Shortlisting

All applications must be reviewed and your shortlisting finalised on-line through your NHS Jobs employer account.  As the recruiting manager you are able to review applications whilst the advert is live.  This means that you can review applications as and when they are received rather than waiting for the vacancy to close. 

There are a number of “How to” guides available which outline the process to follow on NHS Jobs – see below to access these guides.  You may also find it useful to review the Top Tips for Shortlisting.

If you are recruiting for a Donor Carer, Team Assistant or Donor Centre Administrator, please see section on Blood Donation Recruitment.

It is expected that shortlisting will be completed within 5 working days of the advert closing date to minimise delays.  If none of the applications submitted meet the essential criteria please discuss the next steps with your recruitment contact.

Checks for statutory registration (i.e. NMC, GMC, and HCPC) will be undertaken by your recruitment contact for all shortlisted candidates before they are invited to interview and again before an offer of employment is confirmed.

If you are advised you need a BAME panel member, please see the BAME Staff Details for Panel Meetings

All internal applicants who have not been shortlisted for interview can request feedback, however due to the number of applications received we are unable to provide feedback on shortlisting to external applicants. 

TIP - If you have any difficulties accessing NHS Jobs or you have been locked out of your account please speak to your recruitment contact who will be able to assist you with this. 

All information relating to applicants must be kept secure and only shared where there is a genuine need.
