There are more healthcare contractors who are expecting a rise in job opportunities, due to the recent government promise of further investment into the National Health Service.

The latest annual survey, carried out by Giant Group, shows that 20% of respondents are in fact expecting more NHS job opportunities to come their way over the next year.

Matthew Brown, Managing Director of Giant Group, said, “The additional NHS budgets promised last month will certainly be beneficial for specialist healthcare contractors. As hospitals look to increase efficiencies and meet growing patient demands, experienced professionals will be required to oversee developments.”

“It would also appear that of all the sectors we work in, healthcare is one of the most confident.” Brown continued. “The latest figures show a shift in balance of preference between long term contract and higher per hour payment, suggesting contractors are becoming increasingly optimistic about opportunities.”

The report also found that there was a significant rise in the number of contractors working in private hospitals and clinics.

According to the findings, 11% of respondents worked in this area; this is quite an increase compared to the findings during July 2011 and June 2012, where there were just 2%.

It has been predicted that this figure will rise even more, to 14% over the next year, as more private hospitals look to grow and develop further.
