Revolutionising Nurse Recruitment for Great Ormond Street Hospital

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 achieve their goal of recruiting the specialist nurses they need, the strategy we developed was a high-impact digital advertising campaign, delivered over a 6 month period to reach, engage and attract the nurses they need.

Collaborating closely with the GOSH brain team we developed a highly identifiable campaign identity which is both recognisable as GOSH but also clearly attached to the brain team. This identity is used along with images and videos of the Gosh brain team to bring the campaign to life across social media.

A key element of all Just R campaigns is the conversion process, workers today are no longer prepared to complete onerous application forms; it is therefore essential to make the process simple and quick. We therefore direct to online landing pages where they can swiftly express their interest. Then leverage Just R’s client engagement service, we promptly reach out to these candidates, encouraging them to take the next step and apply.
