Some people think that recruiting the right person for a job I pretty easy but it isn’t. With so many different specialist skills out there, it can sometimes be very difficult to find the correct person with the academic qualifications but also the experience to fulfil what you are looking for. When it comes to finding the correct medical staff it becomes even more challenging. If you have a think of how many specialist fields there are in the medical industry which include doctors, nurses, dentists, surgeons and consultants there is a full list of specific “trades”. If you are looking to recruit a medical professional then there are several ways in which this could be done. We have pulled together some below for you to consider.
Use a Recruitment Agency
There are several recruitment agencies out there that actually specialise in the medical profession and would have a catalogue of different people waiting to start a job. The physician recruiter firms interview, vet and then maintain all the records for the individuals and then it is almost like a catalogue for you to choose the right person for you. They will have also completed many things such as security checks taking a lot of the hassle away from you. Some recruitment firms will operate differently where some do the hard work up front to find potential candidates for you to then employ in your firm however others will allow you to hire the person via their firm so therefore they do not become an employee of yours and you just pay for the hours etc the person works. There are positive and benefits for both of these options which includes massive differences in the costs for these therefore be sure to understand your end goal and how to get there.
If you are looking for person or number of people, you may wish to consider advertising for the role. This is no particularly expensive and you can then choose the advertising route that you think would get you the best results. Newspaper or magazine adverts are a pretty common way to do this. In terms of magazine, specific ones for the medical profession would be even better as people in this industry maybe looking for jobs will read it and you who are looking to recruit a person will be advertising. Adverts could also be placed on avenues such as social media or around the internet.
If you are looking to recruit a number of people into your organisation then you may wish to choose to take up a stall at a jobs fare. Here you will be able to display your organisation and talk to people who are potentially interested. If a job fare is planned out correctly and well-advertised then normally you will find that the number of people in attendance is pretty high. If you are going to display at a jobs fare it may also be an idea to ensure that you display this in advance on social media or other places to encourage people to attend.
