Nurse recruitment boost for Stockport NHS Foundation Trust with 27 roles offered in a day following successful Just R social media campaign

Stockport NHS Foundation Trust saw a three-fold uplift in nurses attending their latest recruitment event, where they offered an incredible 21 new jobs to registered nurses. This fantastic result occurred after a month-long social media campaign with digital recruitment specialist Just R.

Just R created two separate campaigns for Stockport NHS Foundation Trust which featured across social media sites throughout January. One of the campaigns focused on recruiting nurses generally throughout the units, while the second looked specifically to recruit nurses to the Trust’s Emergency Department.

The digital recruitment campaign for Stockport linked prospective candidates to either an enquiry page, further information about the Trust and specific departments, or to register for the Trust’s next Recruitment Event which took place in February.

At the event, the team welcomed 45 interested parties who had registered through Just R’s campaign. Of these, an impressive 21 Registered Nurses were offered jobs, along with two international nurses who will complete their OSCE qualifications, and four non registered nurses. In total, the Trust offered 27 roles on the day.

Pauline Enstone, Assistant Chief Nurse, Recruitment and Retention, wanted to give a “huge thank you” to the Just R team. “We were absolutely delighted with the results! The senior staff that attended on the day were really pleased and it lifted the morale of the staff no end.”

She added that alongside the 27 job offers that were made to new staff, the Trust facilitated approximately six internal transfers at the event; so while these moves were not new staff, it helped considerably with the Trust’s retention rates.

As well as being a hugely successful day for the Trust, the event was also attended by other parties keen to recruit – the TA was able to sign up 9 recruits, while NHSP gained 10 staff, which Pauline Enstone described as ‘a real bonus’.
