NHS Blood and Transplant People First

Offer, contract and start date old

We will send your candidate a conditional offer letter outlining the main details of our offer and the pre-appointment checks which must be satisfactorily completed. 

When all pre-appointment checks have been satisfactorily completed, and you have agreed you wish to proceed with the appointment, you will need to contact your new starter to agree a start date.

Once you have notified your recruitment contact of the agreed start date we will issue your candidate with a final offer letter and contract of employment.  You can start to plan for their arrival.  Information on what to do next can be found on the new starter page. 

If your new starter is an existing employee you will need to complete a Change to Contractual Details form.   For external candidates, 2 weeks before their start date recruitment will send you the new starter form that must be completed with the new employee on their first day. 

All new employees will have a 6 month probationary period which ensures they have the opportunity to be fully trained in, and integrated into their new role and team, so that we have the best people with the right levels of skills and values.
