Recruiting to Hard to Fill Specialist Brain Nursing Roles

Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust faced a critical challenge in recruiting specialist Nurses for various wards within the brain directorate. Recognising the need for innovative solutions, they partnered with Just R to launch a dynamic digital attraction campaign.

Our Solution:

To help GOSH Brain Directorate achieve their goal of recruiting the specialist nurses they need, the strategy we developed was the creation of a campaign brand identity plus a high-impact digital advertising campaign, delivered over a 6 month period.


Campaign Focus:

The focus of the campaign was to reach, engage and attract the specialist nurses they need – mainly Band 6 Nurses and Band 5’s pursuing professional growth and development opportunities.
