At NursingjobsUK we specialise in placing experienced nurses, senior healthcare assistants and health care assistants in private hospitals, nursing homes and care homes across the UK. With 20 years’ experience our team have specialist knowledge in matching the best nurses and carers according to your staffing requirements. We have the largest database of international candidates who are immediately available and keen to relocate to the UK.
With changes to the immigration rules, we can now recruit Senior Health Care Assistants from overseas (you can read more about this in our blog). We have a large database of both Registered Nurses and Senior Health Care Assistants waiting to be placed at care homes in the UK.
All of the candidates are immediately available and keen to relocate to the UK. Our experienced team can co-ordinate the recruitment process, taking care of all the necessary compliance enabling you to carry on with your own management tasks and responsibilities.
We supply trained international nurses registered in their country of origin.Most of our nurses pass the OSCE, receive their pin number and start working as a Band 5 Registered Nurse within 3 months of arrival.
Before they arrive in the UK our nurses will have passed their CBT with IELTS band 7 and will have commenced the OSCE Awareness programme, led by our NMC registered nurses.Having already assisted candidates begin the NMC registration process, once in the UK, we continue to support them in preparing for their OSCE exam.
Our candidate retention rate is high with nurses typically remaining with their employer for a minimum of 3 years, this means a more consistent provision of care for your residents and patients.
We provide trained healthcare assistants to help ease the ongoing pressure many health care organisations are facing. Most of our senior health care assistants are qualified nurses in their country of origin, whilst our health care assistants are Level 3 or above.
Our candidate pre-screening process ensures that we only register experienced quality health care professionals who have a background in health and social care. Our candidates are highly skilled and adaptable to life in the UK.
As with our nurses, our carer retention rate is high which allows employers to recruit long term quality care staff beneficial to the strength of their workforce.
Our pastoral care programme helps our nurses and carers settle into life in the UK and we organise regular social events giving them the opportunity to meet other internationally recruited healthcare professionals.

International recruitment has two major benefits: high retention and cost savings. Most international Nurses/Health Care Assistants have an average minimum retention of three years and your savings can be up to £117,000 per Nurse/ £58,560 per Health Care Assistants for the 3-year period, compared to employing Agency staff. In addition to cost savings, permanent staff may have a greater sense of responsibility and accountability than someone who is employed on a temporary basis.
Our Nurses and Health Care Assistants will be able to start work in the UK within 2-5 months of offer acceptance.
We have a robust ‘Recruitment and Selection’ process which complies with current legislation. As an NHS Framework approved agency for the recruitment of international nurses, we have demonstrable experience of recruiting international nurses from across the globe.
As part of the screening process, we will complete initial checks of CV’s and conduct HR and competency-based interviews. We complete compliance checks and scrutinise all original documentation supplied by a candidate and deem them authentic before shortlisting them for interview, seeking guidance from the NMC regarding the transferability of qualifications and experience and eligibility for international staff to practise in UK.
We offer candidates a full three day OSCE training course and mock test at our Stockport offices. This supports our nurses to pass their OSCE examination on their first attempt. Due to the support of our experienced nurse trainers, one of which is our Head of Recruitment who is a highly experienced RGN having worked in a variety of settings, we are proud to say we have 99% pass rate for our OSCE candidates at first attempt.
