Flexible schedules are an increasingly important work arrangement for many job seekers. If you want something that allows you a better work/life balance, how do you go about finding these opportunities? Can a staffing agency specializing in healthcare placements be a great resource? The answer is yes, of course, but knowing how to interact with a recruiter will give you more access to better positions that fit your schedule. Here’s how.
Try locum tenens.
A common way that organizations refer to individuals who can fill in for their full-time professionals when they are on leave or other arrangements. Some healthcare professionals specialize in locum tenens roles, and there will be plenty of openings. You can work with an agency that is also designed to make these placements.
Consider per diem jobs.
Healthcare jobs that are literally day to day are called per diem jobs. This will allow you the most options for truly flexible work. You can load the shifts you want and have time off when you need it as well. If you’re okay with very short-term assignments, per diem may be a good solution.
Contract work is more similar to full-time work, but you will be working for the agency who placed you rather than permanently with the facility where you work. Many healthcare professionals like this arrangement as it gives them accountability for their quality of work and schedule.
Sign up for temp jobs.
Like any other industry, temporary work is exactly what it sounds like. You sign up with a healthcare staffing agency who will help you find placements on a short-term, long-term, or temporary to hire basis. You have the flexibility to work with your recruiter to help you find the right opportunity for your career.
The more you know about your options, the easier it will be to find the flexible schedule you want. Working with an agency specializing in healthcare placements will be your best avenue to achieving your long-term goals, even in a short-term package.
