I have worked as Locum biomedical scientist in microbiology laboratory based in a general hospital Scotland. I was placed there by Locum agency Atlantis medical. My point of contact in Atlantis was Zarrin. From the point of registration process with the agency to actually forwarding my CV to the prospective employer she was very helpful and always ready to guide me through different stages of process. Even after forwarding my CV and arranging the phonic interview with the laboratory manager she had always kept me updated with the progress.
Once the employment was confirmed through the agency she helped me in finding accommodation which is safe, as my biggest worry to go and work in a place where you have never been before was to find safe accommodation. She had also guided me through the process of registration with the account company who would sort out my weekly wages. Zarrin would also call me to find out if I was happy with the work place and if there were any issues. Throughout my time with Atlantis Locum agency I found the agency staff were very professional and were always ready to help. Though I have taken up a permanent post if I ever decide to work as locum again Atlantis would be my first choice.Akhil
After a prolong experience from various pathology laboratories in India, having had worked with multi-desciplinary roles at Ireland for 11 years I was confident that I will establish in the UK without any problems. But in the UK I realised my limitations that I was in my late sixties. Exploring jobs with the help of couple of recruitment agencies I started with a few short term locums. I was feeling dissatisfied with the work I was alocated.
My search for jobs ended-up in a short term locum at Homerton Hospital. It was the assignment from ATLANTIS Medical. The director of the company Siamak sounded way different than a recruitment manager. He understood me. He knew my limitations and abilities. The same job has attained a length of 5 years now.
I had an apportunity to learn and teach here. Also I learnt the typical working style in UK hospitals. I cannot resist myself from paying special thanks to Siamak and his team who has always stood by me. My relations with them are now beyond professional relations. I always enjoy his telephone instilling a confidence in my mind.
I again thank him and his team.Kanu

“I have worked for Atlantis as a locum at a College Hospital for a period of 6 months. My overall experience during this time was very positive. My consultant Zarrin was always/still is very helpful, friendly and professional at the same time. Any questions or issues I had she always dealt with it in a promptly manner”Deise

I'd like to state that its been a pleasure meeting and communicating with the Atlantis medical team (Kizzie, Zarrin and Siamak). I felt welcomed and the staff were very helpful, understanding, had a great sense of humor and were highly professional.Alireza

Working with Atlantis to get my job placement was very easy. All the staff especially my consultant Zarrin was extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. She ensured that my requirements were met when presenting me to the clients. She was relentless with the job search and kept in touch throughout the process.Frank

So far Atlantis Medical is in my opinion the Agency that gives the better support to their staff, seems like you really care about how we are doing, how we are integrating in our new role and are always very helpful when some problem comes up! You as my agent have been really supportive and friendly and are always there to help me whenever need. Thanks very much for your hard work, and keep going like that :)Tania

I have truly enjoyed working in my current placement role, even though I have been with Atlantis Medical for only a few months. My lovely recruitment consultant called Asmaa Tanver, has been very supportive, right from the beginning when I first signed up and she is very easy to contact, should I wish to discuss any concerns. It’s been a great first impression.Ben

Our hospital has built up such a good communication line between ourselves and Malcolm. I personally have always found him my first port of call if we are stuck for staff. He will always go the extra mile for us and that goes such a long way for our hospital. I’m always trying to get our agency staff to go with Atlantis as I tell them that this is the first agency I will use when I need staff.Marianne

I am originally from New Zealand and decided to start Locuming for the higher attractive salary and to fund my studies. I spoke to different Locum agencies and joined Atlantis as I was given the highest salary compared to other agencies. This is my second Locum position and will only work with Atlantis medical while I am Locuming as the level of professionalism and care is beyond expectation. I always get constant emails and calls from my agent Zarrin asking if everything is ok and if I need anything. She did her best to give the highest rate possible for the last two positions and I could not ask for more. This kind of service didn't exist when I started working as A locum for a different agency first time I arrived to the UK. I recommend Atlantis Medical for any professional who is looking for a Locum position and a professional dedicated friendly agency.Youss

For reason that do not matter now, I had to resing from my full time employment which had began in 2007. I was distraught and confused. Felt utterly unappreciated and neglected by my employer. Lost confidence in myself.
Zarrin took me under her wing, she was genuine, patient, empathetic, understanding and funny. Then I was introduced to Kizzy; if you want someone that can motivate you to complete the amount of paperwork and compliance required nowadays, she is your lady. Gently but firmly she makes you do it.
In less than 15 days Zarrin, Kizzy and their team found employment for me. I can honestly say I am very happy now. From day one, I was made feel confident, appreciated, this is certainly bringing the best in me as a Microbiologist. It is the equivalent of seeing light at the end of the tunnel.
I still call Zarrin for a chat, she is always available to listen and help.
If any one ever finds themselves in a situation like I described above. Please do not hesitate, break free, contact them. I could not recommend them enough. Thank you ladies.Maria

