What happens if I'm successful?

Find out what happens next when you're offered a job with us.

​Your job offer
If you have been successful at interview, the recruiting manager will usually contact you by phone to offer you the job – congratulations on getting this far!

The Trust's Resourcing Team will then email your conditional offer of employment through our recruitment system. If you do not receive your offer email within three days of receiving the call, please check your inbox to make sure it hasn't gone into your 'spam' or 'junk' folders. If you still can't see the email, contact our Resourcing Team on 01925 664 483.

Your identification appointment
Your offer email will ask you to book an appointment online to see a member of our Resourcing Team. This will be to check and validate:
  • your identity by proof of address and an approved identification document
  • your right to work in the UK
  • your qualifications and any professional registrations required for the role
This appointment needs to take place within three to five days of your offer being made to avoid any delays in you being able to start your new role.

Your conditional offer of employment will include a link which will outline the documents you need to provide. It's important to bring the right documents on the day, otherwise the team will be unable to complete your identification.

If you are finding it difficult to obtain proof of your address, you can:
  • visit your local bank or building society and ask them to print a bank statement which contains your name and address – please explain you need this for an employment check with the NHS and online bank statements are not acceptable as proof of address
  • visit your council and ask them to print a copy of your council tax statement, ensuring they stamp this to validate the date (all documents must be dated within three months)
Pre-employment checks
Your offer of employment is subject to the NHS Employment Check Standards which include: 
  • references to cover your last three years of employment – if you've also completed a qualification during this period, we'll also need an employment reference – where we are unable to gain sufficient references to cover a minimum three-year period, it may result in your offer of employment being withdrawn
  • qualifications – we will need original copies of any qualifications marked as 'essential' on the person specification within the job description for the role you applied for
  • professional registration – we will need to see an original copy of your professional registration membership 
  • your right to work in the UK – we will require original proof of your right to work within the UK
  • identification – we will need to see an approved form of photo identification and proof of address
  • occupational health – you will need to complete a health assessment and, if you are working in a clinical area, you'll need to provide evidence of your immunisations and vaccinations
Your start date
Once you have successfully completed your pre-employment checks, our Resourcing Team will be in touch to arrange a start date and agree this with your new line manager. For nursing and healthcare assistant posts on inpatient mental health units, this will need to align with our next control and restraint course, which is mandatory.

If you have any questions about any of the above, please contact our Resourcing Team on 01925 664 483 and most importantly, good luck in your new role at North West Boroughs Healthcare!
