We recommend overseas doctors taking these RMO jobs as they are an “easy” introduction to the UK and the fastest way of getting a job in the UK.
You work week 1 or 2 weeks on and 1 week off, the contract is for 6 months, is well paid and accommodation is provided.
In the weeks you are not working, you can return to your home country or find locum work; one of the RMO companies we work with provides their doctors with locum work in their specialisms in the week you are not working as an RMO for them.
Please also note that generally it is far easier and quicker for a doctor to get a work permit to work as an RMO as the RMO companies are willing to do the work permits that you need to work in the UK. Many NHS hospitals will not do this for overseas doctors coming to the UK for the first time due to the time and cost involved.
We bring over many doctors in this way who use RMO work as a means of starting in UK and then getting them NHS hospital jobs. Please note that is far easier to get a job in the UK if you are here already and also if you can provide UK references and have experience of working in the UK.
We will provide all advice on how to start working in the UK
To summarise: view the six months working as an RMO as investment/training in understanding more about the UK and as a step you should take to get the job you really want.