I wanted to thank you Zarrin and everyone involved at Atlantis Medical for getting me my first locum job. I must say, Atlantis Medical impressed me so much with their professional yet very friendly and inviting approach. I have registered with several agencies for BMS work and none so far stands any comparison to Atlantis Medical with they thoroughness and professionalism.
I registered my interest in looking for BMS work late one evening at around 9pm, and the next morning i was contacted by Zarrin. She was very friendly and also very professional. She was interested to know what type of work i wanted and we discussed further more details and within a very short space of time, days, Zarrin had found me a job. Very quickly.
Zarrin's willingness to help and accommodate my needs is impeccable; ans she actions things very promptly.
I will definitely recommend Atlantis Medical.BMS (Microbiology)
I can confirm that Sophie is an excellent consultant.
Sophie is of the utmost integrity and honesty. She is enthusiastic, dedicated, diligent and productive in her work. She maintains an outstanding rapport with her candidates and clients alike. She is always very cheerful, flexible and helpful in her attitude and manner. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she always goes that extra to accommodate my needs and requests.
Sophie is very supportive and I owe her a great deal of gratitude as without her commitment I would not have received work in particular shifts within my chosen speciality. I have no hesitation in providing this statement and on a personal note I know she is an asset to Atlantis Medical.
I would like to commend Sophie, member of your Atlantis Medical team. I am one of the Out of Hours (OOH) On-Call Managers, and am on the Rota 24/7 for one week every quarter. Many of our OOHs calls are relating to staff sickness – and it is often difficult to find available Bank staff at short notice.
It is crucial that we maintain safe staffing levels to ensure high quality NHS care to our patients.
I have therefore had contact with Sophie on many of these occasions, when she always has been extremely professional and very responsive.
I actually have a note after her name on my mobile – `Atlantis v. responsive OOH’
I would like to thank you for this excellent service.

Paul has been very proactive at seeking out locum roles available within the service I oversee. He has been efficient at finding staff suitable to the roles needed when we have them and accepts feedback where needed no staff issues or changes to the service needs. He has been excellent at communicating with myself and has inspired confidence in his ability to find suitable staff to meet the service needs.Lead Therapist for Enhanced Therapy Team
I would like to address my special thanks to Asha Abdullahi for her kindness, key support, dedication, honesty, flexibility and professionalism.
She has strong vision into both the requirements of the company and the candidate and understands the best practice of what makes positive workplace relationships which, in turn, places great emphasis on high standards of patient care with safe practice. She assists me in finding the right position, rather than the most readily available.
Clearly, Asha has reflected that Atlantis Medical is the professional nursing agency in which I would be very proud to be a part of.
These are the ethics Asha works by."

My experience of working with Jackie was exceptional. From initial contact until she successfully placed me into permanent employment, she consistently supported and helped me in any occasion. She went above and beyond to ensure I was prepared for interviews and provided an approachable but professional service. Highly recommended.
Atlantis Medical and Jackie are cool

Jackie is not only a real professional in recruiting but also a genuine,nice woman. She helped me since the HCPC application, passing through the interview process, all the nasty paperworks..and the move! an essential support in a new country! I'm glad to have met her. I would recommend Jackie 100 times as recruiter, as tireless worker and .. as friend!Michela

I am very happy to recommend Jackie and Atlantis as a recruitment consultant for overseas radiographers. As one of the largest NHS Trusts, we turnover staff on a regular basis and their support and assistance have been of great help.
The firm’s ability to arrange meetings and interviews through networks in Portugal and Italy has considerably helped our recruitment drive and we have recruited many candidates from these countries. Atlantis Medical took the time to pre-vet candidates, ensuring they met our standards and the relationship building work undertaken by Jackie and the firm went above and beyond, more than meeting our needs.
Whether it is meeting candidates at short notice or providing all necessary documents in a timely manner alongside good communication at all times, I have no hesitation at all in recommending Jackie and Atlantis Medical.

