Launch of new A1 Locums app for veterinary professionals

A1 App Launch
Our new app will speed recruiting process for locums

A1 Locums has released a new app to make the lives of busy veterinary professionals simpler, by enabling registered locums to get in touch easier at the swipe of a screen. By using the new app, they will be able to contact A1 Locums quickly to let them know their current availability, apply for a job on the go, or make contact via WhatsApp. The new A1 Locums app is now available for download.

Registered locums will be sent the link to download this free app straightaway, enabling them to be in touch immediately with the recruiters at A1 Locums. The candidates can be set up to receive only certain emails via push groups – relevant to the type of work they are looking for, areas or the companies they like to work with.

Managing Director Clare Alderton said “Owing to the nature of the locum placement process, speed is often of the essence when filling a position. In developing the app, we wanted a straightforward and uncomplicated platform to help make the lives of the veterinary professionals we deal with lot easier and save them time.”

If veterinary professionals are not registered with A1 Locums and are interested in the app, they can register here before downloading it.

For candidates already registered with A1 Locums, here are the links to download the app:

A1 Locums Graduate of the Year 2016

laura_hagstonWell done to Laura in achieving such excellent results and winning the A1 Locums award for 2016.

Laura graduated from Harper Adams University with a first class honours degree and is currently covering a locum maternity role Wicstun Veterinary group in Market Weighton, Yorkshire, which is a mixed practice. Her plan is to save up and eventually travel and work abroad, potentially in Australia. Laura would like to do some work with wild animals, or work on ‘neuter and release’ programme, whilst travelling. In her final year at Harpers, she was course rep, enjoying organizing events for special veterinary students.

Her main passion is nursing and she is now surgical nursing and she has commented that being scrubbed up is one of her favourite jobs as a veterinary nurse.

As a student Laura was a highly motivated and dedicated student, very popular with her peers and staff. Her dissertation was titled ‘Investigation into whether the provision of post-operative care information to clients at the time of patient admission benefits the patients aftercare’.
