Planning successful international recruitment -  a guide for employers

Women with documents

International recruitment is a legitimate option for some organisations as part of their wider workforce supply strategy,  and staff from outside of the UK continue to make a significant contribution to the NHS. 

We have produced a short guide on successful international recruitment that will help employers to plan and deliver a successful international recruitment campaign.  The guide covers many important considerations within the process, including timescales, use of agencies, ethical practices and professional registration. Simple checklists are also included for each of the different stages of recruitment.

It is crucial that employers understand how international recruitment can exist alongside and complement other solutions to workforce supply challenges.  For example, employers may want to access our website for information on other potential recruitment solutions, such as those offered by working in partnership with Jobcentre Plus and potential retention solutions, such as those offered by flexible retirement options.
