Additionally, we advertise all current locum requirements via our website and elsewhere.

How much does it cost to find work through Medicus?

A:Medicus provides all it's services to registered Job Seekers completely free of any charge. (it's illiegal in the UK to charge job seekers to find them work).  Medicus charges our clients a fee to provide them with locum or permanent staff, usually on a success only basis.

I'm looking for a locum vet for next week - can you help?

A:Medicus is very active in the UK locum marketplace.  At the start of January 2017, we have 557 active locum vets and 230 active locum nurses. Many of them are booked up solidly and have limited availability to do extra work.  It's very difficult for us to give any client an accurate answer as to whether we can provide a locum for specific dates until we have "worked" the requirement.  Generally, the more notice you give us, the more likely it is we can find someone for your practice.

If I hire someone through you and it doesn't work out - do I get my money back?

A:Medicus provides a rebate and replacement scheme for all clients.  This enables our clients to grow and develop their businesses with staff surety that if it doesn't work out with a particular recruit, we will put it right.  We work very closely with you to make sure that you are interviewing appropriately qualified and motivated candidates.

What are your fees?

A:Medicus usually charges success only fees dependent on the appointed candidate's starting salary. For locum placements, we charge a daily administration fee for each day the locum works at the client site. We'll make sure you are fully aware of our charges before we start working on your requirement.
