NHS Recruitment

About us 

Source Recruit have been providing flexible recruitment solutions, business intelligence and information management specialists or outcome-based project teams to the NHS, healthcare and commercial markets for over 17 years – placing the highest quality people who consistently deliver key projects, achieve successful and safe outcomes and help to improve performance.

Our approach is simple – we match candidates proven delivery experience to the individual needs of our clients. We pride ourselves on our specialist knowledge and experience. We take the time to fully understand our client’s needs and objectives, only providing requirement-specific candidates to ensure outcomes are met and projects are delivered, each and every time.


Source Recruit’s unique Technical Assessment Platform (iTAP) not only gives an accurate and auditable account of the candidate’s technical ability, it greatly improves the shortlisting process as each candidate put forward will have proven their technical ability to do the job. A full report detailing the technical assessment will be provided supporting the shortlist recommendation, saving you time and is all part of the service. Through access to some of the most experienced developers in the industry, iTAP is constantly evolving and kept up-to-date with emerging and changing technologies.​

Our services for candidates

We place high calibre, specialist interims and niche contractors into senior (NHS Band 8A and above) roles.

All our candidates conduct an in-depth vetting process and we:

  •  conduct full candidate screening on their current and previous career history

  • regularly meet with candidates – via Skype calls and face to face meetings - to build and maintain a relationship

  • secure four verbal references from previous line managers

  • conduct in depth interview preparation for both telephone and/or face to face interviews

Project outcomes recruitment

In response to recent changes to IR35 legislation, we can provide an alternative way for your organisation to procure the skills, tools and people you need to improve your delivery capability and performance. Our services can be procured as a managed service with fixed term contracts through Digital Outcomes and Specialists 4 framework. Our managed service can help your organisation:


  • Avoid delayed or non-delivery of critical projects and programmes by keeping interims working where they’re most needed

  • Avoid a skills gap developing as interims and contractors with easily transferrable skills, or those not willing to accept full employment or PAYE taxation, simply move to the private sector

  • Avoid the limitations of NHS agency caps and issues around Agency Workers Regulations

  • Avoid the potential threat of legal challenges as all contractors have the legal right to challenge each public sector body as to why they were deemed inside IR35.
