An experienced director, Rachael Bagshaw founded Just R after learning of the NHS’ £3.2bn annual spend on temporary agency staff and its impact on retention, culture and patient safety.

It was clear to Rachael that the traditional NHS recruitment model was broken and a new solution was needed. So, utilising her 15 years’ business development experience, she built a team with the knowledge and skills to help the NHS do things differently.

We work with NHS Trusts and healthcare organisations to create and deliver innovative, digital attraction strategies. Our campaigns reach passive applicants instead of relying on active candidates found through job boards. Providing Trusts with the tools to deliver more effective workforce planning, our digital strategies help limit the over-reliance on temporary agency staff.

"We have managed to attract Nurses to Norwich who didn’t even know the city existed. The service is incredibly cost efficient, especially when you consider the reach of our campaigns. It feels like Just R are an extension to the recruitment team."
Helen Dove | Former Recruitment Manager | Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
"The response has been amazing. We are thoroughly impressed by the results! We have an advert which had rolled over three times with no applicants and we now have interviews, and they are not just local applicants."
Craig Olley, Community Team Manager
Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust
"We have built a strong relationship with Just R over the years, which stood us in good stead when we needed to recruit quickly during the pandemic. The Norfolk needs you campaign was very successful and looped in seamlessly with our wider recruitment efforts, allowing us to find and hire the people we needed, when we needed them."
NEIL FISHER | Recruitment Manager | Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS FT
“We were very impressed with the calibre of applicants and they showed compassion and care.”
