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!
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.
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.