I contacted Atlantis Medical as a possible solution for chronic skill staffing issues at our hospital during the Summer 2015.
I made contact with Jackie Cloake who understood our staffing requirements and arranged to meet to face to face to make a plan for the organisation. Within a few weeks, she had supplied several sound CVs for us to consider.
After we made our choice, she set up Skype interviews and then liaised with our HR to ensure compliance, documentation and all checks were completed. When we ‘changed the goal posts’ – Jackie flexed her field of candidates. We were delighted to be able to appoint two well qualified, experienced staff that met our needs entirely. They have fitted in well and are a valuable addition to our team.
In summary, without Jackie’s assistance, we would not have been able to improve our staffing levels and I am happy to recommend her services.
In my opinion, once Jackie knew our specifications, she matched them and worked tirelessly to ensure the process was easy and swift

‘My personal experience when first joining Atlantis was the refreshing attitude presented by the consultant Jack Blair, whom I initially spoke with. As I had decided to find a different approach to working as an Operating Department Practitioner in the N.H.S. in a permanent role, I needed to be certain I was making the right choices. Jack was not only open and realistic about what could be achieved, but was positively supportive and professional in helping me to ensure compliance was met in a very thorough manner.
Colleagues Malcolm (Consultant) and Charmaine (Compliance) also reinforced good service in a professional manner from Atlantis, by continuing to ensure that nothing was missed and support was always available. Jack and the team made a lot of effort to build rapport and find an employment solution which not only met my suitability and capability, but offered hours to meet my personal circumstances. Overall I was very impressed with Jack's efficiency and ability to provide great service and I am enthused to be valued as part of that service’.Operating Department Practitioner
To Whom It May Concern in my capacity as the automation manager in Clinical blood sciences at St Georges Hospital we have over the last twelve months gone through a period of major instrument replacement and retraining of our permanent staff. During this period we have found the use of agency staff invaluable to help us maintain a professional service. Atlantis and Hanaa in particular have been highly supportive and continue to do so. I would recommend Atlantis and Hanaa as providing a professional service to any laboratory.Tony

“Miss Natalie Modeste” at Atlantis Medical work is remarkable. I knew her since December 2013. She is witty, punctual, helpful and purely professional on her job. She has been very effective and efficient in her working relationship with me. she has responded swiftly and professionally with regards to a few queries that I have raised though out the period I communicated with her. She always contacts me once a week via telephone or email to see how am getting on with my Locums at different hospitals.Rowayda

‘It is my pleasure to give my opinion about Atlantis Medical and the staff working there. I am extremely impressed particularly with Keeley Anthony since she has been the one I have been mostly in contact with since I started working as a locum GP. I found that all the staff in Atlantis Medical are very polite and very curious and very efficient in the manner they conduct their business with their clients . I am very grateful to all the staff at Atlantis Medical and in particular Keeley Anthony. It has been a pleasure working with you all.’GP
I have worked with and used Atlantis for many years to recruit a range of locum staff and enjoyed an excellent, effective and professional working relationship at all times. All of those booked have been of an excellent calibre. A significant “plus point” is that your Agents do not vigorously pursue potential clients once told that they have no locum requirements.Neil
I would just like to express my personal opinion on Atlantis Medical. My experience has been one of 100 percent satisfaction. I’ve found all of the staff to be extremely helpful. They strive to please their customers. Asmaa has made numerous calls on my behalf, followed up on any messages left for her by me, she doesnt leave me to worrry, she always tries to get the best result. She always does her very best in her work. She thinks ahead and deals with potential problems even before they arise.Michelle
Yes Lucy your services I always found helpful... You always manage to find me work and at a good rate and accommodation. As a locum it is tuff moving from one place to another. But I always found i am not alone I have Atlantis by my side.... All the best to Atlantis keep up with the good work...Sameena
Employing a locum through Atlantis medical has been a very smooth & easy process with readily available support.
Atlantis Medical have supplied a high quality of candidates. Our organisation now has an exclusive use policy with Atlantis Medical.Dan

‘I have been very happy with the service provided by Atlantis Medical. Emails have been responded to promptly and advice given when another agency was trying to charge an introduction fee.
Everyone was extremely helpful.
Quality of candidates have been very good.
I will go to Atlantis Medical first if I need temp staff in the future.
I would certainly recommend you to other hiring managers.
Also you haven’t been pushy like some other agencies.’
Atlantis Medical have provided me with suitable candidates who have helped the team in times of difficulty. The team at Atlantis Medical are easy to deal with and quick to respond.Neil
I have to say that I have found Lucy Lipiak a very charming friendly and helpful member of the team at Atlantis medical. Lucy understands the needs of the department and has always dealt with my requests in a friendly, prompt and professional manner and has sent me some good candidates.Shilpa
