Whilst Athona started back in 2003 as a locum agency, we soon started to support the same clients in filling their permanent roles – with our allied health, doctors, mental health and nursing teams being some of the best within their industries.

We understand how important it is to be supported by a team of experts when you’re looking for a permanent role in the NHS or private sector. That’s why our permanent recruitment teams make it their mission to provide a professional and supportive service and ensure they are always supporting your career goals and aspirations.

We’re committed, passionate, empathetic, and believe in building genuine partnerships with our permanent candidates and understand our job doesn’t end when you’re placed into a permanent position. We keep in touch with you to ensure onboarding goes smoothly and you’re settling in well to the role.

Overseas Candidates

Our teams are also known for bringing overseas candidates to the UK for permanent positions with great success. We recruit healthcare professionals from across the globe, including Europe, Australia, India and Canada. Not only do we have extensive knowledge in permanent recruitment, we also understand the compliance and vetting procedures surrounding your relocation to the UK.

With extensive knowledge of the required English language tests, PLAB exams and obtaining your registration with the GMC, NMC or HCPC to name just a few, our dedicated permanent teams are on hand to offer support and guidance.

We also provide wide-ranging relocation support for healthcare professionals travelling from overseas, offering relocation packages that include flights and accommodation to help you settle in when you first land here in the UK.
