Rare Skills Sourced

NehalKing Fahad Armed Forces Hospital

"We struggled to find a candidate with scarce skills in Paediatric Cardiac Surgery until Odyssey sourced the perfect surgeon who had the capabilities we needed and even spoke Arabic on top."

The hospital had an expanding Cardiac Department and busy service and urgent need for a western trained Paediatric Cardiac Surgeon. Despite the excellent package on offer, the post remained vacant with no suitable surgeons on the horizon.


The Result

Odyssey resourcer Mr Saki developed a profile of the ideal candidate for the position and used his expert search techniques to scour networks of Cardiac Surgeons worldwide. He quickly found an excellent surgeon in a major centre in a neighbouring Middle Eastern country.

The surgeon had recently returned home after a long and sound training period in the UK and was intrigued when contacted by Mr Saki with the prospective offer. He was interviewed, credentialed and offered the job. 

Three months later, the Cardiac Surgery Centre was able to run its Paediatric Cardiac Surgery service with its new expert surgeon who had the additional advantage of speaking Arabic as his native language.
