The Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI) is the national membership organisation for anaesthetists at all stages of their career. Their vision is to be ‘an effective voice for the speciality, a leading contributor to health policy affecting anaesthesia and a leader in raising public awareness and understanding of the anaesthetist’s role’. The AAGBI has a membership of over 11,000 and 35 staff.

A key part of the AAGBI’s long future strategy relates to operational support, including: becoming fully digital; striving for continuous improvement; adopting a more commercial approach to income generation; minimising running costs, such as through competitive tenders; improving our current premises; and being greener. With this in mind AAGBI approached Maxwell Stephens exclusively to recruit a brand new Facilities, Contracts and ICT Manager.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Maxwell Stephens. They were always on top of things and always kept me informed at every stage of the process. I didn’t expect to find an English recruitment firm like them because unfortunately I have had a lot of bad experiences. They prepared me very well before the interviews with links to their knowledge bank and persons attending the interview. Maxwell Stephens are a smooth, personal agency who are always on top and well prepared.
