How jobseekers can find your advert

Jobseekers will be able to search for vacancies using the current NHS Jobs service. Vacancies uploaded in the new NHS Jobs service will continue to appear in search results as normal.

If a jobseeker decides to apply for one of your roles, they’ll be automatically directed to the new NHS Jobs service to apply.

The two sites will run alongside each other and this will not affect your ability to recruit.

The NHS Jobs team has automated the two systems. This means once a vacancy is created it is available on both versions of the system.
