Member under the microscope

Corrine Taylor’s (FRCSA) new mission to improve clinical services in Australia and New Zealand.

With a career spanning two decades, Corrine Taylor (FRCSA) has a few feathers in her cap. She is Chair of the Association of Medical Recruiters in Australia & New Zealand and holds an appointment on the Association of Nursing Recruitment Agencies council. Over the years Corrine has been an active member of RCSA, volunteering her time for the betterment of the industry…and now she has added another notch to her belt.

Corrine has been appointed Clinical Workforce Solutions Executive to lead Talent Quarter Group’s (TQG) newest division. It’s a big responsibility. Taylor will be in charge of the organisation’s Clinical Services Division, which provides top-level searches for highly specialised and hard to fill roles in the clinical space across Australia and New Zealand.

“The Clinical Services division will deliver long-term health solutions in the clinical space, largely in communities that lack highly specialised health practitioners,” says Corrine.

It’s a hugely challenging job. Both countries are in the grips of skills shortages in the medical field. New Zealand’s situation is particularly dire. The job Corrine has taken on requires tenacity, passion and a ‘never say die’ attitude.

“It is something I am incredibly proud to be doing, given the positive impact it will have on healthcare systems in Australia and New Zealand, says Taylor.

“Throughout my career, I have travelled extensively and developed relationships with health professionals and hospitals throughout the world.

“I have personally and professionally lived and breathed in this sector for a long time. I have deep networks in healthcare and a strong understanding of federal and state statutory and stakeholder processes and requirements, which I’m excited to bring to Talent Quarter Group (TQG).”

Talent Quarter Group Managing Director, Sue Healy says Corrine was the perfect choice for the role.

“We’re very excited to welcome Corrine, who is one of Australia’s top workforce solution specialists in healthcare, to the business,” TQG Managing Director Sue Healy said.

“Corrine has held various senior executive and director roles and owned and run medical, nursing, aged care, and social and community locum and permanent recruitment businesses.

“She has also collaborated with public health facilities throughout Australia on key health workforce challenges, which have seen her involved in numerous meetings with federal and state health ministers and shadow ministers to obtain funding for specific projects and campaigns.

“We are excited about Corrine leading our new Clinical Services division, which will really build on the impact we’re having on our healthcare system by connecting senior level clinical candidates domestically and internationally with opportunities to make a real difference to people’s lives.”
