The Recruitment Service

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s staff are our most valuable resource. By ensuring we have  good recruitment practice that will  make a significant contribution to ensuring we promotes a culture of person-centred care, placing the patient at the heart of everything we do.

We are committed to attracting the highest calibre of job applicants through a fair and consistent recruitment process, treating all our candidates fairly to ensure we recruit the best person for each vacancy.

We endeavour to ensure that we do not discriminate during any stage of the recruitment process and in particular comply with the Equality Act 2010 which makes it illegal to discriminate against protected characteristics i.e.  age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation. 

We also ensure personal information is removed from application forms prior to short listing and Equal Opportunities information is used for monitoring purposes only.  We also ensure that objective selection criteria are used, to ensure that appointments are made on merit. No one will be disadvantaged by recruitment and selection methods that cannot be objectively justified as reasonable.

The recruitment and selection of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde staff is the responsibility of our managers (Hiring Managers). 

Our Recruitment Service aims to ensure NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde hiring managers are supported to provide an effective, consistent and timely approach in carrying out recruitment  and selection processes.  By working closely with our Recruitment Team hiring managers can be assured that they are operating within current employment legislation, best practice and most importantly they make safe recruitment decisions .

The Recruitment Service is committed to:

  • Ensuring Hiring managers have access to a clear and robust framework of  processes and procedures  which underpin each stage the recruitment and selection of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde staff
  • Ensuring we provide a high quality recruitment administration and guidance service which promotes best practice within employment legislation and meets the needs of all NHS clinical and non clinical staffing groups and grades
  • Ensuring we appoint the best candidate for each post
  • Ensuring we make available internally and externally to NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde the full range of career opportunities to attract and hire the very best candidates from a diverse, wide and skilled pool of job applicants.
