Cromwell Medical Staffing is a leading healthcare agency dedicated to our candidates and clients across the UK.
Cromwell International recruit international nurses for permanent positions within the NHS in the UK. Permanent employees work directly for the employer on a contractual basis meaning they are paid directly by the employer. There is no pre-determined end date to their contract.
We recruit Band 5 Registered Nurses, Midwives, ITU and HDU Nurses, Accident & Emergency Nurses, Mental Health Nurses, Children’s Nurses, and Carers.
We also recruit Allied Health Professionals, Radiographers, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Paediatrists and Biomedical Scientists.
International candidates can only work in the UK if they have a certificate of sponsorship which is paid directly by the trust.
Permanent means they already have right to work in the UK and can work freely without the requirement of a VISA or sponsorship.
Being permanent usually comes with a huge range of benefits, especially when working within the NHS.
You will have a guaranteed salary, job security and you will receive paid holiday that can range from 20 to 25 days, plus bank holidays.
Another major benefit of working permanently in the NHS is the NHS pension scheme.
Most employers will also offer permanent staff continued professional development and training which you have to source yourself as a temporary worker.
Most employers whether NHS or Private healthcare organisations will reimburse candidates for the expenses occurred registering with the NMC and the relation costs. Most relocation packages include:
After a successful interview and an agreed start date the employer will issue a certificate of sponsorship. The nurse is required to have the COS number when making their VISA application. The type of VISA required for a nursing position in the UK is the Health and Care Worker VISA.
We have several roles available for international nurses across the UK.
The recruitment process for international candidates takes approximately 12 weeks from CV submission to landing. This includes all pre-employment checks including references, police checks, application forms etc and time processing the certificate of sponsorship and VISA requirements.
The recruitment process for permanent candidates takes 4-8 weeks as this is usually dependent on notice periods and employment checks.
In the UK, recruitment from overseas is governed by the UK Code of Practice for international recruitment. The aim of the Code of Practice is to promote high standards of practice in international recruitment and employment of healthcare professionals and we only recruit based on this ethical practice.
Due to Cromwell Medical's dedication to supporting the code of conduct for international recruitment, we are forbidden from actively recruiting from any countries on the safeguarding list, due code of conduct set by the World Health Organisation.
