Earlier this year enhancements were applied to the interface between electronic staff records (ESR) and NHS Jobs. The enhancements provide changes to the transfer of vacancy and applicant information and also allow certain pre-employment check information to be updated in ESR from NHS Jobs and vice-versa.
How ESR and NHS Jobs are used
The basic process flow between ESR and NHS Jobs has been used by NHS organisations for a number of years and allows the transfer of information from ESR to the e-recruitment system and subsequently to the internet. Applicants can be short-listed in the e-recruitment system and their details then transferred to ESR. Supported by NHS Jobs since March 2014, an alternative process also exists by which a vacancy is first created in NHS Jobs, then in ESR and transferred to NHS Jobs.
The ESR central team and NHS Jobs recently published guidance to help users understand the changes to the interface between the two systems. Read more about what these changes mean and access handy screen shots to help you understand the enhanced functionality.
