I Discovered How To Escape The Rat Race... Now I'm sharing My Secret

Bec blog.png

Here at Prescript, we are often talking to Radiologists who want to have a bit of a break from their current employment but are not in a position where they want to resign altogether. It’s a tricky situation because they know they are feeling a little flat, want to do something different or just need a break from it all, however, the role they currently have really suits their lifestyle and/or career path. 

I was in this position myself back in 2016. I didn’t want to give up the great role I had, but I had been working exceptionally hard, and I strongly desired a decent European trip, longer than the usual four weeks annual leave that was available to me. When my partner and I got the invite to our friends 40th birthday in Northern Italy, that was the catalyst to make it happen. We decided to take a sabbatical from work to spend time travelling through Europe.

From the point of having the leave confirmed, suddenly everything felt exciting as we had so much to look forward to. We decided that rather than hop from city to city, we would visit fewer countries and spend more time in each of them. We put down our personal wish lists and started planning an itinerary that ended up including UK, France, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Greek Islands and Croatia. 

We were carefree and invigorated which was just what the doctor ordered.

While overseas we were able to spend quality time with some dear friends who live in some of the places we visited. We also had some friends from Australia join in for parts of our adventure. We hiked in the Swiss Alps, the Pyrenees in Spain and on the steep hills of Cinque Terra in Italy. We had a sommelier take us around the Piedmont wine region. We had a personal tour and tasting at a beautiful prosecco winery an hour from Venice. We ate and ate and ate all the delicious cuisines on offer. We visited art galleries and museums. We caught trains, planes, ferries, buses, and even took on driving a car in peak hour Barcelona (now that was an adventure). We were carefree and invigorated which was just what the doctor ordered.

On returning to Australia, we were constantly asked if we were depressed now we had returned to ‘normal’ life, but we didn’t feel this way at all. Instead, we felt gratitude for the fact that we were able to take time away to have that amazing experience and felt genuinely refreshed, happy and full of life again. It truly was an exceptional experience where we lived life large, saw beautiful places, spent quality time with great friends and had a lot of laughter along the way.

If you’ve been feeling like a sabbatical is in order and perhaps would like to travel yourself but would prefer the financial security of generating income at the same time, please make contact with me as we have numerous options available both here in Australia and abroad. 

For example, Teleradiology is a fantastic option if you’d like to travel while continuing your career as a FRANZCR Radiologist, working 7 days on / 7 days off from anywhere in the world.

Meet James Hill | Prescript Founder & Recruitment Partner

James.png
I am really pleased to introduce Prescript to you. I believe for you to partner with the right agency, that reflects your wishes and lifestyle choices, is so important. Prescript’s focus is on what matters most to you, whatever stage of your career, your location or your future plans.
 

Every day the team at Prescript help doctors take the next step in their career and assist regional hospitals and practices across Australia with their long-term (permanent) and short-term (locum) vacancies.

We’re known for making for regional communities feel like they have the best doctors in town.

I’ve chosen Australia as my home and I’ve loved getting to know different places - from small towns to larger cities - and exploring the challenges that their health services face. Over the past decade I’ve helped hundreds of doctors relocate from interstate or abroad to help regional Australia move towards being fully staffed with doctors.

The struggles that remote communities face in receiving consistent high-quality healthcare are widely talked about. I’ve travelled to the NT and seen for myself the remote Aboriginal communities that lack healthcare provision. What might surprise you though is that the problem is also much closer to home. Even a short distance outside of our capital cities, the doctor shortage is very real. The point is that this is not just an issue just for those living outside of Sydney or Melbourne, it’s a problem for all of us when we travel across Australia to enjoy regional holidays or visit family and friends.

From countless meetings with doctors, hospitals and practices over the last 12 years we understand that they have three key challenges:

✖️ They don’t have the time to add finding a new position or recruiting to their daily tasks.

✖️ They struggle to identify the best position or attract the best applicants.

✖️ They know that promoting themselves or a vacancy so that it is engaging and relevant takes time yet they want immediate results.

We offer a range of recruitment services that will solve these challenges:

Firstly, Prescript’s 7-Step recruitment framework on behalf of doctors, hospitals and practices for permanent positions – putting recruitment on the top of our list and off theirs.

Secondly, Prescript’s locum management service – providing immediate support for uncertain or busy times.

Thirdly, bespoke retained or exclusive recruitment searches and projects.

We believe that regional Australian hospitals and practices should be fully staffed with doctors so that communities everywhere have the healthcare they deserve. Everything we do is with that in mind. We are committed to helping solve the problem of attracting doctors and get an immense amount of satisfaction from seeing the end result - departments and clinics that run better, have more capacity, improved morale and less stress. We also strive to place doctors where they’ll feel valued and really enjoy what they do.

