Sterling Cross Recruitment - Dan Wise

Sterling Cross is a recruiter with a difference. Whether you’re a nurse, ODP, pharmacist, therapist, medical doctor or healthcare worker, we have specialist teams of expert consultants who understand your field and can help connect you to your next employer. And unlike old fashioned recruitment agencies, we don’t charge placement fees to our clients, which means that we often have access to vacancies that other recruiters don’t have.

Our service is free to use for candidates, and we will guide you through the process of applying and interviewing for your next role, making this as simple as possible. What’s more, we can often do this without lengthy application forms and drawn-out procedures you experience when applying directly to an employer.

Our clients include the NHS, private hospital groups, mental health services, community pharmacies, elderly care and nursing homes, schools and colleges, cruise ships, GP services and specialist clinics, and we operate across the UK. We even work with some overseas employers, for those looking for a change of scenery!
