Merco are growing…

Be part of the bigger picture – Be part of the growth – Be YOU!

Yes, we are growing and as such Merco are looking for ambitious, dynamic professionals to be part of our growing success! Whether we like it or not, so much of our time these days is spent reading and looking at the news and it is inevitable that each one of us have come to realise that the medical industry is staffed by some amazing people. Have you thought that you could be part of the team that makes a difference… a team that sources those amazing people? At Merco, we have been finding outstanding individuals for all areas of the medical profession for the last twenty years, and we are now looking for you to be part of the next generation of consultants, finding and eventually placing clinicians for the future of our medical industry.

Who we are…

Operating for 20 years, Merco Medical Staffing is a specialist medical recruitment agency based in South West London SW20. We are an SME, a key provider in the primary and private sector and need you to help us keep up with the demand for high calibre clinicians across the UK. We are open to widening our provision to new sectors within healthcare and are keen to meet client demand and new UK territories with your help.

Who are we looking for…

We are seeking a confident, enthusiastic team player to work alongside our senior consultants to source, register and qualify suitable candidates in a fast paced industry with the view to developing your career and managing your own portfolio of candidates and clients.

Do you believe to have the following qualities within yourself?

  • Passion and Tenacity - we love a bit of Oomph!
  • Resourceful, proactive and resilient - we are intuitive to changing needs and respond quickly with energy and ideas

A background in customer service roles are also desirable, but whatever your level of experience you bring we are excited to help you grow and progress with us.

The key responsibilities that will be in your very capable hands will include:

  • Actively search for candidates through networking and various recruiting channels
