Recruitment and Selection
In the period April 2013 to September 2013, the Recruitment team has assisted service managers with the recruitment and selection of 681 permanent and temporary staff in a variety of roles both clinical and non-clinical, with activity broken down in Table 1.
The recruitment team introduced a Payroll forms log, with which we are able to monitor payroll KPIs, expanding the use of IT to deliver enhanced client access to services, or reducing administration and costs to service users.
We are working more collaboratively within divisions, increasing manager’s understanding of workforce planning . The Recruitment team are producing KPI reporting and performance management data to reflect the value and quality of services provided to managers and to work to improve timelines particularly time to offer made and start date. For the latest report provided to managers please see Table 2.
In addition, the Recruitment team have assisted with the appointment of casual or sessional workers to cope with emergency staffing in situations such as Bed Escalation/Winter pressures and Flu vaccination.
Where we are having difficulties recruiting , for example in District Nursing, Occ Health, Clinical Researchers, the mid to long term plan is to re-profile some of the workforce through role re-design. This will enable us to deliver an appropriate service with suitable qualified professionals that are available in the employment market. This will include the development of extended nurse roles and providing a consultant -led service, using the WTE and budget for the current difficult to fill vacancies.
