Marketing Manager/Growth Hacker 


LocumTap is a healthtech startup. We’re here to support the NHS and healthcare sector by providing software solutions that give clarity of locum shift need, availability of internal resources and a route to experienced Locums, without the need to use locum recruitment agencies. Our services already save the NHS £100,000’s and deliver a clearer line of sight around resources, ultimately delivering care quicker and more efficiently than ever before. We supercharge the hospital’s staffing capabilities and reduce the barrier of entry for clinicians to book and manage their locum shifts.

The LocumTap Founders are a team of experienced NHS professionals, who’ve been on the front line of staffing issues and set up LocumTap in an effort to solve some of the pressing operational challenges facing hospitals today.

The story so far:

Launched in 2016 and working closely with a significant number of healthcare organisations; including hospitals, NHS trusts and specialist charities, we’ve built a reputation around high level delivery and deep organisational understanding of the clients whose ambitions we support through our technology solutions. Now is a crucial time in our progression and expansion and an amazing time for a marketing manager to join us.

The opportunity:

We’re rapidly acquiring new NHS Trusts to the LocumTap platform and with that we need to grow the number of Locums using our app. We currently have a highly engaged user base which we’re expanding as we move into new areas over UK. Our users love what we do, our stats prove this.

You’ll love implementing digital innovations as much as we do and saving the NHS £100,000s in the process. It’s an exciting time for us and presents an excellent opportunity for a marketing manager to join the team.
