HETT: With your experience, what are some of the biggest challenges that you have identified when working closely with your NHS/Care partners?

Goodman Masson: The biggest challenge we face when supporting our NHS / Care partners is sourcing candidates that match the niche skills sets required by organisations. Candidates often need experience within the NHS and an understanding of clinical systems and healthcare data, meaning it is difficult to pull talent from other sectors.

Other factors that have contributed to the challenges of staffing shortages for our partners include;

  • Covid – the pandemic has impacted all sectors however staff shortages due to illness have been particularly high within NHS / Care organisations
  • Brexit – this has contributed to shortage of candidates due to us having less access to talent from the EU
To support our NHS and Care partners, we have dedicated Resourcer’s who focus purely on the sourcing of talent, and maintaining relationships to ensure we have a readily available talent pool for our partners.
