Media release from MedRecruit
Doctor and founder of successful medical recruitment agency, Dr Sam
Hazledine, has today been announced as a finalist in the 2012 Ernst
and Young Entrepreneur Of The Year.
The awards recognise and reward the passion and drive behind
entrepreneurial businesses, across all commercial and industrial
sectors and at any stage of business development.
Dr Hazledine is the managing director of MedRecruit, a medical
recruitment agency he started in 2006 specialising in working with
doctors to place them in locum and permanent positions so they can
have it all - career and lifestyle. Over the past five years
Sam has transformed the medical industry to give doctors back their
lifestyles, and in doing so has positively impacted the provision
of healthcare throughout Australia.
"I am thrilled to be announced as a finalist in the Ernst &
Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards. Getting this far is
testament to the fact that what MedRecruit is providing for doctors
and hospitals is what they need right now - namely the ability for
doctors to go further with both a life and a career, and providing
certainty and confidence for hospitals in their staffing", Dr
Dr Hazledine has grown MedRecruit very quickly and has
differentiated himself from many entrepreneurs by not only coming
up with ideas but also putting together an effective team to build
a successful, profitable, sustainable business.
This isn't a first for Dr Hazledine, having been named a finalist
in 2008 also. "Since becoming a finalist in 2008 I have
continued to grow MedRecruit into a significant business that is
having a much wider impact and continues to grow. I think
it's an important step for any entrepreneur, to not only be able to
start a business, but to also maximise it and ensure
sustainability", said Dr Hazledine.
Dr Hazledine says he is excited about the next stage of the
competition; a 'Dragon's Den' style interview with the judging
panel in Auckland in late August.
