Ethical Recruiters List
This list is sorted by recruitment organisation, agency or collaboration name, professionals supplied, and region.
Each profession and organisation recruits is listed as a separate entry.
Recruitment organisations, agencies or collaborations that have successfully applied to the Ethical Recruiters List will receive a letter confirming this and will be added to the list in the next monthly update.
Use the search function to find a recruitment organisation, agency, collaboration, or profession, whether an agency is on an approved framework - Health Trust Europe (HTE) or NHS Workforce Alliance (NHS WA) - or click on the table headers to sort by column A-Z.
The Ethical Recruiters List has been updated as of 16 May 2023.
We have removed 239 organisations from the ethical recruiters list this week, as they have chosen themselves to come off the list or they have been removed following the outcome of an independent process under the Code of Practice. Please remember to check the Code list regularly to ensure your suppliers are still on there.
We would like to remind all employers to check the ethical recruiters list every time you work with a recruitment organisation to make sure they remain on the list.
These recruitment organisations, agencies or collaborations operate in accordance with the Department of Health and Social Care revised Code of Practice (published 2 August 2022) for the international recruitment of health and social care professionals.
Health and social care employing organisations (including the NHS and private providers of health and social care services) are urged to only use recruitment organisations, agencies or collaborations which appear on this list, although inclusion on the list does not imply that they belong to a group that are either preferred suppliers or recommended by NHS Employers or the Department of Health and Social Care.
Once an agency has successfully applied to the Code, applications can then be made to an approved framework. NHS organisations are strongly recommended to engage with an approved framework to contract any requirements for the international recruitment of healthcare professionals. Each framework agreement will have its own unique terms, specifications, commercial structure and added value benefits, so please engage with the relevant parties to ensure that you get the support you need to support your overseas recruitment and successful outcomes.
Please note: The NHS Employers organisation name and logo are protected and recruitment organisations, agencies, and collaborations are not permitted to use it on any of their materials.
