Our recruitment process

Our rigorous recruitment process means that we hire only the very best healthcare staff. We look for candidates to demonstrate their clinical knowledge, but also that they exhibit our core values of trust, empathy and expertise.

We've streamlined our recruitment process, fast-tracking a 5 day turnaround from application to working a shift, to offer immediate employment and support our clients in the national care crisis at this time. This process is entirely virtual so you can complete it from the comfort of home and we’ll support you every step of the way.

Online application form

It all starts with our easy-to-use online application form over on our careers hub. This form is quick, easy and secure. We ask for your contact details, previous work experience and contacts for references.

Following this, we will ask you for additional details such as your clothes size for our uniforms and to upload a photo for your ID badge.

Initial screening

We then review your application and make a judgement on your suitability for the role, based on your past experience, qualifications and your desire to care for service users. For nurses, we will confirm that you have a valid PIN. At this point, if we require further information, our Central Recruitment team will contact you. 

References and checks

If the screening stage is successful, we proceed to immediately contact your references, to allow for our fast-tracked recruitment process. It would be beneficial if you could let your referees know that we will discuss your application with them, so they can be available. We also carry out full DBS/PVG checks at this stage to ensure that you are able to work in a care setting.

Welcome Meeting

Pending successful referencing and checks, the next stage involves a Welcome Meeting with a member of our recruitment team, using a camera on a smart device. Our interview process is your opportunity to tell us all about past experience in care, your skills and qualifications and what your future goals are. Our recruitment teams are very friendly and the meeting will be more of an informal chat.

In the interview, we will assess your aptitude for the job whilst also seeing if you can tell us about scenarios in which you have demonstrated our core values:

  • Teamwork
  • Honesty
  • Inventive
  • Conscientious
  • Knowledgeable
  • Flexible
  • Listening 
  • Passionate.

We will also ask you to show us, using the camera of your smart device, your ID documents. Don't worry - all the requirements will be shared with you in advance of the meeting. If your interview goes well, you'll receive a verbal job offer.

Introductory training

Thanks to our investment in the digitalisation of our new starter training and induction materials, you can complete them from the comfort of home through our online learning platform.

Before you start with us, if you do not have a valid Moving and Handling certificate, you’ll need to complete those modules online. 

Welcome to Newcross

Once you've booked your first shift, we will send a Welcome Box straight to your door, complete with your ID badge, uniform and a selection of thoughtful items to support you on your journey with us. This is a quick, automated process so you can get to work straight away.
