I was referred to Maria by another colleague and she immediately gained my trust. She managed the GMC application process both in terms of helping me complete the GMC online application and gathering and translating the documents. After getting my GMC registration Maria explained the recruitment process in the NHS and we selected together the first job to apply to. Maria helped me write an excellent CV and NHS application form and I was selected for an interview even though we had only completed one application. She also advised me on how to develop the skills necessary for a consultant job abroad (such as leadership, audits, etc).
I have now planned my trip to the UK for the interview and Maria has provided me with a step-by-step plan on how to prepare for the interview (what documents to read, what I need to know regarding the NHS and where to find relevant information, as well as a list of hot topics). She has also conducted a one day interview training with me where we covered together the most important topics on the NHS and interview techniques. She has taught me how to ‘guess’ the interview questions from the job descriptions and given me models and simple structures to answer interview questions. I feel well prepared and confident for the interview. She also worked with a recruitment agency and has arranged a couple of meetings with recruitment agencies for me during my trip to the UK for the interview. I could not have done it without her help.
After the recent changes in the Greek National Health System I decided to search for a job in the NHS but I did not know where to start.
