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.

"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin -my profile, certificates, Ts and Cs, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
