See how project recruitment works and what it can acheive

1. Volume recruitment: hire 1 -1,000 professionals
TTM Healthcare employs 15 years of unmatched experience in international recruitment to make each overseas project an efficient, cost effective and satisfying venture for our clients. Using our global project methodology, (Fig.1) which is completely unique to us, because it was developed in-house by our project managers, we source up to 250 professionals in one international project, or up to 1,000 candidates for a client undertaking multiple projects. Projects are not exclusively available for such high volume requirements; we can coordinate an effective campaign for any number of openings.
2. Fully managed service (We take care of everything)
  • Pre- offer: in full consultation with you, your dedicated project manager oversees a team executing all activities from advertising and screening, to travel arrangements and interview centres.
  • Post-offer: as soon as you make an offer to an international candidate, our delivery experts step in to ensure they arrive, fully compliant and ready to work, as soon as possible. We will provide practical assistance to ensure everyone’s arrival is as smooth as possible- we’ll even book flights on their behalf.
  • 96%+ candidate retention: post-placement support ensures each overseas professional settles in well and results in impressive candidate retention rates of 96% and above after 12 months.
