Recruitment and Programmes
Deliver recruitment systems in accordance with national processes and timelines, ensuring a high fill rate of trainee doctor posts and training/service coverage for hospital trusts and general practices.
Create and maintain accurate trainee doctor and training post records on our computer system and monitor trainees throughout their training programmes, whilst working to local and national procedures/policies.
This includes Foundation, General Practice, Public Health, Secondary Care, Dental and Academic trainees/programmes within the East Midlands. We also act as national recruitment lead for a number of specialties, including Public Health.

By recruiting trainee doctors and monitoring them throughout their training in the East Midlands, this helps to ensure there are sufficient numbers of doctors in training (consultants of the future) and that each hospital/General Practice has sufficient service coverage. This in turn, should contribute to an overall positive patient experience.
Processing applications for time out of training, transfers and to work less than full time can lead to the improvement of a trainee’s work life balance/management of personal commitments. Provision of placement information to trainees in line with the Code of Practice and as soon as is reasonably practicable, allows them to plan their work and home life accordingly.
Hospital Trusts, General Practices, GP Programme Managers/Directors and Training Programme Directors all rely on our team to provide information on recently recruited trainees. The data we hold on trainees and their placements needs to be accurate to ensure that the GMC annual trainee survey is completed by all current trainees without issue.
We carefully manage a nationally allocated budget for the delivery of recruitment and programmes in the East Midlands, ensuring value for money. We also continuously review and streamline local processes and procedures, helping us to deliver a consistently efficient service.
