How long have you been working in recruitment and what brought you to GP Jobs?

I’ve been working in the recruitment industry for almost 4 years now, but what brought me to GP Jobs was the opportunity to help establish more innovative recruitment solutions for a new sector.  I work with our GP Online recruitment clients to ensure they are getting the most from their advertising budgets in a particularly challenging environment.

How has recruitment changed for GPs over the last couple of years

By way of recruiting for talent, it’s as challenging as ever. Often the number of vacancies considerably outweigh the number of GPs that are actively seeking new roles. For those recruiting it has meant that they need to be more savvy in how they target potential candidates. This has also coincided with the shift in the way that people digest news and information with increasing emphasis being put upon digital media.

What are the benefits of using GP jobs to help you find a job?

We have the widest range of jobs available online, our site has been designed to ensure you find the right job as quickly and as easily as possible.

"With hundreds of roles at home and abroad GP Jobs gives you the best chance of finding the next move that’s right for you".

What can recruiters/practitioners do to ensure their job reaches the right candidates?

Consider who the right candidates are and how likely they are to not only look for jobs but also keep up to date with the latest news and information.

Talk to your account manager about the best way to attract the right candidate. They will be able to help you target potential candidates at the points where they most regularlyengage with our brand to dramatically increase your chances of finding the right candidate.

What is the best piece of career advice you have ever been given?



Think about your career as a series of experiences and continue to grow from the challenges that you’ve faced and overcome. That’s the best piece of advice I’ve received - it’s true and universally applicable, sound advice for GPs and recruiters alike.
