International Recruitment

At Medical Wing Locums, our International Team is dedicated to sourcing only the best quality nurses from around the world. We fully manage the entire process for our clients and candidates alike, from sourcing candidates in countries of interest and in country in-person interviews, to candidate relocation and post placement support once relocated and settled in the UK. We are currently recruiting nurses for immediate placement.

In UK, International Nurses play a vital role in the NHS and other health care facilities and Medical Wing Locums International division is here to support each step of the way.

Medical Wing Locums has vast experience placing nurses across the UK in both NHS and Private Healthcare settings. As a nurse owned and administered business, and a business that has various nationality nurses on the books working locally in UK, we understand the different cultures, qualifications and credentials of many countries thus giving us a competitive edge when it in turn comes to recruiting internationally for our UK client hospitals and healthcare facilities.

Relocating to a new country is definitely exciting but can be challenging and complicated! At Medical Wing Locums our International division has extensive experience helping nurses move to the UK. With our support package we will hold your hand as you take the leap to relocate, including helping you find accommodation here in UK and continue holding your hand for as long as you need us after settling in UK. We will even personally collect you from the airport!!

Nurses interested in working in the UK are required to demonstrate their English language proficiency first by passing either the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) or the OET (Occupational English Test). We know that the NMC English language requirements can be challenging, so at Medical Wing Locums we provide guidance and resources for the IELTS and OET requirements.

The NMC also requires all applicants to meet certain minimum requirements before applying to join the nursing register in the UK. For the full list of requirements, please read Registering as a nurse or midwife in the UK.

For more information on the English language requirements, please visit NMC website.

Upon contacting us or completing our International application form below, our dedicated team of nurse advisors will engage with you to discuss your skills, personal preferences and requirements. We also provide you with a list of hospitals and locations we are sourcing nurses for, so you can make a choice of where in the UK you would like to work.

Medical Wing Locums will discuss and provide you with detailed step-by-step instructions navigating you through the entire process and necessary documentation you will need to successfully relocate. This includes the visa application process in obtaining your Certificate of Sponsorship (work permit) and the types of documents required.

Beyond all the above we will book your plane tickets, arrange your accommodation, come to pick you up and welcome you at the airport upon your arrival and help you settle in to your new home.
