Meet Jo Hood - Our UK Medical Recruitment Lead

Meet Jo Hood - Our UK Medical Recruitment Lead

Following our announcement that we are expanding our UK recruitment with a team dedicated to helping you find your dream job a bit closer to home. We are delighted to introduce Jo Hood, who is heading up the UK recruitment team, and now we will hand over to her to tell you a little more about what she will be doing.

For every person who gets in touch with Head Medical looking to achieve their dream of working overseas, we speak to someone whose spirit of adventure is focused closer to home.

And it’s not surprising - whilst the lure of warmer climes can be appealing, the UK still offers a high standard of living, education, healthcare, social engagement and is ranked as one of the best among developed countries for quality of life (as you can read in this UN report).

I was lucky enough to grow up in Scotland and England and then lived in the USA for a number of years.  I have fond memories of charging around the English countryside on my horse as a teenager, I love the diversity of Scotland’s geography and while I enjoyed my time abroad I really missed milestone occasions with friends and family and after a while just some of the familiarity of the UK and was very happy when it came time to return home.

So I’m delighted to be leading our dedicated UK team and helping Doctors who are seeking work here in the UK.

The UK team will support hospital doctors and GP’s to find exciting new opportunities which reward you for your continued commitment to providing care in the UK. 

We also support those returning to the UK having worked abroad for a few years.

And for those looking to work in the UK for the first time. We can help you understand what it is like to live and work here, advise you on the steps you may need to take to qualify for working in the UK, and help you to secure that all important job.

So whatever your UK aspirations are, we can help. To find out more, register your details with us and sign up to be alerted about the growing number of UK vacancies we have coming online soon.
