SPONSORED: Dental Recruitment: A Service With A Smile

A conversation with KELLY SAXBY, Managing Director, Green Apple Dental recruitment service.

Kelly Saxby

After several years working in dental recruitment, Kelly Saxby decided to set up her own recruitment company, Green Apple Dental, in 2010. Based in Kent, England, Green Apple Dental is one of the only agencies in the UK that specialises solely in recruiting dentists nationwide, both permanent and locum. Kelly and her team work to fill NHS, private and specialist roles at independently owned practices, small groups, corporate companies and community health centres nationwide. With nearly 40 years’ combined experience in her team, Kelly is proud of her team’s in-depth knowledge of the sector and of their commitment to providing a personal and professional service for both dentists and clients alike.

What is special about Green Apple Dental?

For me, the backbone of recruitment work should be first-class customer service. You must look at long-term relationship building, not quick and easy short-term gains. With dentists, we take the time to understand what motivates their search so we are looking for roles that meet their own personal criteria. For clients, it is important they feel they are valued and listened to, so that we can match dentists to their specific practice needs and provide them with strong working relationships that last. Finding the right person for the right job is highly satisfying and helps keep moral high within our recruitment team as well. Our excellent customer service is at the forefront of all that we have achieved to this day and is why we are so highly recommended by both candidates and clients alike.

How would you describe Green Apple Dental’s ethos?

As recruitment consultants, working ethically is crucial; we pride ourselves on being professional, trustworthy, discreet and transparent. We value teamwork and this trickles down through everything we do. For nine years we have focussed solely on recruiting dentists making our knowledge of the sector second to none and the cornerstone that contributes to the founding ethos of our company. Finally, we aim to provide a personalised and tailored service for every person and company that we work with.

What benefits do dentists seeking work gain by using your service?

Dentists work extremely hard during their studies and throughout their career. While dental training is rigorous, dentists are not always taught the best way to job search or how to negotiate contracts. This is where we can help. Our service is completely free to those looking for work; we are not paid by clients until we find a suitable candidate who actually starts working. We support the dentist at every point in the process, from help compiling a CV to ensuring job interviews are organised at times that suit. We can assist with travel research as well help to negotiate a contract that will satisfy the dentist’s employment needs.No matter which stage a dentist is in their career, we will make sure that they are fully prepared; knowing how to sell themselves as well as being able to offer them a great number of options helps them to make the right choices. It can be difficult to focus on searching for a job whether a dentist is working or studying full or part time, so working with an agency is beneficial to them. We work with such a large number of practices across the UK that we can make sure that they don’t miss out on opportunities — and we are flexible in terms of our contact hours so that they can get in touch at times that suit them. Job seekers can be sure that they will get the best selection of roles available within their desired search criteria.

And what about your clients, the dental practices themselves?

We work with such a wide range of dental practices throughout the UK that we have hundreds of vacancies advertised, thus we are attracting new candidates every day. Our database comprises thousands of who have registered or been recommended to us. We can often find excellent staff for a business more efficiently than they would by advertising on the open job market as many dentists are not actively searching but want to know about upcoming opportunities. We also get numerous applications from candidates who are not suitable and managing this takes time that not all practices have to spare. We pride ourselves on our marketing skills and will ensure that a client’s jobs are promoted in the best possible ways. There is no cost to the practice unless we find a suitable candidate that starts working. We work hard to match individuals to a client’s circumstances and business ethos, increasing the chances that newly recruited staff will flourish in their team and stay with the practice for years.

What message would you like to send to dentists who are actively searching or thinking of looking for a new job?
