*Meet the Team – Courtney* International Manager


My role at Jane Lewis International involves recruiting Healthcare professionals from overseas to work within NHS and private hospitals in the UK, providing urgently needed staff ensuring safe staffing levels and patient safety.

I work with my client Hospitals through a partnership approach and look to provide a holistic recruitment process for my overseas candidates, matching people perfectly with my clients not only from a professional point of view but to ensure they are going to receive the right support to help them adapt to a new culture and lifestyle.

I regularly travel overseas to the Philippines and India and have developed a strong relationship orientated recruitment process, from pre-screening, informing and advising on all the steps which can be quite daunting and financially concerning for my candidates. They are looking for a better life and future for their family, they are highly qualified with excellent communication skills however sadly they receive low pay and some live in poor conditions whilst giving of themselves selflessly to their patients.

I manage the candidate process from initial pre-screening interview right through to meeting them at the airport in the UK and accompanying them to their new place of work and accommodation. On occasion I also assist with shopping for food and essential home items and opening a UK bank account.

I am passionate about my role and driven by my candidates and clients, my satisfaction is knowing that I have helped to transform the lives of my candidates whilst knowing the considerable benefits to my client hospitals and patients. I feel lucky to be a part of their story and would say my own life has been transformed by my job.

If you have any questions please post them below or get in touch on international@janelewis.co.uk I work alongside my team of recruitment consultants and we are all equally committed to this amazing process.
