We recognise the challenges in recruiting healthcare professionals in the UK due to increasing pressure on healthcare services and the chronic shortage of nurses. Our permanent recruitment team successfully work with both NHS and private hospitals to meet their recruitment requirements and to source nurses for hard-to-fill positions.

We don’t limit our search for the best candidates to the UK, we also source nurses from the EU and across the world, including Europe, Australia and Canada. Our aim is to help our clients meet their growing staffing requirements and to reduce the unexpected spend resulting from understaffed wards. We’re proud comply with the NHS Employers’ Code of Conduct for international recruitment.

Our bespoke recruitment campaigns for our clients are designed to meet each individual clients’ needs and can include:

  • Skype interview sessions
  • Overseas visits
  • Targeted landing pages
  • Sponsored job posts
  • Search engine advertising
  • Social media advertising
  • Email campaigns

Our candidates always receive ongoing support from Athona which includes assisting with the GMC/NMC/HCPC registration process, IELTS or getting the correct visa for overseas candidates.

Our commitment to our candidates helps to create a more predictable and smooth relocation, meaning that you can be more efficient and accurately forward plan your staffing.
