Build Your Career with Barton Associates!

The Industry

Locum tenens, a Latin term meaning “holding the place,” is a $4.1 billion industry that is projected to reach $6.2 billion in the next 5 years. The U.S. is currently facing a severe and growing physician shortage. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) predicts this shortage will skyrocket from 40,800 to 104,900 doctors by 2030.

Our company works with travelling physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and dentists to place them on short- and long-term assignments in hospitals, urgent care clinics, and other healthcare facilities and companies nationwide. The increasing demand for healthcare professionals has led to incredible growth for the locum tenens industry, placing Barton Associates and its employees in an excellent position for the next decade and beyond!

The Company

Barton Associates entered this competitive market in 2001, opening its first office on the North Shore of Massachusetts. As the industry continues its rapid growth path, Barton Associates is poised to grow along with it. Since its founding, the company has grown to over 800 employees in 10 offices across 7 states (Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Florida, Texas, Nevada, and Arizona) with more on the horizon.

The Culture

Here at Barton, we have adopted a “work hard – grow fast!” philosophy that encourages our employees to be competitive and persistent to achieve immense success at a rapid pace. Although our primary objective is staffing, our second-highest priority is training. Our world-class training program allows highly-motivated, entry-level talent to walk through our doors with little-to-no background in healthcare or staffing and succeed based on the hard work they put forth. We also have several management training programs in place for individuals interested in taking on a leadership role, with many seeing their first promotion in as little as 8-10 months.

Though all of our business is done on the phone, our sales and recruiting teams are constantly working together to match providers with healthcare facilities quickly and efficiently. Each of our offices features a wide-open sales floor conducive to the collaboration necessary to achieve success in this rapidly-expanding industry.

The Opportunity 

We are hiring for two entry-level sales roles in all ten of our offices. Recruiters/Staffing Specialists work with the healthcare providers, while Account Managers work with the healthcare facilities, and together the two sides of the business complete assignments based on the provider’s interests and the facility’s needs. These roles offer a competitive base salary, uncapped commissions, industry-leading incentive programs, and a comprehensive benefits package.

Though we are currently in the process of interviewing December grads, we will soon begin scheduling interviews for students graduating in May as well, so it’s never too early to apply! We encourage anyone interested in these roles to visit our website, where we feature employee testimonials, office photos and videos, and a page dedicated to students and new graduates.
