COVID-19 has paused overseas travel, but as international routes begin to reopen, NHS organisations are restarting their international recruitment to support their COVID-19 recovery plans.
It also remains a key priority to meet the government’s target of an additional 50,000 nurses working for the NHS by 2024/25. It is therefore important to consider your next steps on international recruitment.
This guidance is designed to complement our international recruitment toolkit which was published last year. It provides some simple steps you can take now to maintain relationships with overseas recruits whom you’ve offered posts to and continue to support overseas staff currently working in the UK.
