Case Study: Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – Permanent Staffing

The Borough was looking to recruit experienced social workers to the remaining vacancies in their Assessment, Intervention and Looked after Children’s teams.

The Challenge:

The Trust partnered with Instant Healthcare UK as part of their international recruitment campaign, to provide nurses from outside of the EEA.

Campaign Plan

Instant Healthcare UK suggested to the Trust that they approach their recruitment with a blended approach of pin ready/ OSCE ready nurses via regular Skype interviews.

Instant Healthcare UK have been a key element to our success in recruiting international nurses to our Trust. They are extremely professional and have provided us with a consistent pipeline of excellent candidates. Their support, advice and flexible approach to fit within our recruitment processes has been invaluable.

The Results

Instant Healthcare UK worked with key stakeholders at the Trust to support 12 Skype events with an average of six interviews per event. 60 candidates have been offered to date, 25 of whom have landed.
All 25 candidates have passed their OSCE and received their PIN. There are an additional 23 candidates still in process, 15 of whom have a decision letter and two of whom have their NMC PIN.
Following a break in interviews to manage the incoming pipeline, the Trust have now re-started interviews and are working with Instant Healthcare UK to continue supporting candidates into the Trust and with ongoing aftercare.
