Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) provides a range of community health, mental health and learning disability services for people of all ages.

The first is a 12 month contract for someone to support our new International Recruitment programme. This is a new area of work to the Trust, and we are looking for someone to handle all aspects of the recruitment process, as well as the administration of various tasks that are unique to international nurses such as finding them somewhere to live. For this role you will be well organised, able to adapt existing processes to this new field of work and have excellent communication skills to help you manage the challenges that the programme will bring.

The salary bracket for this role is Band 3.

Role 2 – Recruitment Officer to join the Covid Workforce Bureau (6 month contract). Home based. Do not need to be able to drive/have own transport.

The second opportunity is 6 month contract to support our Workforce Bureau Team. This team exclusively concentrates on recruiting roles to support the Covid Vaccination programme in our area. This role will focus on recruitment and conducting all pre-employment checks of successful candidates, providing a positive candidate experience, helping to reduce the time to hire and ensuring that everything the role is responsible for is done to enable the workers we supply to do their role effectively. This includes issuing contracts and payroll documentation, requesting training and ID badges and owning processes that relate to your candidates through to completion.

The salary bracket for this role is Band 3.

The Experience you’ll need:

  • Experience of working in a recruitment or onboarding environment would be beneficial.
    • Please note, a large portion of these roles will involve focusing on processing recruitment checks for successful candidates, so you’ll need to be comfortable with doing this in an efficient manner.

The skills you’ll need:

  • You’ll need to be self-motivated and self-managed. This is increasingly more important with us working remotely at the moment.
  • Great communication skills – you’ll need to be able to negotiate, persuade and influence your stakeholders to help guide them through the recruitment process.
  • Organisation skills. You’ll need to be able to manage different priorities and workloads. For example, a case load of candidates who need all their recruitment checks completing, you will need to manage communication with them and other stakeholders and provide a joined up service to end users.
  • Solutions focused. With the role having a wide scope, you’ll be faced with some hurdles that you’ll need to overcome with a positive mind-set.

If you like the sound of what you’ve read, please have a read of the job descriptions - one job description is in the job description link, the other in the person specification link, as these have the full details of the role. Then please apply and we’ll be in touch.

Agencies – appreciate times are tough right now but we are recruiting direct on these roles.

We are committed to providing the best care that we can to our patients, and so some of our roles involve a Maths and English assessment. Where this is so, details will be shared with you as part of the recruitment process.

Details of our benefits, pledge and other important information about the application process, and working for us is contained in the documents linked to our advert.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, rosters are set in advance at a team level and you will be joining an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date. We will consider requests to vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.

To make the most of your application, we may consider successful applicants for vacancies for the same post in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of every new member of staff (excluding medical and dental staff) to a post is subject to a 6 month probationary period, details of which are in our Probation Policy.

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our service users. To this end we actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups, including members of our black and minority ethnic communities. All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.

For all jobs the cost of undertaking a DBS disclosure at the required level will be met by the individual. This will be deducted from salary following commencement.

Requests from applicants to work alternative hours to those advertised may be considered.

Applicants who are currently ‘at risk’ within the local NHS, and meeting essential criteria will be given preference for interview over any other candidates who may apply for this post.
