National Locums, the Milton Keynes-based medical recruitment consultancy, has been ratified as one of the most successful UK recruitment agencies, just six years after it was launched.

An industry-wide survey by Recruitment International magazine of recruitment companies, from national High Street generalist agencies through to independent companies recruiting in specialist sectors, has listed National Locums at number 415 in the Top 500.

This is an extraordinary achievement for National Locums, which was launched in 2009 as a home-based business, by David, Glenn and Jenny Cook.

Now located in prestige offices at Manor Farm Court, Old Wolverton, National Locums is on track for a turnover of more than £19 million in the current financial year with a staff of 36 supplying locum doctors, nurses and allied healthcare professionals to more than 200 NHS and independent hospitals throughout the UK.

Says National Locums managing director David Cook: “As one of the youngest medical recruitment consultancies, I’m absolutely delighted to have achieved a Top 500 listing, particularly as recruitment is one of the most crowded and competitive business sectors in the country.

“By adopting family values and the highest ethical standards we are set to more than double last year’s turnover, and you can only reach those milestones by delivering top quality medical professionals, often at the last minute, and always at a fair and competitive rate.”
