International recruitment toolkit

Globe showing Europe

We have produced an international recruitment toolkit designed to support NHS staff who are leading and delivering international recruitment. It aims to encourage and enable good practices and processes for the recruitment of staff across a wide range of professions.

You can use this resource to plan your approach to overseas recruitment activity for the first time, or to review the quality and efficiency of your existing practices and processes.

This toolkit is designed to support collaborative, effective and ethical international recruitment that provides value for money.

This resource has been commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care and produced by NHS Employers in collaboration with NHS England and NHS Improvement, and Health Education England. We would also like to give special thanks to the reference groups of employers, staff and stakeholders and the many other contributors from across the sector involved in developing this resource.
