market for doctors and other healthcare professionals is stable as they all benefit from a more secure job environment due to prevailing shortages.”
