Private Industry Locums
Private Industry Locums
Fresh Recruitment also offers you the opportunity to work in the private health care industry of the UK. You can use our search facility to locate locum vacancies according to your preferences. Although most doctors are employed in the NHS, many doctors prefer to work in the private health industry. Private industry locums have some advantages over their NHS locum colleagues including:
Since the private health care normally works with more lenient and larger budgets than facilities in the NHS, private industry locums often have more access to further training and education courses. The employers also promote further education and skills development. Private industry locums need to arrange with their employers before making plans for courses outside their normal field of interest and work hours.
The private care employers provide high quality meals to their staff, which are often better than the meals provided in NHS hospitals.
Although many of the best doctors are employed in the NHS, private industry locums often get the opportunity to work with some of the best doctors in the world. The experience and exposure to new procedures can be a bonus for career development.
Although the above privileges may not seem important to someone that enjoys the structure and security of the NHS, doctors who want the few extras enjoy working as private industry locums.
Application process for private industry locums
