Three Career Defining Roles in Health

29 Jul 2020

Last month, I received a most heart-warming text from a candidate.

The text said, “Just wanted to say thank you. I am really enjoying my new life. Wouldn’t be here if you hadn’t made the call, out of the blue” Accepting a new role, in a new location can be a ‘sliding doors moment’, your life as you know it will never be the same. Some approach the opportunity as a new adventure, others see it as a necessary step  in their career journey, whilst for some it is a way to achieve a more balanced work/home lifestyle. Whatever the reason, my team and I appreciate such decisions are not taken lightly and we are here to support you in whatever way we can.

Speaking of sliding doors moments…I have some roles for you to consider.
