About Us: A Nursing Recruitment Agency

Established in 2013 and acquired by Hexad Associates in March 2017, Big Bear is now part of a larger family which also includes Regional Recruitment Services.

Driven to deliver exceptional service with empathy, we focused our recruitment expertise on the healthcare sector – nursing is a profession characterised by its caring approach and its desire to make a difference in how people feel. We share those values and that commitment.

Bridging talent with opportunity is what inspires us. As experts, we offer broad knowledge of many care specialities which makes it easier for us to link candidates with employers.

  • As a graduating RMN I could not have found a better recruitment agency to help me get started in my CAMHS nursing career. Nizaam has been phenomenal in finding me several fantastic opportunities and showed me the door to an amazing first nursing job, which is now secured and waiting for me once I graduate! Both Nizaam and Simi have been incredibly helpful and friendly and I honestly couldn’t thank them enough for helping me get to where I wanted to be.

    100% recommend Big Bear Recruitment and will most defiantly seek their support should I ever with to move on from my fantastic new job.

  • Big Bear Recruitment have been amazing. Unlike other companies, Big Bear Recruitment genuinely care about you & really want you to choose the option that's best for you. It's refreshing to work with people who are passionate, down to earth and enthusiastic about your new job prospects. Nothing was a problem and they were always at the end of the phone for any queries. I couldn't have asked more from them. Thanks again for the all support it's been great!
