Stockport NHS Foundation Trust (SNHSFT) faced a critical challenge in recruiting and retaining nurses, prompting them to seek a cost-effective solution to address staffing shortages. As long-term partners, we have supported Stockport over the last 5 years, developing their employer brand and assisting in driving values aligned candidates to their recruitment events.

In collaboration with the Trust, we executed a high-impact digital marketing campaign, directing potential candidates to recruitment events every 12 weeks.

The project resulted in the successful hiring of 43 nurses, leading to significant savings of £428,000 compared to alternative, temporary recruitment methods.

This translates to an impressive 386% return on investment, not even considering the savings made on the hire of 75 HCSW.

Our additional contributions, which includes developing their careers-focused website and employer brand, becomes added value once the contract cost is met.

Stockport NHS Foundation Trust’s strategic recruitment campaign highlights the importance of prioritising cost-effective, sustainable strategies when hiring skilled healthcare professionals.
