Intrepid recruitment pathway for Northern Ireland dentists

by Guy Hiscott

The Northern Ireland Medical & Dental Training Agency (NIMDTA) has today [5 April] announced it has gone live with Intrepid Pathway from healthcare IT solutions and services specialist, Hicom.

Intrepid Pathway is the new, enhanced version of the fully-hosted online recruitment and applicant tracking system I:CAMS, and works to support national and local recruitment in one easy-to-use single solution.

NIMDTA ensures dentists in Northern Ireland are effectively trained to make sure that patients receive the highest standards of care.

NIMDTA is also responsible for recruitment of all health specialties throughout Northern Ireland.

Margot Roberts, administrative director at NIMDTA, comments, ‘Over the last couple of years, we have seen more and more deaneries in the UK moving onto the Intrepid platform to manage training, education and career progression. We currently use Intrepid and it is serving us well, but like most deaneries, we still had issues with vacant posts, which gave us a strong case to approach the Health and Social Care Board for the provision of additional funding for Intrepid Pathway.’
Among its features, Intrepid Pathway offers advantages for dental professionals, providing a single recruitment portal for specialty vacancies managed by NIMDTA, as well as other vacancies managed by other Deaneries and colleges using Intrepid Pathway.
