Joining Rapid Response

Our ‘Rapid Response’ recruitment process is simple, fast and outlined below:


Online application form - Complete a simple online application form

To start the application form, you will first need to ‘sign up’ with a valid email address.


Compliance check – Once you have submitted your application form, you will receive an email requesting evidence of your Right to Work, Proof of Address and Employment experience so we can verify your details.

The evidence we request will vary depending on whether you have worked in the last 12 months or not in the NHS or an appropriate healthcare setting. Please reply to the email with the requested documents. Photos of the documents will be accepted.

Here are some examples of some of the documentation we will accept:

  • Right to Work e.g. UK/EEA Passport or Valid Passport and Valid Visa
  • Employment / Care Experience e.g. Payslip / P45 / P60 showing your job healthcare job role or if you do not have an payslip then a copy of you Employment Contract or Care Certificate
  • If you are self-employed then a copy of your Tax Return will be sufficient
  • For students - Proof of University Course Enrolment Letter including current year of study. 
  • Proof of Address e.g. Bank / Mortgage statement (dated last 3 months), UK Full Driving Licence, P45/P60 or any document issued by a Government body (dated last 3 months)


Screening and selection - We will review your application, validate your evidence and process your application, notifying you by email once this has been done.


Additional Compliance and Training– If you are a registered candidate who hasn’t worked in a healthcare setting in the last 12 months or an unregistered candidate we will require you to complete some additional basic training, a DBS and a Declaration of Health assessment within 2 weeks.


Ready to work - You will receive an email with your login details to My:Bank - your shift booking platform.

To view available shifts, you will need to select your preferred NHS Trust (s). If you are unable to see any available shifts after selecting your preferred Trust (s), this may because there are no shifts currently available at the chosen Trust.
