To many, the peace and quiet of the countryside is becoming an increasingly sought-after form of life. But what makes a job in the countryside so tempting it succeeds in catching a city bird?
Attracting doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers to work in the countryside has been a challenge for a long time. Young people are moving to cities, and even older folks are getting tired of the village gossip. Yet, things are beginning to change; at least during the corona-virus pandemic many began to miss the comfort of nature, while being locked inside a concrete box in an empty city. And the ever-increasing rental rates of urban centers are also giving frowns to many.
The small-town workplaces in the social work and healthcare industries have a lot to offer where cities fall short. When workplaces are manageable in size, co-workers and patients remain familiar and decision-making stays in the reach of employees.
In addition to a job in the countryside having lots to offer, life in the country itself is considerably more attractive: a one-bedroom apartment in the city equals a house with a backyard-access to nature paths, where the station rush is nowhere to be found. That is real peace.
What makes a job in the countryside attract employees from elsewhere depends on marketing, and how well workplace qualities and benefits are presented. Employees need to instantly discover, what is being offered.
This is where MediMatcher steps in.
When creating a job profile in MediMatcher, employers will give a detailed outline about whether they will, for instance, help employees with getting an apartment, offer trainings or have flexible hours. In addition, profiles will also include which type of baked goods are served at the break room, what activities does the town offer, does the facility have its own laboratory, what specialization opportunities there exist, and so on.
Job seekers will instantly see whether it is the place for them. And when an offer is tempting, all they must do is rent a van and pack up their things.
A new job in the countryside awaits!
