How to get the best out of your locum agency
Having good communication with your recruiter is very important so that you don’t miss out on any opportunities. If you can’t answer your phone just call your recruiter back at a time that is suitable for you. Also, make sure that you are checking your emails regularly to keep on top of all jobs that are suitable for you, so when the right one does come through you will be the first to know.
Make sure you tell your recruiter your full availability so that your recruitment consultant can send you jobs that match your availability. This will reduce the number of jobs you get that don’t meet your criteria and will increase the jobs you get that when you are free to locum. Contact your agency to let them know of your schedule and working availability and any changes to your availability. Doing this will make sure that you are always given opportunities that you can genuinely take up and not waste your time.
Being reliable when it comes to you showing up at work on time and rarely cancelling shifts will mean that the trust is more likely to remember you as a favourable doctor. This means that when it comes to finding your next locum you will be more likely to get the job above another candidate applying for the same role as the trust knows that you are a dependable and trustworthy doctor.
Relationship with your Recruiter
Having a good relationship with your recruiter can be very important so they can guide you if you are unsure or having problems about anything you can contact them and they will assist you. Having a good relationship will help them get to know you better so that when it comes to finding jobs they can send you jobs that are suit your goals and aspirations. This would also help going forward allowing you to stay in contact so before your locum is even finished your recruiter can send you more job opportunities that help you achieve your goals and help you find work quicker.
