Working in our doctors division
When joining the Doctors division, you will experience a friendly, welcoming culture and it will feel like you’re joining a family. Many of our staff within the Doctors division have been with us for around 20 years, who are quite knowledgeable in the Healthcare sector and are always looking to share their expertise with the rest of the team.
Our teams within the Doctors division are mainly based in Skipton, Manchester, Glasgow, London and Dublin, however there’s also a UK team that operates out of India.
How we work
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all teams have moved to a hybrid working model where everyone mostly works from home, but will occasionally visit the office to build in-person team camaraderie. Teams based in the UK would also virtually collaborate with our MGG teams in Australia and New Zealand for referrals of doctors wanting to relocate to the UK.
Core hours within this Division are 9am – 5:30pm, Monday to Friday, however there’s also part-time work opportunities within the Out of Hours team who will work between 5:30pm – 11pm. Some teams require some flexibility in their hours and would adjust their core hours, especially those focused on international recruitment where they’re liaising with doctors in different time zones.
What our work environment is like
This division works within a fast-paced environment, as there’s generally a huge demand for doctors across the UK and Ireland, and most often there’s a shortage of available doctors. Our teams work hard to fill thousands of shift hours a day prioritising urgent bookings.
Because the Healthcare sector is quite a competitive market, negotiation, relationship building and communication skills are key when working with clients and candidates – especially when working with international doctors from different cultures and backgrounds. All team members are encouraged to keep up with any changes in the sector to always provide knowledgeable guidance to our stakeholders.
