ABOUT MESSLY

Hi, I'm Abrar

I started Messly in 2016, with the goal of supporting doctors to have more fulfilling careers.

We've seen how difficult is it for doctors to find locum work. Banks can be difficult to join, and the agency world is scary and hard to work out. At a time when more doctors are looking to explore portfolio careers, or top up their income with locum work, we wanted to help.

This service is built with doctors in mind, putting you in control and helping you get great work, on your terms without hassle.

FAQs

Got Questions?

Who is Messly?

Messly is the leading online community for 27,000 UK junior doctors. Since 2016 we have helped doctors make better career decisions and have more fulfilling lives as doctors. Our team is run by doctors for doctors. You can learn more about us at messly.com. 

Why is Messly doing this?

We want to make it as easy as possible for doctors who want to return to the front line in the coming weeks. By helping you find the right role and the right hospital, you can work where you will be most effective, looked after and kept safe. 

What kind of roles will I get offered on Messly?

Initially the roles offered will be locums within NHS hospitals which are seeing higher staffing demands due to the coronavirus outbreak. We are looking to quickly expand into non-frontline locum roles which will include telemedicine and remote roles.

Is Messly a recruitment agency?

No, but we partner with NHS hospitals and recruitment agencies who have opportunities across the NHS so you access to a much wider range of opportunities than working with any single one. Recruiters can see your profile on Messly and you get to chose who you share your contact details with. You will then be contracted through bank or via an agency to quickly get you back on the frontline. We think this is the best way to manage the high demand for staff the NHS is going to face.

Do I have to apply for jobs in Messly?

No. You create an online profile, and hospitals with roles available that match your clinical skills and availability will contact you. They will explain who they are and what shifts they have. You can reply if you're interested or reject if not and they will leave you alone

Do I have to pay to use Messly?

No the service is completely free of charge for all doctors and we won’t charge hospitals either during the Coronavirus pandemic. We take a small fee from an agency for successfully placing you to help us maintain the service.
