Frequently Asked Questions
1. I am not qualified yet, I have not completed my training; can I register for work with you now?
To work with us as a locum doctor or AHP Allied Healthcare Professional, you must have a current, valid qualification and professional body registration for the country in which you want to work.
2. I live in one country now, but want to work in another country where you are based. Can I register for work there?
We can only register you for work in the country where you are a citizen or you have a valid work permit. We are unable to obtain work permits for foreign nationals.
3. Why do I need to attend a face-to-face meeting with an A24 consultant?
All applicants are expected to attend a session with our in-house recruitment consultant, to scan and collect their original employment eligibility documents which forms part of the mandatory requirements set out by UKBA Home Office. This is supplementary to a Skype interview.
4. How do I register with you - as I cannot find details of any of your branches?
A24 Group has moved away from branch locations, preferring to have our medical consultants based throughout the UK. Our medical consultants are car based and therefore have the complete flexibility to meet with you in your local area or workplace. All of our Roving Consultants are equipped with document scanners and other equipment to enable them to fully assist you to register.
