The Application Process

Temporary Staffing Service - The Application Process - Introduction
The purpose of the Temporary Staff Service (known as the Temporary Bank) is to provide temporary cover to Whittington Health’s health centres, wards and departments as a result of staff shortages.  Our aim is to provide high quality health services through recruiting the right people.

You can submit an application through one of the relevant links provided.  Your application form is the only information that we have about you so please be as thorough as possible.  You should describe your work history and relevant experience, what your skills and abilities are, giving examples where possible.  It is worth noting that experience gained outside of paid employment may be equally relevant to your application.


Your application form will be assessed to see how your knowledge, skills and experience match against the person specification for the role. The shortlisting criteria is based on the Person Specification which accompanies each Job Description. If successfully shortlisted you will be invited to an interview. If you are unsuccessful at this stage we will let you know.


The interview panel is made up of at least two panel members who will be asking the same standard set of questions to each candidate. Additional questions may be asked based on your answers. Each member of the panel will take notes of your answers on a standard assessment sheet so that the reasons for their decision is clear, consistent and justified. You will be informed how and when you will be notified of the outcome.

Your invitation to join the Temporary Bank

If you are successful you will receive an offer letter.  Please follow the instructions on your offer letter carefully as our aim will be to progress your pre-employment checks as quickly as possible. Whittington Health’s employment checks are based on the six NHS Employment Standards that outline the type and level of checks that must be carried out when recruiting into the NHS. These checks include the right to work in the UK, Disclosure Barring Service and qualification checks
If you are unsuccessful you will be notified and verbal feedback will be provided if you request it.
