Frequently Asked Questions - Employers

Why hire international health care workers?

There has been a significant rise in the demand for international healthcare workers as a result of an ageing population/ workforce and a need for higher quality of healthcare facilities provided by the UK.

Brexit has also caused an uncertain political situation leading to a drop of recruits from the EU by a third. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused enormous strain on the NHS and the frontline workers in this fight against coronavirus to keep England safe. Now, more than ever is there a need to get on board recruiting the best talent from all around the world. 

What are the benefits of hiring international healthcare workers?

Your agency expenses reduce dramatically once you choose to hire international healthcare workers on a permanent basis. It is also recorded that permanent staff can continue the care consistency which would otherwise be interrupted in the case of temporary workers.  

Statistically, Non EEA recruits tend to finish a minimum of 3 years contract. 

Will I need a sponsor license?

Yes, your company will need to have a sponsorship license in order to hire international healthcare workers.
