Formed in 2003 in response to a growing demand for locum hospital doctors, Athona realised a requirement in the market for an agency to focus on specific specialties within the healthcare industry. In August 2003, a national shortage of anaesthetists initiated our first recruitment drive.
After successfully building a strong bank of high-calibre anaesthetists, our reputation for placing suitable candidates into hard to fill posts grew and with that so did our dedication to specialist recruitment.
Using the same methodology, we used our experience and knowledge of the market to open dedicated recruitment desks for radiology, general medicine, pathology, paediatrics & neonates, surgical, psychiatry, dental, emergency medicine and obstetrics & gynaecology.
Today, Athona has thousands of active, registered doctors spanning a variety of specialties and sub-specialties.
Placing quality, compliant, specialty specific hospital doctors is only part of our company ethos. Athona is constantly striving for perfection, delivering against high standards, challenging targets and demanding service level agreements.
We have built and developed a team of professionals to meet these demands, providing our candidates and clients with the best possible experience and support from people who understand the market place.
Athona Doctor Recruitment is part of the Athona Group, which includes niche agencies focused on recruitment within the Allied Health and Education sectors.
