Welcome to the doctors’ section of our website, which is designed to provide an overview of our services and the benefits we can bring to your working life and medical career.
Direct Medics is a leading medical recruitment specialist, supplying job opportunities exclusively to doctors across acute, primary care and mental-health positions in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The DM Way
Through the experience we have gained since our establishment in 2000, we have established "The DM Way", a set of principles serving as our minimum standard of care to our doctors. Through "The DM Way" our doctors are assured of a trustworthy and meaningful partnership with our company.
For our doctors, "The DM Way" means...
- Upon registration you are assigned to a Recruitment Consultant who will welcome you to our company and be your contact throughout your time with us;
- All vacancies matching your preferences will be communicated promptly to you;
- You will receive all the guidance you require before, during and after every placement;
- You will be paid promptly - submit your timesheet by 12 noon on Wednesday for payment that week; you will be encouraged to provide feedback on both the hospitals we supply to and on Direct Medics staff
Our primary aim is to support you through every step of your career progression with a comprehensive number of services from registration through to aftercare.
Pay & Benefits
We regularly benchmark our rates of pay, ensuring that Direct Medics remain competitive and attractive to the medical talent we recruit and retain. We are widely recognised by the doctors we serve as being the agency that not only pays well but pays promptly; with a weekly payroll our temporary doctors can wait as little as two working days for payment.
In addition, we offer a range of flexible remuneration methods, and referral to expert advice from our sister company Connect Accountancy Solutions, where our doctors receive advice on all aspects of their accounts, from statutory audits and support services to company start-up support and taxation planning packages. Connect will advise you on the method of payment for your work through Direct Medics which best suits your individual circumstances.
Securing employment using Direct Medics services is just the first step for many of our doctors. We have designed our aftercare programme to ensure that you are completely satisfied with every aspect of their placement. Your Recruitment Consultant will keep in regular contact throughout your placement and, as the placement comes to an end, they will work with you to gain meaningful feedback from both you and the employing organisation, aimed at enhancing your career prospects and further developing the information we provide to doctors considering work.
