Are you thinking of moving to the UK? We have a proven track record of supporting HCPC-registered healthcare professionals to take the leap.

We only have opportunities for HCPC professionals and cannot offer Care Assistants or Support Workers sponsorship opportunities

Testimonial from our most recent Psychologist about our service

“Job hunting can be a daunting process, from looking for the right  role and organisation to applications, interviews, and rejections. At some point, a lack of motivation set’s in during the process.

The Shire team has been excellent with me on the journey to getting me my first role as an overseas qualified practitioner psychologist in UK. They started with me before I got my HCPC PIN, giving me guidance, and all the necessary resources to get through and get that role. They were in touch till my HCPC was ready, and then came Jessica who took over and ensured I got the right role.

If you are internationally qualified or UK qualified and looking for a role, I recommend that you leave it with the Shire team, they will find a role suitable for you.”

We have ample opportunities for Psychologists across the UK with many of our clients offering full sponsorship for international applicants. In addition, you will benefit from our support, guidance, and advice on the relocation process.

We provide highly skilled professionals to many of the UK’s leading healthcare organisations and our specialist team of consultants will be on hand to facilitate each step of the process.

The UK employs more international job seekers than any other country in the world and that’s no coincidence. With a diverse culture and population, UK laws and regulations place a strong emphasis on equality. Whether you are looking for a vibrant city experience, coastal or rural setting, we are confident we will have the right permanent position for you.

We appreciate moving to another country may be daunting but with our support, we will offer you all the reassurance needed to make the transition as smooth as possible.

    I've been working with Tom Lane from Shire and he's been an absolutely huge contributing factor to my overall experience throughout my application journey, he explains everything efficiently and has been extremely polite, professional and kept me at ease as I am quite a nervous person, he's been extremely accommodating and honestly even just sounds like he cares and is genuine in his responses, which are impeccable, you're never waiting long before he's checking back in.

    Tom has been amazing from start to finish helping me find my new job. Tom was brilliant with contacting me during convenient times for myself due to my current working hours. Tom kept me updated throughout the whole process and made me feel at ease prior to interviews by offering advice and useful information. Would highly recommend 🙂

    Really great service. As a user looking for a specific role within the children’s care sector, I would wholeheartedly recommend Shire Health. Tom was informative, supportive and always at hand to answer any questions or concerns I had. I am very experienced at interviews and he offered his support and guidance without teaching me to suck eggs! He has matched me perfectly and as someone who has also had to employ and recruit in the past, he has took the hard work out of the job, which I’m sure the employer will be grateful for - as it’s always an expensive, timeous and sometimes arduous business recruiting staff. Thanks Tom and the team x

    My experience with Shire, especially Tom, has been amazing. Cannot fault him at all. Very professional and helpful, from applying right through to helping once accepting the job. Tom has kept me up to date and even helped me with finding out the answers to questions I should have asked at interview but forgot!Really friendly and makes you feel valued. Highly highly recommend. If I could score more than 5 stars I would do!

    Shire Healthcare Services was very instrumental in helping me get the job I really wanted from the initial contact to the service through the interview process up until my start date and even beyond. They've given me a really strong base of support and Lena in particular was my consultant who helped me through every single process that I needed to undertake whilst also reviewing and updating me on every aspect of my job application. It's been a really wonderful experience for me and I look forward to maintaining a very good relationship moving forward.
