NHS Jobs

We manage and develop NHS Jobs. This is the official online recruitment service for the NHS in England and Wales.

Thousands of healthcare organisations use the NHS Jobs employer’s website to manage their recruitment process - from advertising a vacancy through to scheduling interviews and recording pre-employment checks.

NHS Jobs' vision is to help employers get the right people into the right NHS roles every time, and deliver a great experience for candidates and employers.

There are over 11 million candidates registered to use the NHS Jobs website. This lets jobseekers:

  • search and apply for vacancies
  • save custom searches
  • save previous applications
  • receive job alerts by email

It is the biggest marketplace for health jobs in the UK. In 2020, there were:

  • 845,000 new jobseeker accounts created
  • 300,000 job adverts published
  • 4.7 million job applications submitted

The new NHS Jobs service

We are developing a new NHS Jobs service. This will have all the features of the current service but with improvements to meet the needs of recruiters and candidates now and in the future. All improvements are being guided by user feedback provided in focus groups, interviews, pop-up testing, and surveys.

The new NHS Jobs service is expected to launch in 2021. Healthcare organisations will then transition to the new service in a phased approach.

The NHSBSA Optimisation Team are supporting organisations in making the transition. So far, 5,020 organisations have gone live with the new NHS Jobs service.
