Mental health trusts
Providers of care
This vision has been supported by a set of values that drives everything we do
Hunter are by far the leading firm in executive resourcing in today’s NHS. They seem to be the only firm that genuinely grasps what good looks like and install the right processes around candidate diligence and previous track record. I personally buy into their values of building long-lasting relationships, with the client and candidate being at the forefront of their priorities
Hunter are refreshingly different in the NHS recruitment space.
They are responsive to feedback, deliver to tight timescales and provide great-quality candidates, ensuring an overall outstanding customer experience
"Hunter Healthcare, and Rhiannon in particular, were extremely professional and efficient when we as an NHS trust had to commission a search to generate a list of candidates to allow the TDA to appoint a Chair to our trust. In what is a highly challenging situation, with many conflicting pressures, I was impressed as to how Rhiannon not only generated a healthy long list of credible candidates (when most trusts in a similar situation were struggling to achieve this) but how she kept myself and the trust as fully involved as possible given the restrictions. I felt she included the trust throughout the process and treated us as an equal partner. She provided the Trust Development Authority with a credible and diverse shortlist to make their appointment. I have used Hunter Healthcare subsequently for another hard-to-recruit managerial appointment based on this experience."
Our niched, knowledge-based team focuses on one thing: delivering management talent to the healthcare sector. Our handpicked team has been selected on strict criteria of demonstrable success in their chosen fields, market knowledge, networks and the ability to add significant value. We're not just another consultancy firm, interim provider or executive recruiter. We offer something much more specific: a complete skill mix based on recruiting excellence and healthcare sector knowledge.
The Foundation supports and raises funds for a range of good causes and is run by Hunter’s staff with the support of our clients, candidates, interims and suppliers. The Foundation raises money through a selection of sponsored charitable activities or events. Hunter organise a selection of events throughout the year. Staff, clients, candidates, interims and suppliers are also encouraged and supported to get involved in their own events that raise funds for the Foundation’s charities.Find Out More
