Nurse assessment process
We advertise all of our nursing vacancies on our website. To apply for our posts you need to submit an online application via our Trust website or NHS jobs. Please ensure you read the advert text fully as this may include an assessment date you will be required to attend, if shortlisted.
Your interview panel will comprise of senior members of staff from your preferred area and human resources. This will last between 30 to 45 minutes and you will be asked competency based questions which aim to allow you to demonstrate your skills and abilities.
If you are offered a post, you will then be contacted by recruitment with a conditional offer letter that outlines all the pre-employment checks that need to be completed prior to you starting. We aim to complete these checks within two weeks. The recruitment team will then discuss with you your available start date to match with the next available induction date, also liasing with the ward area.
Please note: if you are unsuccessful, you'd be given feedback on the day of areas to improve from our clinical practice facilitators.
