Locumpedia Introduces the First Truly Free Locum Tenens Physician Job Board for Staffing Agencies

Locumpedia founder previously co-created the industry-standard LocumTenens.com job board and other healthcare job sites.

Locumpedia, the locum tenens industry platform that helps staffing firms, healthcare facilities, and healthcare providers make intelligent decisions today announces the launch of Locumpedia Board, the first completely free job board for the locum tenens community with no limits.

Registration is now open to any employer seeking locum tenens coverage, including locum tenens staffing agencies, hospitals, management groups, solo practices, and virtually any other type of healthcare employer. As the first locum tenens job board not owned by a staffing agency, Locumpedia Board allows employers to post unlimited jobs for free, and candidate leads are not accessible by any third parties.

Why Should Locum Tenens Staffing Agencies Register?

All Locumpedia Board features will remain free in perpetuity. Employers can easily mass-import their locum tenens opportunities at no charge by providing a job feed in CSV or XML format.

Low-cost sponsorship opportunities will be introduced soon for employers who desire extra visibility on what Locumpedia founder Cory Kleinschmidt predicts will become the industry’s dominant job board in a few years.

“Our board already offers several competitive advantages over other job sites,” Kleinschmidt says. “No other board offers unlimited free job posting, free job imports, and unrestricted candidate search. The other major locum tenens job board is owned by a staffing agency, which is a turnoff for many agencies that compete with them.”

In addition to co-creating the LocumTenens.com job board, Kleinschmidt also co-created CRNAJobs.com and MDSearch in the early 2000s and managed digital strategy for all three boards and several other healthcare organizations technology companies. The former PR director for LocumTenens.com, Billie Wickstrom, is now the news director for Locumpedia.

As a newly launched platform, Kleinschmidt notes that rapidly gaining candidate registrations will be crucial to the growth of Locumpedia Board. Locumpedia plans an aggressive digital marketing campaign and outreach targeting locum tenens providers across the country shortly after launch.

“Thanks to our team’s uniquely qualified background, we understand that a job board isn’t much use to employers if there aren’t candidates viewing and responding to jobs. And candidates don’t usually stumble upon a new board; they have to be exposed to it, and they need to understand why it’s worth their time to register,” he said.

In the next 60 days, Locumpedia plans to introduce functionality allowing employers to search candidate profiles, download CV files, message candidates securely, and create candidate email alerts to be notified when providers register. For now, the emphasis will be on acquiring at least 10,000 locum tenens opportunities.

Why Should Locum Tenens Providers Register?

By offering free mass job imports and removing competitive barriers that can cause staffing agencies to think twice before posting to a “free” job site, Locumpedia expects to attract more jobs than any other locum tenens marketplace.

“Many staffing agencies are understandably reluctant to post their jobs on a job board that a competing staffing agency owns since the job board operator technically owns the data posted. That hesitation won’t be a factor on Locumpedia,” Kleinschmidt stated.

Another feature that sets Locumpedia apart is the ability for providers to post reviews of any locum tenens staffing agency for which they’ve worked, whether or not the agency is registered to post jobs on Locumpedia. Providers won’t find this feature on any other site, let alone a competing job board. Registered candidates can now post reviews of agencies for which they’ve previously worked. These shared experiences will help locum tenens providers get a sense of the agency’s customer service and the kinds of assignments and facilities they represent.

In addition, Locumpedia plans to introduce several exciting innovations that other job boards don’t offer in keeping with its mission to evolve into the locum tenens industry’s first true platform.

As Locumpedia founder Kleinschmidt teases, “Stay tuned for many more feature upgrades for employers, and especially, candidates. Job boards today are largely stuck in the past. Established boards have little incentive to build something truly new because any change to their business model could imperil their profitability. We’re starting with a blank slate and asking ourselves what a locum tenens platform should look like in 2022.”

A Growing Platform

Locumpedia Board marks the fourth major product launch by the company since its debut in summer 2020 when Locumpedia News launched at the outset of a global pandemic. Locumpedia News is the only online locum tenens magazine covering topics of interest to staffing agencies, direct employers, and locum tenens providers.

In fall 2020, Locumpedia Directory debuted. The directory consists of the most complete source of information about staffing agencies that provide locum tenens coverage to healthcare facilities.

In summer 2021, Locumpedia Search was unveiled in beta as the first web search engine for locum tenens jobs posted on agency websites. A simple keyword search such as “hospitalist georgia” returns job search results from a wide array of staffing agency websites.

Locumpedia Board launched in February 2022, and many more exciting product launches are expected later this year and in early 2023.
