JOIN THE PLATFORM
You will be taken to Trac Jobs, our online recruitment platform. You will need to create an account to apply for a role. By registering with Trac, you can make online applications, receive customised job alerts, and manage your interviews, appointments and DBS checks, all in one convenient place.
Complete your application form. You can expect to hear from us within 6 weeks of the closing date, if you have been shortlisted for interview. If you would like feedback, please email HNF-TR.Recruitment@nhs.net who will direct your query to the recruiting manager.
By using Trac updates, you can stay up to date on your application and similar roles.
Your interview will take place, including Values Based questions. Find out more here. If you are successful, you will receive a conditional offer letter by email which will include your new starter pack. This pack includes all the forms you need to complete and you can even fill them all in online to make it as easy as possible for you to return.
We will arrange an appointment with the recruitment team, where you can provide your ID to verify your identity and show them any qualification certificates that are relevant to your appointment.
Pre-employment checks are undertaken at this stage, including references, occupational health reports, professional memberships and DBS checks. When all checks relevant to your role are complete, your manager will be in touch to arrange a start date.
You will receive your unconditional letter and your contract of employment.
We will create your Electronic Staff Record (ESR), which is the HR and Payroll system used by the NHS. It records your personal and employment details and is used to process your pay. You will be able to access this system with your log in details once you have started in your role.
Your line manager will be in touch before your first day to make sure you know where to go on your first day.
Your induction will be carried out by your line manager. This is the perfect opportunity for you to familiarise yourself with the working environment, meet your teammates and generally begin to understand more about your role and the wider Trust.
YOUR TRUST ID
Pick up your ID badge and any relevant cards you require for your workplace, such as a Trust Smartcard, to access our clinical systems.
You will be invited to attend a welcome event on the first Monday of the month. This event will help you understand more about our Trust, our aims, ambitions and values. It will also provide information about staff benefits and schemes you have access to as a member of our team.
All eligible new starters will benefit from a probationary period when they start in their new role. During this time, you will receive support and guidance from your line manager, as well as the opportunity to explore your learning and development.
During this period, you can expect to be set some reasonable objectives to achieve during your first months with us, and you will have regular reviews as part of this process.
You can also expect to receive a list of mandatory training, which must be completed within one month of your start date. Most of this training can be completed online via ESR.
Within your first year with us, you will receive:
A probationary final review and annual appraisal.
Regular supervision with your line manager to discuss your progress.
The opportunity to share your views in the annual NHS National Staff Survey and our Staff, Friends and Family Test.
Have the chance to speak to our Executive Management team at Ask the Exec virtual sessions and have your say in Trust developments.
Your feedback is incredibly important to us. Please speak to your line manager or HR to discuss any issues or general comments about your application and further employment process.
