Cleveland Clinic London opens its doors with the help of Espirita!

On 21st March 2022, Cleveland Clinic opened the doors to its brand new, state-of-the-art London hospital, supported by the hard work of our incredible Espirita team.

Since we were awarded the RPO contract with them in January 2019 we have recruited in excess of 1,200 Caregivers (this is what CCL call all their employees) across the outpatients facility, which opened in September 2021, and the main hospital in Belgravia which opens it’s doors to it’s first patient on 29th March 2022. The roles range from the NHS equivalent of a Band 2, up to the equivalent of a Band 9 across a range of departments including Nursing, Allied Health Professionals and Admin and Clerical roles.

The Espirita team have played a key role in the strategy of recruitment across CCL, advising and providing our knowledge and expertise to help a US based client navigate the Healthcare market in the UK. We worked closely with the external marketing company to attract the best of the UK healthcare workforce to CCL whilst being respectful and cognisant of the NHS and its workforce.

Bobbie Hewitt, Account Director said, 

“I have been extremely lucky to of worked with such a dedicated, hardworking and knowledgeable team and I am very proud of what they have achieved. As a team we have overcome a huge number of challenges - a US based client building a brand in the UK, cultural differences and styles of recruitment, challenging/unique roles new to the UK and on top of all that a global pandemic which forced us to pivot and created virtual recruitment processes. The team showed a huge amount of resilience and remained dedicated to delivering the best to the client. 

I am often stopped by Dr Donley (CEO) and the Executive Team at CCL and given feedback on their admiration and respect for my team on the numbers they have delivered. We have played a huge part in a historical milestone for healthcare in the UK and my team should be proud of all that they have, and continue to, achieve. I am forever grateful for being given the opportunity to manage such a brilliant, dedicated and hardworking team.”

A special thank you to all the team for their hard work and dedication to supporting this client and contract. We could not have achieved everything that we have without each and every one of you.
