Onboarding your organisation to the new NHS Jobs service

Your organisation needs to be fully onboarded to the new NHS Jobs Service by 31 October 2022. This is to allow for outstanding recruitment activity to complete before the expiry of the existing contract in January 2023.

Working with the support of DHSC, senior sponsors and other key stakeholders, including NHSE&I, our commitment is to minimise the impact to users, whilst also ensuring we complete onboarding in time to exit the current service contract.

The more organisations that onboard close to the October deadline, the greater the risk of delays and disruption. Therefore, we need your support so that we can stagger the onboarding process and make the transition as smooth as possible for you.

We have been migrating organisations to the new NHS Jobs platform for the last two years with over 6,600 already successfully onboarded. Having started with General Practices, progressing through organisations using third party Applicant Tracking Systems, through to Local Authorities, Charities, and Health Boards. We are now working in partnership with larger Trusts and CCGs with complex recruitment and integration needs to migrate their recruitment operations onto the new NHS Jobs.  

Developed internally by the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA), NHS Jobs is the official online recruitment service for the NHS in England and Wales. It is free at the point of delivery. 

The new service has new features and enhancements that have been implemented based on user feedback. From job posting, to onboarding successful applicants, employers can now manage the full recruitment life cycle in the new service.

Be assured that you will be fully supported through the transition process. You and your recruitment teams will receive full training to allow you to be confident in using the new service. Feedback from organisations that have already transitioned has been excellent and our team are always on hand to help.

To find out when your organisation will be onboarded to the new NHS Jobs, or to ask us any questions about the transfer, email the Optimisation Team at

We have also produced a development roadmap and a new brochure to showcase all the benefits of the new service for organisations.
