Choosing a physiotherapy recruitment agency

By Dan Allard

​You need to feel confident that the recruitment agency you choose to work with understands who you are and what you do.

As specialists in healthcare recruitment, we have years of experience in working with physiotherapists across the UK. We place them into suitable roles which match their skills and career ambitions. We get to know their strengths and understand their capabilities. This means that many of our physiotherapists choose us to support them throughout the entirety of their career.

So, here’s the questions you should be asking when choosing a physiotherapy recruitment agency.

Is your recruitment agency on the right frameworks?

Our frameworks, including HealthTrust Europe, Crown Commercial Service and Collaborative Procurement Partnership, allow us to place physiotherapists to NHS Trusts throughout the UK.

We are preferred health and social care resourcing partner to over 180 public sector organisations. You can choose between permanent employment or locum positions, full-time hours or part-time hours. You may be looking to live in a busy city, or in the quiet countryside. Whatever the case, we can find the right physiotherapy job for your lifestyle.

Does your recruitment agency have safe recruitment practices?

At Sanctuary, our success is built around our safe resourcing. Our compliance team is continually improving standards when it comes to secure recruitment practices. As well as meeting every one of our candidates face-to-face, we can verify your documents, organise registration certificates, collect references, and arrange any immunisations (if required). Our work behind the scenes means that you can focus on preparing for your first day.

What’s more, we are a DBS Umbrella body. This allows us to carry out online DBS checks in-house, ensuring that you can start working in your new role quicker than ever before.

Does your recruitment agency understand what you do?

We understand the important role that physiotherapists play within the NHS. We know what your career path should look like.

Our consultants specialise in specific professions meaning that they can understand what you do and how you work. They can advise you on how to move into new areas of practice or offer practical suggestions to help you develop your career.

Does your recruitment agency take a long-term view of your career?

Our ethos is more than about placing you in a single job. It’s about helping you to achieve your ambitions and supporting you from the moment you start your physiotherapy career through to the moment you choose to retire.

We take the time to offer support in every aspect of your career. Whether that’s helping you to prepare for your first job interview or sharing advice on how to use your CPD portfolio effectively.
