The Nurses Now timeline has been a relatively short one, establishing in August 2014. We are part of the Agincare Group, a very successful and dynamic provider of residential, nursing, domiciliary and live in care. The driving force behind the agency is Martin Ross, an experienced senior health and social care manager with a track record for success and business development. He understands what it means to be a registered manager or business manager with vacant posts, a stretched workforce and growing agency bills.
We have rapidly evolved into a very successful recruiter of EU nurses for Care Homes across the UK. Our incentive to start the agency comes from the Groups' combined experiences of recruiting from the EU over the last few years, with its failures and the successes and the recognition of a formula for success. In the face of the current shortages in nurses across the healthcare sector, it made complete sense to take our success out to the wider Care Home market.
We work in partnership with agencies in Romania, Spain, Greece and Bulgaria to find great nurses. The key to a successful placement is transparency of terms and conditions, honest support and advice to candidates and employers alike and the recognition that EU nurses will require time and mentoring to adjust to living in the UK and learning clinical working practices here.
Candidates who are open to learning and are flexible, and employers who understand the realities of their new employees' training needs are much more likely to succeed and have a mutually beneficial professional relationship. Nurses Now has the knack of sourcing very professional, caring and hardworking nurses for employers in the UK – something which is very valuable in todays squeezed healthcare market.
