Health and social care employers in the UK and Ireland have a new recruitment partner with the launch of HealthSectorTalent, a dedicated talent marketing company working exclusively with employers to recruit healthcare professionals directly, bypassing the need to use recruitment agencies.
For more than a decade, the team behind HealthSectorTalent helped more than half a million people to start a new life abroad as one of the largest international recruitment marketing companies in the world.
The team managed large-scale international recruitment and skilled migrant attraction campaigns for construction, engineering, automotive, hospitality, technology and healthcare talent in 26 cities and 8 countries on behalf of governments, employers and employer representative bodies including Calgary Economic Development.
The Federal, Provincial and State Governments of Australia and Canada were also included as clients and the team managed Australia Needs Skills on behalf of Australia’s Department of Immigration and Citizenship (now the Department of Immigration and Border Protection).
In 2012, the team also worked alongside Health Workforce Australia (HWA) a Commonwealth statutory authority set up by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) to create a nationally, co-ordinated international attraction strategy for healthcare professionals to work in rural and regional Australia.
In addition to creating recruitment brands, managing advertising campaigns and events for Clients, the Company owned the WorkingAbroad Expo, the Emigrate Show, Newcomers Canada and Newcomers Australia.
The scale and popularity of the Working Abroad Expo in Poland, Singapore, Malaysia, Ireland, the UK and the UAE, attracted global media interest including TIME Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, the Globe and Mail, The Times Newspaper, BBC News, Germany’s ZDF, SKY News and Ireland’s RTE Television.
In 2015, following a surge in global demand for nurses and physicians from Clients, the team pivoted the business in 2016 to focus exclusively on the healthcare market including events, advertising and support services for employers recruiting directly.
