The need for MEDICAL and DENTAL Professionals – in the UK

 There are many opportunities for people with medical/dental  skills from South Africa - in the UK.

The UK Home Office has announced that it will no longer include doctors and nurses in the Tier 2 Visa cap. This means there are no longer restrictions on the numbers who are brought into the UK. 

We do not charge you, as an applicant, anything neither do we reveal your email, contact details  or personal information to anybody!

When we find a position for you, we will ask your permission to submit you as an applicant. See our privacy notice - click here

 

 DOCTORS AND NURSES NOW EXCLUDED FROM TIER 2 VISA CAP

On 15 June 2018, the UK Government has announced that there will be NO restrictions on the number of doctors and nurses that can be employed via the Tier 2 skilled worker visa. More international doctors and nurses can thus be recruited.

 

The NHS cares for around 66 milion people of all ages. Annually the British Government allocates billions of pounds to the ‘health’ of their people. The country requires skills in ALL disciplines of medicine.

 PLEASE REMEMBER - THIS IS A LIST OF  MEDICAL SKILLS REQUIRED IN THE UK – We will identify suitable positions and communicate them to you.

 If you have a preference as to WHERE in the UK you’d like to work – please let us know on the Jobs Board.

 We will make connection with you and, together, we will discover your intent and circumstances.  From there it’s a ‘team’ effort – between ourselves looking for the right employer and the immigration consultants.

 We can compare our processes to South African Rugby players who look to play in the UK. They have a professional agent in both South Africa and the UK working with them talking to prospective employers – professional rugby clubs – about opportunities for their specialists skills

 It’s a process which we have to manage carefully – it’s not like just ‘changing jobs’. That’s where we come in.

As part of any recruitment process, 1st Connect UK collects and processes personal data relating to job applicants. The organisation is committed to being transparent about how it collects and uses that data and to meeting its data protection obligations. What information do we collect? 1st Connect UK collects a range of information about you.

This includes:

 your name, address and contact details, including email address and telephone number;

 details of your qualifications, skills, experience and employment history;

 information about your current level of remuneration, including benefit entitlements;

 whether or not you have a disability for which the organisation needs to make reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process; and

 information about your entitlement to work in the UK. 1st Connect UK may collect this information in a variety of ways.

For example, data might be contained in application forms, CVs or resumes, obtained from your passport or other identity documents, or collected through interviews or other forms of assessment. We may also collect personal data about you from third parties, such as references supplied by former employers. We will seek information from third parties only once a job offer to you has been made and will inform you that we are doing so. Data will be stored in a range of different places, including on your application record, in HR management systems and on other IT systems (including email). Why does 1st Connect UK process personal data? We need to process data to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you. We may also need to process your data to enter into a contract with you. In some cases, we need to process data to ensure that we are complying with its legal obligations. For example, it is mandatory to check a successful applicant's eligibility to work in the UK before employment starts. 1st Connect UK has a legitimate interest in processing personal data during the recruitment process and for keeping records of the process. Processing data from job applicants allows us to manage the recruitment process, assess and confirm a candidate's suitability for employment and decide to whom to offer a job. We may also need to process data from job applicants to respond to and defend against legal claims. 1st Connect UK may process special categories of data, such as information about ethnic origin, sexual orientation or religion or belief, to monitor recruitment statistics. We may also collect information about whether or not applicants are disabled to make reasonable adjustments for candidates who have a disability. We process such information to carry out its obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment. If your application is unsuccessful, 1st Connect UK may keep your personal data on file in case there are future employment opportunities for which you may be suited. We will ask for your consent before it keeps your data for this purpose and you are free to withdraw your consent at any time.

Who has access to data?
Your information may be shared internally for the purposes of the recruitment exercise. This includes members of the HR and recruitment team, interviewers involved in the recruitment process, managers in the business area with a vacancy and IT staff if access to the data is necessary for the performance of their roles.

We will not share your data with third parties, unless your application for employment is successful and we make you an offer of employment. We will then share your data with former employers to obtain references for you, employment background check providers to obtain necessary background checks.


How does 1st Connect UK protect data?
We take the security of your data seriously. We have internal policies and controls in place to ensure that your data is not lost, accidentally destroyed, misused or disclosed, and is not accessed except by our employees in the proper performance of their duties.
For how long does 1st Connect UK keep data?
If your application for employment is unsuccessful, the organisation will hold your data on file for 6 (six) months after the end of the relevant recruitment process. If you agree to allow us to keep your personal data on file, we will hold your data on file for a further 6 (six) months for consideration for future employment opportunities. At the end of that period, or once you withdraw your consent, your data is deleted or destroyed. You will be asked when you submit your CV whether you give us consent to hold your details for the full 12 months in order to be considered for other positions or not.
If your application for employment is successful, personal data gathered during the recruitment process will be transferred to your Human Resources file (electronic and paper based) and retained during your  employment.
The periods for which your data will be held will be provided to you in a new privacy notice.
