Interviews

For most roles at our Trust you will need to sit a work related assessment and an interview. If youíre successful at interview you will be given a verbal conditional offer over the phone or in person by the lead interviewer. This will be followed by an email from your dedicated recruitment administrator with your conditional offer letter within three days.

New starters

All of our jobs are offered on a conditional basis pending employment checks. Following successful checks we will arrange a start date with you. We aim to confirm your start date within 30 days of you receiving your conditional offer letter.

Forms for new starters

Please complete and bring along the following forms on your first day.

Employment checks

Employment checks can include the following, depending on your role:
  • Proof of eligibility to work in the UK
  • Proof of your permanent address
  • Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance formerly CRB
  • Occupational health
  • Professional registration
  • References from previous employment or education

Following successful employment checks you will be sent an unconditional offer letter and your contract, usually a week before your start date.

DBS clearance

Please complete the following form and send it to your recruitment administrator when you have received a verbal conditional offer.
 
If you already hold DBS clearance you will be asked to show the original certificate to your recruitment administrator, otherwise you will be required to apply for a new one online via the link in your conditional offer letter.
