Hunter Healthcare's interim practice is split into three divisions:
In the provision of interim executives, we are passionate about operating an exclusive network of the best people, supported by a robust selection and due-diligence process.
Our approach is unique: rather than holding a database of 'all-comers' we hand-pick our own stable of interim executives. Being niched in healthcare we are able to invest the time to be proactive in building networks of proven management talent. All individuals represented by Hunter have been through a rigorous process of due diligence, confirming each individual's strengths, weaknesses and past performance.
For these reasons Hunter's interim management business has grown organically into the market leader in executive interim appointments across the NHS. Our success has come as a result of our stringent focus on candidate quality, due diligence and our desire to develop lasting relationships with both clients and candidates.
In summary, to us quality of candidates always beats volume of candidates. It sounds simple, but in a market saturated with transactional, database-driven recruitment firms, our type of service is a scarce commodity.
Our consultation process
We have always been explicit with our clients about the need to invest time in taking a specification brief, enabling us to identify the right candidates. We work by the principle that we will aim to consult rather than react.
A summary of our process is:
/ Consultation with Hunter relationship manager
/ Brief understood, played back to client and timescales for delivery agreed
/ Shortlist of relevant and referenced candidates. We have a rule that our shortlists are a maximum of three candidates strong, to ensure we make the process easier for the client
/ Engagement agreed
Hunter Healthcare's Technology and informatics practice specialises in providing interim management talent to NHS providers and commissioners
We understand the growing pressures on the NHS and how technological transformation through advanced data management and interoperability can enable some of the efficiencies that need to be achieved.
The scale of the projects and the speed at which they need to be delivered often requires highly specialised resources available at very short notice. As such, the NHS requires a responsive recruitment partner that can deploy resources quickly. Hunter has built an enviable track record of doing just this.
Our Technology and informatics practice is a clear break from the incumbent transactional model of IT recruitment, where the crowded landscape sacrifices the level of service in favour of a "quick win" or short-term fix. We have built an exceptional network of individuals with a proven track record of success as interim managers, and our focus on quality alongside candidate due diligence has been key to this.
We focus on improving the way interim technology and informatics specialists are connected with healthcare organisations. With quality of delivery and cost under ever-increasing scrutiny, we are passionate about ensuring our interims provide value for money.
Through prioritising the quality of our relationships with our own hand-picked network of interim specialists, rather than a database-driven model, we are focused on our goal: to be the leading resourcing provider of technology and informatics interims to the healthcare sector.
