The contingency career

The contingency career

During 25 years of providing career planning support to the medical profession I have seen dozens of situations where a massive career crisis has brought someone to seek career guidance.

Career guidance should ideally be sought before a career crisis, not during it. The next best time is after it. Career crisis management is very different to career planning.

The trouble is that the state of mind within a career crisis or even with one imminent (i.e. less than six months away) is not conducive to undergoing the career guidance process.

"LocumDeck is so good and so intuitive that I am lost for words and utterly filled with glee.

It can send an email confirming the sessions that are booked and creates and emails invoices direct to the practice for you. These contain links to your beautifully laid out ‘credentials’ page with all your relevant documents, and a model contract that is all ready for you to accept or edit.

It automatically produces and sends the locum form A, and will produce locum form B. It also acts as the calendar... And it all happens automatically. It is really less than a minute to invoice and do the pension forms, with everything calculated perfectly."
