Sara Moorby, Senior Recruitment Consultant

Sara has been a Senior Recruitment Consultant with Holt since she joined back in 2010. With almost two decades of experience in the industry, Sara builds strong, long-lasting relationships with the doctors she works with a high level of customer service being second nature.

To relax outside of work, Sara enjoys catching up with friends and being out and about with her family and dog, but time with the dog is more enjoyable when it isn’t jumping in every muddy puddle it sees!

An extraordinary, friendly, professional service – It was lovely to work with Sara Moorby who went above and beyond to help me secure the job I wanted.

Hayley Hudson, Senior Recruitment Consultant  

Working closely with Sara throughout her career with Holt, Hayley has successfully helped a broad range of doctors secure their next career move, whether that be locum work or permanent placements.  Hayley's favourite part of the job is securing doctors their ideal jobs, her sharp understanding of the medical industry and knowing what it takes to be successful puts her in an excellent position to place her doctors in these roles.

Hayley enjoys unwinding with a spot of gardening and relaxing with her family.

Very professional in their approach. Very good at listening to any issues raised and importantly resolving them. Hayley Hudson has been amazing and was able to find me work that suits me. The Responsible Officer at Holt is also very supportive and gave some very helpful advice when needed.

Sarah Hunt, Lead Consultant

Sarah’s experience with a broad range of specialties has given her exactly the experience she needs to exceed doctors’ expectations, with over 20 years of experience dealing with a full range of doctors and clients, her natural drive and passion for recruitment places her in the perfect position to find you your ideal role. Part of this love for the job comes from meeting and connecting with different people from different backgrounds and finding out what exactly they are looking for from Holt’s service.

Sarah enjoys traveling and particularly likes adventuring around the Scottish Highlands.

From the start, Sarah was engaged, professional and really interested in finding the sort of roles and locations tailored to what I wanted. She clearly explained the process of application, talked me through the steps and is a constantly available, a very knowledgeable point of contact both before and during the job.  I’d very much recommend Holt to any doctors looking for short- and longer-term locum work.

Abi Lazenby, Senior Recruitment consultant

Like Sarah, Abi has worked with a variety of specialties during her career with Holt, which spans 12 years, having prior experience working in the consultant Team, along with A&E and Acute.

Abi is the definition of a people person; she strives to get to know each of her doctors which allows her to push for exactly the jobs that they are looking for. Her bubbly and caring personality ensures that everyone is always dealt with on a human level, this goes hand in hand with her high level of knowledge and understanding of the industry that makes her doctors so appreciative of her work.

In her spare time, Abi likes to bake and creates wedding cakes for a number of friends and colleagues.

Abi Lazenby, my agent and advisor, has been tireless in finding and securing the right posts for me and has considered my needs and circumstances with great sincerity. She is an asset to the Holt team as well as valuable to my own locum career.

Kate Hopkinson, Lead Consultant  

Kate is one of Holt's longest-serving staff, having been with the company since it started in 2008. Like Sarah, Kate has worked over a broad spectrum of specialties for the past 20 years. Working with positivity and professionalism, Kate has an amazing work ethic and puts in a huge amount of effort for the doctors she works with and the hospitals she assists.  Her sharp wit and sense of fun make her great to work with which is evidenced by the fantastic relationships she has with both our clients and doctors

In her spare time, Kate loves spending time outdoors, she enjoys camping, hiking up mountains, and skiing.

Kate has been amazing right from the start of my journey as a doctor in UK. I can’t thank her enough. She is hardworking and very good in what she does. She knew exactly where to place me, so that I could get the initial UK experience and develop my skills. She then helped me to progress gradually in a consistent manner, providing the best available rates for the position. She was always available and prompt in answering my calls and emails. At the same time always honest and truthful about the posts available and rates. Holt as an agency has been great to work with, with their reward scheme and appraisal. I was never left unanswered as there would be someone answering my calls and emails even out of hours.  Would definitely recommend Kate and Holt to everyone. Thanks again. It has been wonderful working with you.
