Global healthcare talent marketing company Healthdaq® (formerly known as HealthSectorTalent®) has partnered with NHS Employers for their annual Strategic Workforce Forum in Birmingham next month.

The Strategic Workforce Forum is designed specifically for board-level workforce leaders in the NHS and is a two-day residential event taking place at the Belfry Hotel and Resort on 15-16 October 2019.

The event provides greater space for workforce leaders to think and explore key strategic workforce issues with key items on this year’s agenda including the NHS People Plan, the global labour market and developing OD capability.

Stephen McLarnon, Managing Director and Head of Global Markets with Healthdaq will present a session to NHS workforce leaders on the practical steps their organisations can take to improve their flow of candidate applications and recruit more doctors, nurses and allied health professionals directly.

In a session themed Clinicians On-Demand – How to Strategically Build a Talent Pool of Directly Sourced Healthcare Professionals, Stephen will examine the blockages and challenges to employers recruiting directly in local, national and international markets. The session will also include practical tips using real NHS examples, to help employers improve their flow of direct candidate applications.

Stephen will be accompanied by Brenda Carter, Head of Resourcing, University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, who will give a short presentation on how the Trust has successfully developed a recruitment pipeline of directly sourced nurses from overseas.
