NHS Jobs employer training sessions

These sessions are for employers using NHS Jobs to create and manage job vacancies and there are separate sessions for primary care employers and secondary care employers.

Training Needs Assessment

The NHS Jobs Training and Support team have developed a new Training Needs Assessment (TNA) in the form of a short online survey. The TNA can be completed by registered users who have identified gaps in their knowledge or experience of using the service. 

The TNA takes less than five minutes to complete. The information submitted will be reviewed and used to develop and schedule future training solutions to prioritise your training needs.

To share your training needs, please complete the NHS Jobs TNA survey.

Applicants needing help using NHS Jobs should look at Help and support for applicants section of the website.
