Master vendors

In today’s competitive employment market, which is beset with skills shortages, there’s immense pressure on those people responsible for hiring and managing locum staff. Using a number of different recruitment suppliers – all with varying processes and charge rates - can sometimes add to this pressure and it’s easy for the situation to become time consuming and unwieldy.

Channelling all your locum requirements through one main supplier – your ‘master vendor’ - can give rise to a number of benefits including:

  • Cost reductions
  • Greater visibility on expenditure
  • Accurate management information
  • More efficient workforce planning
  • Streamlined back office processes

We’ve been providing master vendor solutions to the health and social care market for over 15 years and have established a strong reputation as market leaders. As master vendor, we’ll be your single point of contact, responsible for all your locum activity, including the management and performance of your other staffing suppliers. We’ll guarantee fill rates, drive down your costs and mitigate clinical risk through our quality guarantees.
