Our approach to recruitment
We pride ourselves on providing a seamless recruitment process for anyone who is looking to join the trust, no matter what the job role, to become part of our successful team. Our process is designed to ensure a quick and easy way to find, apply and, if successful, be offered a job and join us here at the trust.
Our recruitment process
Online application: All of our jobs are advertised on our websites, NHS Jobs and other online platforms; to be available to the wider community and for ease when searching and applying for jobs.
Application review: Once you have submitted your application with us, you will hear from one of the recruitment admin team members, (after the closing date) with an update on your application.
Outcome update: If successful, you’ll receive notification and be invited to an interview with details of how to book your interview slot.
Invitation to interview: You’ll receive confirmation of your chosen interview date and time, complete with details of all documents that you will need to bring with you to your interview.
Interview: You’ll need to attend an interview during which you’ll complete an identity check.
Outcome update: You’ll receive an update on the outcome of your interview through a phone call from the hiring manager. This will either be a verbal offer or feedback on your unsuccessful application.
Conditional offer: If you’re successful, you’ll be issued with a conditional offer letter, based on the agreement with the hiring manager at interview and over the phone.
Pre-employment checks: Our dedicated recruitment administration team will begin the pre-employment checks which include all identification documents, your right to work, any professional registration, DBS, occupational health and reference checks.
Unconditional offer: With all pre-employment checks successfully passed, you will be issued with an unconditional offer letter, details regarding agreeing your start date and then your contract of employment.
Induction: On your first day you’ll meet with your new manager who will show you around, complete some further paperwork and welcome you to the trust.
