Who are we?

NHS Professionals International is part of the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK. We currently partner with over 120 hospitals all around England, with a wide range of areas such as Acute, Mental Health and Community care. Our job is to help our hospitals with a whole range of workforce matters, so that they can focus on caring for patients.

Every year we recruit, and support thousands of candidates start their journey in relocating and becoming an Allied Health Professional (AHP), Registered Nurse or Midwife by offering permanent positions at some of the best acute hospitals and Mental Health services in the NHS across England.

About the role
