National Locums, the Milton Keynes-based medical recruitment company, is one of the fastest-growing recruitment agencies in Britain.

The company is listed at number 18 in the annual Fast 50 survey, published this week by ‘Recruiter’, the influential recruitment industry magazine.

With annual revenues of more than £13 million last year, National Locums – which was launched from the kitchen table of a house in Milton Keynes in 2009 –  has established itself as one  of the most trusted suppliers of locum doctors, nurses and allied healthcare specialists for the NHS and independent hospitals across the UK.

It is the first time that National Locums has appeared in the Fast 50 survey, and managing director David Cook comments: “We have grown quickly, because we have established relationships with hospitals based on absolute transparency and trust, and  the speed of response with which we supply them with top class medical professionals”.

It is the latest recognition of National Locums’ professional excellence. In the past 12 months the company has won the Midlands Family Business of the Year and Employer of the Year titles, as well as Business of the Year and Professional Practice titles in the Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards.

The company, which employs 63 people at its Manor Farm Court, Old Wolverton offices, continues to grow rapidly, and is on target for revenues of more than £19 million in the current financial year.
