Working patterns
Working on the bank allows you to manage your own working patterns around your personal life – it is up to you to book yourself on to shifts. As a bank worker, you aren't required to work a set number of hours, so you don't have to accept a shift unless you want to. We just ask that you work at least one shift every six months to keep your staff bank membership active.
NHS discounts
As a bank worker you will have access to special offers and discounts through NHS discount websites.

NHS Pension scheme
You are also able to join the NHS pension scheme.

Recruitment to bank posts 
We hold temporary staff bank recruitment campaigns throughout the year. All our campaigns are advertised on our jobs site. You can also register on the site for alerts so you're notified as soon as we post a bank campaign suited to your skillset.

It's worth knowing that for some of the roles on our bank – healthcare assistant, administrator and receptionist and therapy assistant – you do not need to have clinical or healthcare experience. Job adverts and person specifications will provide full details about what is needed for each role.

Completing your bank application form
It's really important that you complete your bank application thoroughly, so look at the person specification and ensure you detail how you meet the essential and desirable criteria. If you are currently at university, you should detail all your relevant placements and any relevant healthcare or customer service experience too.

This is important as our shortlisting is completed anonymously, so we won't know your name or personal details. We will be assessing you based on your application only so make sure you spend as much time on this as you can. 

If you are successfully shortlisted, we will contact you through our recruitment system to set up an interview.

You will need to attend a values-based interview. You will also be asked some scenario-based questions relating to the area you've applied to work within.
