Why work through an agency?
An agency can take a lot of the hard work away from trying to co-ordinate locum work with a number of different hospitals. They provide a central resource for large numbers of vacancies and that means it is much easier to match your skills with a suitable role in a convenient location.
Don’t agencies pay less as they take commission?
Rates are often higher through an agency. It also makes getting your payment easier as you have a central point you are paid from rather than chasing a number of different hospitals.
How often will I get paid?
We operate a daily payroll system and your pay will be in the bank 2 working days after we receive your authorised timesheet.
What is my employment status?
Your status when working for Medic International is that of a self-employed agency worker. Consultants may be employed or self employed according to their preference.
Doctors may choose to work through their own company, which is “gross” of tax, or through our PAYE system. There are a number of companies offering to support you if you have your own limited company. Our recruitment consultants can provide you with a list of companies we are aware of that will help you to set up your own company.
If the locum role becomes permanent, can I take it without going through interview?
Yes but you would need to contact us first as there may be an introduction fee payable by the client. So please let us know if this happens so we can come to a mutual agreement with them – this will not impact on you and will depend upon the contract we have with the client.
