The Trust partnered with HCL as part of their international recruitment campaign, to provide nurses from outside of the EEA.
HCL suggested to the Trust that they approach their recruitment with a blended approach of pin ready/ OSCE ready nurses via regular Skype interviews.
HCL 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.
HCL 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 HCL to continue supporting candidates into the Trust and with ongoing aftercare.
