Thinking of working in the UK?
ALPHA IMPACT is happy to assist you finding Locum work in the UK
Are you considering working as a temporary locum in the UK?

We will help you to establish a successful career

To work as a temporary locum is the UK can be easy and straight forward for British citizens and UK residents. However, this can be a daunting task for someone from our neighbouring EU countries or from overseas.

Our human resources managers at ALPHA IMPACT are trying to make this process as easy as possible. Here are some points you may want to consider before you arrive on our shores.
Get your papers organized:

In order to become a fully registered professional you need to submit proof of ALL of your professional qualifications along with proof of your identity to the relevant governing professional body (e.g. the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Brittan etc) prior to your official registration date. This requires that you either submit the original documents or an authenticated copy of your diploma or degree. Any document presented must be in English or accompanied by a certified English translation. Your registration documents need to be accompanied by a letter of good professional standing from your home country.

Get your locum job organized:
Our locum agents at ALPHA IMPACT will try our utmost to line up you your first position prior to your arrival. This will help you immensely with your cash flow any with your transport and accommodation requirements. Remember that London is currently rated as the MOST EXPENSIVE City in Europe. It therefore pays to have your first locum position lined up to earn pounds for your living expenses.

Get your accommodation and transport sorted:
ALPHA IMAPCT will assist you with your accommodation and transport requirements. Most employers are still willing to provide you short term accommodation and often provide you with a car. However, all these benefits are inseparably linked to your employment and will be taken off you if the employment comes to an end.

Do not worry about taxes as long as you pay them in time:
ALPHA IMPACT can put you in touch with an experienced accountant that can provide you with the best advice tailored to your needs. Remember that you always can become a short term employee and go under the PAYE scheme. Keep in mind that you are better off in the long run if you start up your own Limited Company!

Have a backup plan ready:
Remember that even the best planning efforts can go “belly up”, in particular if your registration fails. We do need proof that your registration has been successful and we also conduct follow up checks with the relevant Royal College / Royal Society to verify your registration status.

Stay in contact:
We are here to help you to get started. Please feel free to contact us with any of your concerns. We have helped our locums many times before and we are happy to assist you as well!
