In line with the majority of NHS organisations in London, we do not pay travelling expenses for interviewees. However in exceptional cases we would consider reimbursing expenses but this must be agreed prior attending the interview by the Recruiting Manager.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Border Agency requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post.

From 19 July 2010 the Government have introduce an interim limit on the number of certificates of sponsorship employers can issue for Tier 2 sponsorship and therefore we will be unable to employ individuals under Tier 2 sponsorship once our limit has been reached. For further information please visit UK Border Agency website.

NEL CSU administer this account on behalf of CCG. After applying via NHS Jobs, your submitted application will be shared with the employing organisation.

If you are offered a job, information will also be transferred into the national NHS Electronic Staff Record (ESR) system and other secure, internal NHS workforce systems in order to support and manage your recruitment and employment within the organisation.
