Tameside and Glossop boost their nursing teams, following a successful virtual recruitment event!

Our latest campaign for Tameside & Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust saw almost 200 enquiries made for posts within the Trust in just six weeks!

The digital campaign, which was targeting both qualified and student nurses, aimed to drive attendance at a Virtual Recruitment Event being hosted by the Trust. The Trust had previously hosted successful in-person recruitment events, but given the current global pandemic, social distancing rules dictated that the event needed to be hosted online.

Over the course of six weeks, Just R’s personalised campaign featured engaging, eye-catching content to make a persuasive case for prospective candidates to join Tameside & Glossop Integrated Care NHS FT. Every expression of interest was followed by a phone call managed by the Just R team, answering any queries and confirming attendance at the event.

We maximised the opportunity to build awareness and familiarity of the Trust by creating a fresh, impactful recruitment identity following work completed earlier this year. This new branding was featured across a carefully crafted, engaging webpage designed to provide potential candidates with more information about the Trust and opportunities there. Carefully curated written content and tailored imagery offered detailed information about the Trust, preceptorship, training and benefits, as well as registration details for the Virtual Recruitment event.

Campaign results

Appreciating the need to maximise budget and drive ROI, we edited existing video content for this specific campaign. The videos were viewed more than 11,000 times, and the campaign reached more than 149,205 people.

In just six weeks, Just R received and managed 196 enquiries. Every one of these people were contacted, pre-screened and booked onto the event by the Just R team.

While the campaign and Virtual Recruitment Event were designed to attract nurses, during the planning stages the Trust also expressed an interest in hearing from Health Care Assistants.

We accommodated this within the campaign planning and, as enquiries came in, separated this pipeline to create an interested bank of candidates to draw upon when the need arose, saving on time and expensive recruitment agency fees.

Always committed to going above and beyond, Just R is currently undertaking a final call-round to review and secure feedback from candidates, including those who were unable to attend the event or may be interested in exploring future opportunities.

Creating a recruitment pipeline

When the campaign drew to a close, it did so with an impressive database of interested parties – 38 qualified nurses and 37 student nurses.

The attendance to each of the specific parts of the online event were as follows:

  • 30 candidates attended the introduction webinar
  • 9 candidates attended the urgent care webinar
  • 11 candidates attended the Stamford Unit Webinar
  • 4 candidates attended the Medicine Webinar.

So far, 10 jobs have been offered and four are pending. There are also a number of interested student nurses, healthcare professionals from other disciplines, and nurses interested in other departments; we were able to pass on these individuals’ details to the Trust, creating a pipeline of future candidates as and when appropriate vacancies arise.

If your Trust could benefit from creating a pipeline of prospective employees, or from filling hard-to-recruit positions, Just R can create a bespoke, cost effective and efficient campaign to suit your needs - get in touch today:
