Remedium Newsflash: International Projects are Back!

Our ‘international projects’ proposition allows clients to visit overseas locations with Remedium to assess international clinicians directly at source, helping them to overcome the challenge of recruiting and retaining doctors, especially in shortage occupations.

Remedium’s international projects offering, part of our ‘Remedium Bespoke’ suite of services, is so beneficial to our NHS Trust clients that we were even honoured with an HSJ Partnership Award for this incredible service back in 2019.

However, in 2020, Covid-19 brought international travel to a complete standstill and face-to-face overseas recruitment trips had to be put on hold.

We are therefore extremely pleased to announce that international projects are back with full force for 2022. Remedium’s international projects team are currently in Mumbai, India with two leading NHS Trusts to support them with mass recruitment and with hiring for hard-to-fill specialties.

Overseas recruitment trip with Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is an NHS Acute Foundation Trust which operates 10 hospitals throughout Greater Manchester. It is the largest NHS Trust in the United Kingdom. Remedium’s international projects team are currently in India with a number of MFT representatives, including members of their medical staffing team and clinical leads from the relevant departments. Remedium are working exclusively with this NHS Trust on the project, which involves mass recruitment for ST1 and ST2 rotational posts across multiple specialties. We are pleased to announce that over 100 candidates have been lined up for interviews for roles at this prestigious organisation. We’re looking forward to sharing the results with you soon!

International Projects for Hard-to-Fill Specialties

The second NHS Trust who are currently with us in India are looking to fill a number of hard-to-fill vacancies, including locum and substantive consultant posts for shortage specialties.

By being in India to interview these candidates, this Trust are showing candidates their commitment to hiring international doctors and making them feel welcome. It’s also given them the opportunity to access these in-demand candidates before they reach the rest of the market. As a result of this trip, not only will this Trust interview over 20 candidates for roles in shortage specialties but their employer brand will also gain more international recognition and reach.

International Projects with an Optional SELR Route

When undertaking an international project with Remedium, many of our clients opt for our SELR exemption route. This means that clients can conduct a GMC approved English language competency assessment during the interview process, so that clinicians are exempt from taking IELTS or OET.

  • Fully meets GMC registration requirements
  • Clinicians are exempt from taking IELTS or OET
  • Access to a wider candidate pool for shortage occupations
  • An incentive for clinicians to favour your trust

Back in 2019, we won the HSJ Partnership Award with London North West Healthcare University Trust for the incredible results we achieved with an SELR exemption project. Watch our ‘three journeys’ below video to learn more about our relationship with this NHS Trust.
