Recruitment Process

Frimley Health offers a range of positions and roles within the Trust that comes with exciting opportunities and benefits. When applying for these positions, it is important that you understand what happens through the process. There are several guidance points that we are able to provide, to better give candidates an understanding of what happens during the recruitment and onboarding process.

Applying

Along with being the best way to apply, you will find all our vacancies via the Our Vacancies tab. Under the drop-down menu, each discipline has its own blurb to read about and the vacancies relating to that discipline are found by clicking on the button down the right hand side.

Submitting an application should not be completed in a rush so that you give yourself the best chance of getting through to interview. Ensure that when submitting your application, that you include all relevant previous work experience. We advise that you proofread your work as many times as you see fit, to ensure that there are no grammatical issues and it reads how you envisaged. It can also be beneficial to have someone else ready your application and have them give you suggestions for improvement.

Once you have applied and the vacancy has closed, all applicants are short listed against the person specification. The line manager will then decide who will be offered an interview and who will not.

Interview and Assessment

As much as interviews and assessments are a chance for us to get to know you, this is also a chance for you to get to know us. This is the reason it is important to ask any questions you have about the role and the Trust and will help you get a better understanding of the environment you will be working in.

The Trust uses different assessment methods to assist with the selection of candidates. This may mean that you will have do complete one or more assessment as the selection process is dependant on the role you are applying for. Always make sure that you fully understand the process that you are being put through.

Onboarding

When you have been successful after applying for a position, you will then be contacted and sent a conditional offer. It is important to understand that an unconditional offer will only be sent when all relevant person checks and forms have been completed.
