International Nurses’ Day 2020 - Shine a Light for our Nurses

Today, on International Nurses’ Day and the bicentenary of Florence Nightingale's birth, we salute all our Nurses who are working tirelessly every day to keep the nation safe, bravely working on the front line of the Covid-19 pandemic.

We also pay tribute to the thousands of former Nurses who have answered the call and selflessly returned to service to help the NHS confront Covid-19; the greatest healthcare challenge in the history of our National Health Service.

In a gesture reflecting the lamp carried by Florence Nightingale - the founder of modern nursing and a pioneer in infection control - Nursing leaders urge the public to ‘Shine a Light’ from a window tonight at 8.30pm to mark the 200th anniversary of her birth, International Nurses' Day and to recognise the heroic efforts of all our nursing professionals in tackling coronavirus.

Award winning Leaders in Development and Managerial and Executive Recruitment

Put simply, we help our clients to recruit the best possible people to lead, manage and direct their organisations. Since launching in 2005 we have become a market-leading consultancy focusing on both public and private sector Healthcare recruitment.

Over this time, operating out of our Manchester and London offices, we have developed a pool of high-calibre, highly experienced candidates - qualified to fill a wide range of permanent, interim and fixed-contract opportunities.

We won’t bore you here with the underlying principles which underpin our success – other than to say that we work as hard as we can to understand our clients’ and candidates’ needs – and then fulfil them. We strive to continually deliver a high quality, value for money service by developing long term, mutually beneficial relationships built on trust.

It’s an approach which has seen us voted Recruiter of the Year at the 2013 Health Investor Awards and top small to medium sized business in the 2013 Best Business Awards – and appear in the Virgin Fast Track top 100 companies.
