One in ten partner vacancies left unfilled for a year


As a partner, if I were recruiting, I would want to choose a new partner based on knowledge of how they work. I would not offer a partnership to an unknown person. Hence I would be looking for salaried first. We have traditionally done 6m salaried with confirmation as a partner at that point if all goes well and if the new doctor wanted it. We are a training practice and I very much want to recruit the right person where the appointment is right for all parties. There are reports of some partners earning less than their employees.
