Endorse, Reducing International Recruitment Fees by 50%

Endorse CEO and Founder Matthew Richards has built an ethical recruitment model that gets the balance 100% right. Cost-effective quality healthcare recruitment that protects international talent, with no fees for employers until they are safely on the ground.

Endorse is changing the recruitment landscape with a new community of international Agents spanning 12 key recruitment locations. Bonded together by ethics and the Endorse Code of Practice this ‘One Stop’ supplier universe competes far beyond the current narrow group of agents based in the UK.

Employers simply connect with the vetted and approved Agent ecosystem via www.endorsejobs.com to receive the fastest, most accurate campaign proposals at the best cost. Alternatively Endorse can take on all the legwork with their unique ‘One Contract’ option.

More Ethics and More Economies

'Endorse have been pivotal in offering us a bespoke service which has introduced us to alternative legitimate nursing agencies from overseas. Matthew’s continued support as a conduit between ourselves and the agency has enabled our Trust to manage overseas recruitment not only in a more cost-effective way, but ensures the quality and recruitment experience of every nurse remains the focal point.'

Julie Chapman, Head of Resourcing Cambridge University Hospital, NHS


How to win in our global landscape

In the UK alone there are over 51,000 nursing vacancies with a worldwide shortfall in excess of 9 million. With such fierce competition for healthcare workers it was more essential than ever to create a winning global ecosystem.

The UK’s recruitment of overseas nurses has shown mixed results. UK based suppliers have narrowed the access needed to qualified skilled nursing talent while driving up recruitment fees.

Endorse counters these problems by opening up the international recruitment market to an optimal number of reputable and ethical Agents across 12 key World Health Organisation approved territories. The agile highly responsive model allows all ethical agencies to compete openly and freely, while reducing employer recruitment fees by up to 50%.


‘Fairer, Safer and Simpler’ The Endorse International Recruitment Model

International healthcare recruitment had to become fairer, safer and simpler. It went against all business sense that some of the best agents across the world were struggling to respond to international employers due to unfamiliar processes and recruitment contracts.

‘The news of the UK opening up NHS recruitment for international Nurses was received with delight by Qualified Nursing Graduates of India. However we at Naipunnya International found it challenging to respond to the complex requirements of the NHS in a professional way.

It was a real breakthrough for us to get the support of Endorse, and in particular Matt. He expertly guided us through the polices and formalities of the NHS and together we have secured successful recruitment campaigns for the past 2 years.'

Tomi Joseph & Shyni Jose, Managing Directors, Naipunnya International, Kerala, India

Endorse CEO and founder Matt Richards is an executive nurse and skilled talent leader:

'I worked with Matthew during an NHS recruitment programme in the Philippines.  From start to finish Matthew was an absolute professional, supporting the team from both a personal and professional angle.  

Nothing was too much trouble, from ensuring that the recruitment team were fully briefed, to advising on the local customs and cultures, and assisting whenever there were difficult decisions to be made.

Matthew is efficient and highly organised, an approach that helped us successfully recruit over 50 Registered Nurses in one week.  Without Endorse this would not have been possible.  Paul Rafferty, Head of Nursing at the NHS'

'I trained at Glasgow University, Scotland and met Matthew as he was recruiting for King's College Hospital, London. Because of the talk Matthew gave at Glasgow University I decided to start my nursing career at King’s College.

I always felt Matthew cared and listened, knowing how daunting it can be as a newly qualified nurse in a different country.
Yet another beautiful quality about being a nurse is a passport to work anywhere and with Matthew’s help I worked with an Australian agency for four years. When deciding to come back to the UK I re-contacted Matthew for recruitment support and within weeks had an interview at Addenbrooke's, Cambridge University Hospital, where I am now currently working. Matthew made the whole process of finding a job so much easier for me whilst being overseas and went above and beyond to ensure I was looked after by the team at CUH.'
