About NHS Jobs

NHS Jobs is the dedicated online recruitment service for the NHS. Every NHS trust in England and Wales advertises job opportunities with NHS Jobs, resulting in around 20,000 opportunities available every month.

NHS Jobs is the UK's leading online recruitment service. It attracts over 6 million web visits and receives applications from more than 250,000 jobseekers every month. The service provides job seekers with access to vacancies across the NHS through a single portal, and provides employers with the tools and features they need to manage their recruitment processes effectively. For more information for jobseekers, including how to get the best from NHS Jobs, visit our 'Advice for jobseekers' section.

NHS Jobs has saved the NHS over 240 million since it was launched in 2003. The biggest savings have been made through reductions in recruitment advertising spend as trusts have reduced their reliance on traditional advertising channels; and through decreased administration costs as the use of online applications has grown. NHS Jobs also shares vacancy information directly with Jobcentre Plus, helping the NHS support employment in their local communities.

NHS Jobs is provided by NHS Employers and delivered under contract by Methods Consulting and Jobsite UK. NHS Employers represents trusts in England on workforce issues and helps employers to ensure the NHS is a place where people want to work. The NHS workforce is at the heart of quality patient care. NHS employers work with trusts to reflect their views and act on their behalf in four priority areas:

  • Pay and negotiations
  • Recruitment and planning the workforce
  • Health and productive workplaces
  • Employment policy and practice.

NHS Employers is part of the NHS Confederation. Further information is available from their website at www.nhsemployers.org.

Over 350 careers are available in the NHS. For further information on the opportunities available and the knowledge, skills, training and experience required to work in these different careers, including any support that may be available to help you train, please visit our sister website NHS Careers.

All NHS Jobs users, whether advertising or applying for vacancies, must follow our Acceptable Use Policy. Failure to do so may result in your registration with this website being revoked.

The majority of NHS Jobs web pages and some vacancy adverts are also available in Welsh. Where a Welsh language version of a page is available, click on 'Cymraeg' at the top of the page and the translated page will automatically appear.

Success stories

Returning to the NHS was made so easy
I qualified as a nurse many years ago but unfortunately had to give up my career and pin number (registration) in 2004 due to family commitments.
