International solutions

Sourcing the best talent from around the world

Why international recruitment?

In the UK and Ireland, both the public and private healthcare sectors are experiencing staffing shortages across all disciplines. There are various different reasons for these shortages, including:

  • An ageing population that is living longer, placing further demands on health services
  • Healthcare professionals leaving the service due to increased stress, brought about by staff shortages
  • An increasing percentage of healthcare professionals approaching retirement or taking early retirement

To bolster their clinical workforce, many healthcare organisations are now looking overseas. Both the UK and Irish Governments have placed nurses and other healthcare professions on the Shortage Occupations List. This means that there is no limit imposed on the volume of candidates qualifying for a Skilled Worker Visa.

Your World provides a bespoke end-to-end International Recruitment Service, to help you increase your clinical workforce and offset any staffing shortages that you are experiencing.

We needed an agency that could adapt to the regional pressures in the nursing market, whilst bringing positive experience of sustainable recruitment processes. YWRG have, from day one, taken a collaborative approach to the project, and have supported us every step of the way.

We have a healthy pipeline of nurses, very positive feedback from those who have joined our teams, and excellent feedback from the teams that these nurses have joined.
