How do I join?
If you are not currently employed by one of our client Trusts, you can register to join us online via the NHS Professionals website.
Registration follows a rigorous recruitment process that is fully compliant with NHS Employment Check Standards and can take a long time.
The length of time it will take depends on your availability to attend and complete the interview process, the time taken to receive your references and CRB disclosure. We need your help in working with us to keep this duration to a minimum.
