9 reasons to consider locum work this August
01 August 2017
Flexibility and work / life balance: One of the biggest advantages of locum work for most locum doctors is the control over your working life. This can be especially useful if you’re just returning to work from maternity leave, or you enjoy dedicating your time to other interesting, non-clinical pursuits.
Try before you buy: Locum work can give you the chance to try out different specialties before you commit to a role full time. Use this opporunitity to experience as much as possible before deciding on one specialty.
Competitive pay rates: Locum doctors offer a specialist service and this should be reflected in the rates you receive for your work - especially if you’re willing to pick up extra shifts at the weekend or in the evenings.
More choice of work: Rather than joining a number of different banks and having to complete lengthy registration checks each time, with a locum agency you can gain access to all these jobs in one place, including overseas locations such as Jersey & Gibraltar.
Once dedicated point of contact: At Holt Doctors, you’ll be assigned a dedicated recruitment consultant with in-depth knowledge of your requirements and availability. No need to go searching for that perfect position, your recruitment consultant will pro-actively look for jobs that suit you and present you with opportunities at different Trusts/organisations. This also means you have one point of contact for all queries, from timesheets to help with booking accommodation.
24/7 support: Whatever your query, you’ll always be able to speak to someone with our 24/7 service.
Gain professional and clinical experience: Working in new departments and Trusts can provide invaluable experience of a different working environment, and give you the opportunity to build on your clinical experience.
Keep up-to-date with new legislation: It's our job to inform and advise where possible on new government legislation and framework directives, which means you can stay ahead of the curve with minimal effort.
Training and support: online training, revalidation and appraisal support, and money to pay for training courses for doctors who work regularly though us.
