Milton Keynes-based medical recruiters National Locums have been officially recognised as one of the best companies to work for in the UK.

The Best Companies research agency, which supplies data to the Sunday Times for its annual Best Companies to Work For survey, has awarded National Locums a star rating, acknowledging that “it shows that you care about your employees – their wellbeing as well as their careers – and that you see workplace engagement as a vital part of success”.

The award is recognition for National Locums’ consistent focus on employee wellbeing, which is at the core of the family-owned company’s business philosophy.

The company recently moved to new offices at Clarendon House, Wymbush, which feature an airy, open-plan sales floor, fully equipped fitness suite, games room, café – and even a pub!

In addition to providing top-class working conditions, National Locums has created industry-leading remuneration and rewards package, acknowledging every team member’s contribution to the business. This can ultimately lead to membership of the Elite Club, when top performers are taken on an all-expenses-paid holiday of a lifetime – this year it’s to the West Indies.

Says National Locums director David Cook:

We are absolutely delighted to receive this reward, as we have always been focussed on looking after our people, and making the working environment as good as it possibly can be.

We’re now launching a major recruitment drive to bring our staffing up to 130, quadrupling the team over the past five years.
