How much does it cost to hire nurses from Agila?
The prices for nurse staffing vary depending on the level of education/training, the geographic location of your operation and the type of specialisation required. Get in touch with us and we will submit a proposal for a contract for the staffing of nurses.
Are you a procurement agency?
Agila is a procurement agency and has framework agreements for nurse staffing in most of Sweden's 21 counties. In addition to these framework agreements, we have a large number of agreements with private healthcare providers.
Within which specialist areas do you have jobs for temporary nurses?
We offer continuous staffing in all fields of specialisation with certified nurses.
How do you provide quality assurance for the nurses you use for staffing?
Before each assignment, we conduct at least two personal interviews with the nurses in question. In addition, we check the nurse in question's record with the Board of Social Services and any comments from the Swedish Healthcare Inspection Board (IVO), as well as accept copies of his or her nursing certificate and approved personal ID documentation. We always contact at least three relevant references who undergo a thorough interview. The checks with the Board of Social Services and IVO are conducted on an ongoing basis during the employment period.
Do you offer hiring of nurses throughout Sweden?
Yes! We offer nurse staffing throughout Sweden, from Kiruna in the north to Trelleborg in the south.
We have operations outside of Sweden. Can you help us with hiring nurses anyway?
Yes! We often provide nurse hiring services in the other Scandinavian countries and many of our nurses are interested in finding positions outside of the Nordic region.
What type of quality management system do you have?
Agila has its own quality management system with an ISO 9001 certification.
Do you have environmental certification?
Yes, we have ISO 14001 environmental certification.
How long has Agila been in business?
Agila launched its business in 2008 under the name Vårdassistans and changed the name to Agila in 2016. The aim of the buisness has been the same from the outset, healthcare staffing.
Why did you change your name from Vårdassistans to Agila?
One of the reasons we changed the name was to enable us to expand geographically under the same company name. Besides, the name Agila is easier to pronounce and is associated with words like flexible, adaptable and responsive, which are in line with our values.
Can you provide references?
Absolutely! Speaking with a colleague in the business who can explain how it is to hire nurses is an ideal way to understand the industry and how we work. Get in touch with us for contact information to relevant references.
