Partnering with an Allied Health Recruitment Firm

Many travel nurse firms offer allied health job opportunities concerned with identifying, evaluating, and preventing disorders and diseases. These jobs also address rehabilitation, health systems management, and dietary supervision.

The Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions estimates that 60 percent of all healthcare workers are allied healthcare providers. That statistic represents 5 million medical workers servicing more than 80 different professions in the United States.

Why You Should Consider an Allied Health Travel Contract

A few reasons include flexibility, competitive salaries, generous benefits, and expanding your work opportunities with more certifications and specialties.

When you’re ready to explore travel allied healthcare assignments, here are some tips for choosing a firm to help you find those jobs. Start by reading reviews and asking colleagues about the travel allied health company’s reputation. Work specifically with a recruitment firm specializing in the healthcare industry. Having a trusted firm known as a healthcare industry expert will ensure you get the best fit for your skills and background.

Finding an Allied Health Recruiter

Finding an allied health recruiter can sometimes be a challenge. Once you pinpoint a firm, here are some questions to ask to learn more about their allied staffing jobs:

  • How many positions are there in my desired location and for my specialty?
  • Do you have direct contracts?
  • What kind of benefits do you offer?
  • Will I be with one recruiter throughout the process?
  • How many travel allied health workers do you currently have on assignment?
  • Do you offer allied health contracts for travel buddies?

Before signing up with an allied health recruiter, ensure your expectations align with the company’s. Furthermore, see if the firm understands the travel allied health industry instead of approaching these positions as any other open slot. Finally, you should trust your instincts when deciding whether to go with a new travel allied health recruiter—if you feel something’s not quite right, hold off signing with that firm.
