Locum Leaders is one of the staffing industry’s fastest growing physician recruitment companies specializing in part-time or temporary (aka “locum tenens”) physician roles for hospitals and health systems. The firm was ranked on the Inc. 5000 in 2013 as one of the nation’s largest privately held companies and has been named one of Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in healthcare.
Reaching busy physicians with time-sensitive information about new job opportunities is critical for Locum Leaders. With four out of five physicians now using smartphones, the company realized that the best way to reach many of its prospects was through a mobile job app that could be downloaded to any phone and platform.
Our RunMobile practice configured its Talent Acquisition App for the client using Locum Leaders job feed and branding. The app works on multiple platforms and devices, including the iPhone, which is the most widely used device among physician job seekers. The app lets physicians search for and filter new jobs by date, medical specialty and location. It also allows users to create alerts with push notifications to learn about the latest jobs immediately on their devices. A secure, web-based admin feature lets Locum Leaders view aggregate performance data for the app.
The popular app is widely used by its target audience giving Locum Leaders a competitive advantage in the physician recruitment space. Medical Economics magazine called it one of the Top Five Search Apps for Physicians.
