Our collaboration with Just R means that the heavy lifting of attraction is taken care of. They have built our employer brand and helped to promote our events throughout the duration of our long-term partnership, inviting screened candidates to come along to interviews. This process means that we are able to easily interview on the day and appoint to vacant positions across the Trust every three months.