As a B1G1 Business For Good, we incorporate purpose and meaning to our business through giving. Together, we are making great difference in the world by doing what we do every day.
Logo.png

At Prescript, we want to make sure our values flow through everything we do. That’s one reason why every year we set a giving goal through our partnership with the Global Giving Business initiative, B1G1.

Through 2019, our goal is to provide 10,000 days of Medical Care to children in the slums of India. Diseases such as diarrhoea, malaria and rabies are rife. The provision of medical services helps to reduce the mortality rate and allow children to thrive under extreme conditions.

Each quarter in 2019 we link our services to providing 2,500 days of medical support for these kids.

You’re part of making it happen by using Prescript.

O&G and Medicine Recruitment Partner | Prescript's Interview with Marcia Beere

Prescript - 2018 Feb_22635  crop long .jpg

Hi, I'm Grace Clueit, I look after Vacancies, Marketing and Communications at Prescript Recruitment. I spoke with Marcia Beere to get the inside info on her role as Recruitment Partner at Prescript. I found out more about her experience and how she plays a leading role in helping O&G and Medicine doctors with the next step in their careers.

Marcia recruits for locum and permanent positions across regional Australia with a focus on Medicine and O&G. Marcia has worked in medical recruitment for ten years, in both hospital and agency settings.


What path did you take to get to Medical Recruitment Partner?

Marcia: New Zealand born, following a typical overseas experience in the UK, I moved back to Australia in the early 2000's and quickly established myself into a medical administration role via a temping agency. At the time the hospital was short-staffed and needed someone who had the ability to look at a problem and fix it. I enjoyed the problem-solving side of it and found being part of the candidate pathway from junior to consultant very fulfilling. I love being able to provide that strong support during critical points in peoples lives.

Being able to help hospitals stay fully-staffed and helping meet that community demand was my primary motivation to get into the full recruitment side. I also love the people contact. It’s so rewarding listening to the needs of both candidates and clients, tailoring positions to suit individual needs, and then being able to bring it all together.


What do you see as big issues within medical recruitment right now?

The biggest issue that we are helping to solve is the shortage in regional areas. It’s a consistent problem across the whole of Australia, excluding Sydney and Melbourne, and it is why we exist as an agency. Living in a regional area myself, I have seen the impact of the doctor shortage. It is continually challenging for hospital networks and I feel very privileged to be able to provide support and energy in addressing some of these challenges. 

rudi-strydom-3768-unsplash.jpg
What are you doing differently for O&G and Medicine doctors?

I'm very specific in my approach and ensure I take the time to find the right roles to suit the right people, specifically avoiding the ‘one size fits all’ approach. I instead opt to spend more time making sure everything has been done properly and to the highest standard.

Quality over quantity is definitely something I focus on. As a company we won’t just partner with ‘anyone’ and we take our time to provide a bespoke, personalised service. The proof is in the meaningful, long term relationships that we’ve created with both candidates and clients alike.


Did you know…?

Marcia lives in Bega, the rural heartland of the Sapphire Coast, and also the home of Bega Cheese! When she’s not helping rural hospitals find the doctors that they need, she’s looking after her family and working on the farm with her cows, what a woman!

stijn-te-strake-316914-unsplash.jpg

You’ve been working in medical recruitment for a long time now, do you have any predictions for the future careers of doctors in Australia?

While working in health care facilities, we would look forward to a tsunami of doctors to flood through our hospitals. For whatever reason, we’re not seeing these extra doctors translate into extra staff, at least not in the regional areas where the demand is increasing. I am a tree-changer who moved from the city to the fields of a regional centre and I am not unique in this change. Many people are choosing to relocate away from the hustle and bustle of a city and enjoy what the regional centres have to offer. It is great to be able to help grow the services by placing doctors in some of these areas. 

This is something where there isn’t just one simple fix and the problem isn’t going to go away anytime soon. Having more medical graduates is one factor in reducing the shortage of doctors of course but there are other factors too. Many of these graduates will end up as specialists in cities and working in private practices but that doesn’t help with the shortage in public sectors in regional areas


What do you enjoy / what frustrations do you have about your role?

I enjoy having long term relationships with people and really getting to know them – both doctors and clients. Seeing doctors progress through their career and working with clients for such long periods of time is great. I don’t think that I’d have the same kind of ongoing relationships if I were working in a different industry.

Knowing that I work for a passionate company, who wants to make a difference is an amazing feeling and is truly demonstrated through our interactions with candidates and clients. I continue to enjoy the field that I have invested a lot of time into and being able to carry that on is a real honour.

One frustration I tend to encounter is dealing with bureaucracy and working within not one, but multiple public health systems that all have their own idiosyncrasies. For example, if you are credentialed to work full time in one state health service, that doesn’t mean you are credentialed to work as a locum in that same state health service, and instead need to almost start as if the candidate is a brand-new person within the system.

This is one of the wider frustrations of working within health – everyone feels it. It is, however, something that is there for a positive reason and it’s important that these procedures are in place to protect doctors and hospitals.
