Rajeev, Nurse I am very pleased today to write at least some words for Abigael. I have been consistently very impressed by her communication skills, approach to all my queries (just to name a few though there was a lot of them) since the first day I made contact for a possible job placement in UK. During the whole process she has helped me with all the resources that I expected from her and at the same time she was very friendly, professional, compassionate and always ready to help in the quickest way possible. I always felt relieved while speaking to her because you can feel how hard really she is trying for you to fulfil your dreams. I wish her all the candidates get someone like Abigael to ease their way towards success. She found the ideal employer for me and where I can feel just like home Thank you so much Abigael.
Raj Doshi, Community Nurse, Leicestershire I joined HCL almost 2 years ago. I get regular shifts and good backing from my consultant. She supports me well and we regularly communicate on any issues that need prompt attention. I am content with the flexibility offered as it suits my lifestyle with my family. HCL has looked after me well and I enjoy being an agency nurse.
I am very happy I passed the job interview with ABM University Health Board. A heartfelt thanks to HCL for this great opportunity. Thank you for your strong commitment in supporting, motivating and preparing me for the interview, and for all your advice and patience.
I have worked for HCL for nearly a year and a half now. I decided to give up my permanent job and work for an agency as I am a single mum and need flexibility. The HCL team is so friendly and approachable. They listen to what I want to do, not just book me in for shifts. They wait for me to ask what I want, not just pressure me into shifts for the sake of it. It makes me feel like part of a team and I have someone to talk to.
I am very pleased with my decision to join HCL Nursing. I am really enjoying it and I am proud to tell people I work with HCL.
Charmaine Shovelton, Nurse I am thankful to HCL for arranging my interview at Wexham Park Hospital. A big thank you to my HCL consultant who helped me with the interview preparation. Thank you very much!
Lyzeria Pauig and Jose Raymundo Hello! Everyone. I Lyzeria Marie S. Pauig and Jose Paolo J. Raymundo are Overseas Filipino Nurses who came here in UK 6 months ago. Today, March 20, 2018 is exactly our 6th-month stay here in the UK. We are currently working as a Band 5 Staff Nurse in Luton and Dunstable Hospital NHS Trust here in Luton, United Kingdom. Going here in the UK as a nurse is difficult. It’s like a roller coaster ride. First, we compiled and submitted so many documents to our Agency and Nursing Midwifery Council. Second, we have undergone different hospital interviews via actual appearance and Skype. Third, we had to take so many examinations such as IELTS, CBT, and OSCE; and those exams were arduous to pass. Plus, the waiting of examination results, the amount of money and time we spent just to go here in the UK and be a nurse is really not an easy one, but HCL PERMANENT is like an angel in disguise for us. It is our recruitment agency based in London, which has an office in the Phillipines that made our journey smooth and facile in fulfilling our dream to become a nurse here in the UK. They are not just an Agency, they are like a family. HCL never left us from the beginning up to now. They well guided us throughout our application. They really made time to talk to us, call us, and well-explained every detail that we have to know and do. The ones who handled our applications, Ms Esperanza Majarucon, Ms Diana Darko, Ms Elizabeth Finedon, and Ms Abigael Thomas are all nice, kind, smart, and have a good heart. They really took care of us. We are so blessed and forever be grateful to them and to the whole HCL Team for all that they’ve done for us. HCL will guide you very well, they will take care of you, they will protect you, and they will make everything easier for you, they went far beyond their line of work to help us get here in UK and reached our goal, because with HCL you can always assure that you are in good hands. A recruitment agency with a heart.
Linda James, Community Nurse, London When I first began talking to HCL my confidence levels were very low. I had lost my job as a community nurse and even though I wanted to return to the NHS I did not feel I had enough skills to return. I was very hesitant. My HCL consultant was very encouraging, patient and helpful. He sent over materials for me to read over and prepare, including helpful tips on the right questions to ask at the interview. I followed his advice and was successful in securing a nursing role at the Royal Brompton. Getting this job is a big deal for me and I know it wouldn\'t have happened without my HCL consultant. In all our communication he was always courteous and polite and always gave me feedback every step of the way.
Judy Applewhaite, Staff Nurse I have been recruited by HCL to work at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital. My HCL consultant has been very professional and clearly has a passion for her job. She was very helpful during my relocation process and was available via email and WhatsApp to provide timely answers to my many questions. When I arrived in the UK I had no problems meeting with my employers as my consultant had made all the necessary arrangements. She did an excellent job which made my transition easy. I have recommended her to several of my colleagues in Barbados who want to come and work in the UK and I know she will do an excellent job when they are ready to relocate.
Daniele, Nurse It’s been a pleasure to have this opportunity and everything was perfect. At every hour of the day I could always count on my recruiter’s help and I was supported in every single step of the process, which have made it a lot easier. I advice everybody to take this opportunity as well!! Thank you very much for all your supporting!
Christine Camasura, Nurse In all honesty, HCL Workforce Solutions gave the clear path and direction of my UK Nursing future. The time HCL was referred to me by a friend, I was from another recruitment agency that charged me big time, but did not really help me much. HCL was so quick to look up for an employer for me and schedule me for the interview. They even had a pre-interview briefing to guide and help me pass. Ms Gwyneth Barrett was so accommodating and always in touch. I did not have to pay for a single pound too. Thank you HCL and thank you Ms Gwyneth.
Chiedza Murandu, Mental Health Nurse, Leicestershire I have worked with HCL for over two years now. Choosing to work with them is undoubtedly one of my best career choices to date. They are so accommodating - I choose the days or nights I want to work, as well as the location. This is so liberating, especially if you have other commitments to take care of. Also, their pay rates are competitive. When I decided to go back to university for my post-graduate studies I looked at several agencies and choosing HCL was as easy as ABC. From the point of inquiring to registration, everyone at HCL was more than willing to help. They made the entire process easy for me. My consultant is superb - she listens to my concerns, my preferences and no requests are too big for her to assist with. She doesn\'t only call to give me possible shifts, but also just to find out how I am doing. This for me is the icing on the cake because it makes the whole relationship between HCL and I human. As a result, I\'ve never stopped telling everyone I work with how satisfied and happy I am working with HCL. They are simply the best out there!
Charmaine Shovelton, Nurse The process of moving from Australia to the UK and navigating the NMC and sponsorship issues is a complicated process. The journey through this process was made so easy and stress-free thanks to my HCL consultant. She has shown professionalism, integrity and honesty. She has been a friendly voice on the end of the phone at any time, day or night, and has ensured I have been kept up-to-date every step of the way. Her dedication is inspiring and her ethics second to none. I have no hesitation in recommending HCL to anyone looking to make the move to the UK as an overseas nurse.
