Locum Vet Jobs: Sign up with us!Of course we want to encourage you to sign up with us!
However, there are a number of issues you may want to consider before you put out your C.V. with too many locum agencies:
Once you have completed your C.V you want to start circulating it to make yourself known on the market. Before you do so, be clear about your employment goals and start targeting your specific employment market.
Be specific about your employment goals, but also show some flexibility:
There is very little point submitting your C.V to agencies and employers if you just “seek employment” as a locum. This leaves a bad impression and only shows that you have given little thought about your current and future employment situation. You increase your chances of employment if you outline the time frame, area and side conditions (e.g. accommodation, transport, shift work) of your locum availability. Secondly show some flexibility towards a potential job vacancy, in particular with your starting and finishing dates.
Get to know the current job market:
We can give you a good overview of the current employment market and help you to develop realistic expectations. We will also help you to negotiate your locum wages and get you in touch with a tax accountant if needed.
Sign up with a locum recruitment agency of your choice.
There is very little point to “sign up” with all the locum agencies. It certainly DOES NOT increase your chances of finding suitable employment. Most of the agencies will simply submit your (modified) profile to ALL AVAILABLE POSITIONS together with ALL AVAILABLE CANDIDATES. The likelihood that you will come out on top of this selection process is fairly slim. You are much better off if you find a dedicated Locum Agent who knows you and your C.V and who can provide you backup if things do not turn out in your favour.
Back to Back cover:
Our Locums very often request the line up of the next locum position before their current employment ends. We at ALPHA IMPACT Locums are more than happy to provide you all available options to avoid larger gaps between locum placements.
Again, you are less likely to find the continuous locum work if you work with too many agencies. How do you expect someone to find you suitable locum placements if they have no control and overview over your next availability and your whereabouts?
What makes ALPHA IMPACT LOCUMS different from other locum recruitment agencies?
ALPHA IMPACT LOCUMS is working as an introduction agency for the locum. We work on a one-to-one basis with the locum and aim to provide you with continuous locum work or help you to find a permanent position. However, we do provide a selective service to our clients (employers) and will submit a very limited number of pre screened candidates to any locum vet vacancy.
