NurseIreland prides itself on offering our clients a premium cost-effective recruitment service, be it for locum, contract or permanent recruitment solutions.

What makes us different?

NurseIreland fundamentally believe that our effectiveness can only be measured by the retention rates and long service of the candidates we present to our clients. Therefore, understanding in detail the specific needs of each of our clients is core to our own sustainability and success.  In doing so, we invest a great deal of time in communicating those needs and expectations to our candidates.  In addition, we recognise that screening our candidates thoroughly before presenting them to an employer, further enhances our ability to match the right candidate with the right employer.

In this very competitive environment finding the right candidate is crucial. Our network of in-country partners allows us to actively recruit the best talent internationally, effectively and efficiently.  Furthermore we pride ourselves in offering a true ‘360’ approach to recruitment, offering short, medium and longer term solutions, recruiting talent from within Ireland and Northern Ireland as well as further a afield from the UK, Europe, Africa and Asia.

Our Compliance and Delivery Consultants have ample expertise in ensuring the candidate journey is a successful one, advising international candidates on NMBI and NMC applications, IELTS and OET preparation and examinations, CBT, Visa application and processing, Medicals and Travel arrangements.  In addition, we offer full support in meeting all the compliance requirements of our respective clients, ensuring all documents and reference checks are completed in an appropriate and timely manner.

When we work with a Client, a member of our senior management team takes full ownership and responsibility for delivering the agreed outcomes of the contract in place.  No matter how much we have grown over the years, this remains a fundamental cornerstone to how we work and it gives our clients confidence that their priorities are our priorities. Furthermore, our Clients are kept fully informed of all candidate progress, so that planning for new arrivals, be it for inductions, accommodation or training can be made much easier.

One happy nurse!!!

My NURSEIRELAND Experience! It was  in February 17, 2015 when my sister and I were hired by the Philippine Agency and NURSEIRELAND in Cebu, Philippines. They hired me eventhough I still had to work on my IELTS. NURSEIRELAND didn’t give up on me and they even waited 15 months for me to hit the target scores in IELTS. During the interview, Paolo asked me ” Why Ireland? ” . I paused for a moment before I answered him because I really didn’t have much idea about Ireland. However, I just told him that ” I want to go to Dublin where the movie LEAP YEAR was shot.Also,  UK, USA, New Zealand and Australia are too mainstream. I want to be the first among my colleagues to work in Ireland.” Apparently, I am the second nurse from our hospital in Cebu to work in Dublin and the first nurse happens to be my close friend (haha). I am definitely flying to Dublin today ( December 16,2016) and it is indeed LEAP YEAR. I don’t think it is COINCIDENCE but instead it is DESTINY. It only took me 6 months to complete the process from NMBI packet application until VISA approval. I will forever be thankful to NURSEIRELAND for not closing the doors for me to be in Dublin and most importantly for keeping their promise  that I will be working with my sister. Cherry Ann...
