Join the Bank

The Bank is the name we use for our temporary staffing service, and is like an internal recruitment agency. It allows to keep our services running smoothly as we’re able to provide cover for gaps in staffing from a ‘bank’ of people registered with us.

Within Nottinghamshire Healthcare, our bank team provide cover to a variety of teams both clinical and non-clinical, in order to ensure that our services are fully staffed and operating to the best that they can be. They are an essential part of the Trust, providing short notice cover for absences, picking up additional shifts during busy periods and more. The Bank is made up of a mixture of substantive staff members who want to work extra shifts, or external people who only work bank shifts. These staff play a vital role in ensuring high standards of patient care are maintained, meaning these temporary workers are highly valued.
