Efficient and professional

​We are impressed by the efficiency and professionalism with which MSI Group have facilitated the appointment of middle grade doctors in Intensive Care, Emergency and Acute Medicine. Their attention to detail and consistent approach in recruitment of these doctors is remarkable, yet all their personnel are always compassionate towards the international doctors.

Top notch support

​MSI provides top notch support in relocating to the UK as an IMG. Lisa Thomas is an outstanding recruitment consultant; she provided guidance from the job advert to updating my CV, and interview prep until I landed a job in the UK. I recommend Lisa and MSI as the go to agency for relocating to the UK. Thank you Lisa

​Working with Georgina and the team at MSI is a pleasure. There is always excellent communication and I know that the candidates are being well looked after prior to their arrival at the Trust.​I have full confidence in MSI and their ability to source a high calibre of candidates fitting our strict criteria. The majority of the interviews organised with MSI are successful and of a high standard, resulting in quick deployment and excellent nurses joining our team.​I am extremely pleased with the successful relationship our teams have formed and look forward to continuing this project with their support!

Great experience

If you ever need to trust someone to guide and help you through the whole process of immigrating to the UK as a nurse after your CBT and IELTS, I would strongly recommend Georgina, and I say this out of experience. At a time when I was torn between what agency to go with, I stumbled upon MSI and Georgina. she gave me a choice of several NHS Trusts I could go with, and when my first choice were taking too long to come back with my COS, she arranged another interview with the trust I eventually ended up with, and I'm absolutely grateful to her, for convincing me to go with this trust, because I totally love it here.

​Very efficient

​‘Very efficient’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Georgina. I had the pleasure of working with her throughout the period of my migration to UK. I was happy with the fact that she always had a listening ear, she was always available anytime you needed her which is a great asset especially for those migrating because they always have a million and one question to ask. She earns my highest recommendation!!

Efficient, reliable and extremely diligent

​I have been privileged to be acquainted with Ms Georgina Elias during my entire migration process. She was very helpful. She is very efficient, reliable and extremely diligent and has an excellent rapport with people. Because of her outstanding qualities I have no hesitation of recommending her to you.

Great recruitment company

If you are in search of a great recruitment company and a knowledgeable person to get you through the process, I highly recommend Georgina Elias from MSI Group. I have been her client since 2018 and I had only positive experiences working with Georgina. She was and is very caring, professional, trustworthy individual, who takes her clients best interest at heart. She truly encouraged me to keep going with the lengthy process and offered me support and advice along the way. Even though my journey is still ongoing, it gives me a piece of mind to know I have Georgina by my side. She became not only the person who guided me but a friend to my family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you did and do every day! ​​
