We’ve worked closely with NHS organisations to understand and deliver against their requirements – resulting in an intuitive, functionality-rich applicant tracking system that integrates effectively with a range of complimentary NHS technical partners.

This is Jobtrain for the NHS - a video overview of key features in the Jobtrain ATS.


We’ve listened carefully to the needs of NHS recruiting teams and seamlessly integrated our applicant tracking system with NHS Jobs and the NHS Electronic Staff Record (ESR). These integrations facilitate, for the first time, the seamless and ‘end to end’ management of candidates from application through to offer and onboarding for NHS organisations. Posting, managing, and approving a vacancy couldn’t be simpler. We’ve engineered our system to cut down on typical administration by up to 50%.

to your recruitment processes

Our ATS is available to purchase through G-Cloud and your usual tender procurement services.

Are you losing new hires because of a lack of onboarding features? From doctors and nurses, to clerical officers and cleaners, when final interviews are complete and you’ve found your perfect candidate, you want to bring them on board as quickly as possible. Our recruitment software has all the features you need to make this happen.

Speed up your onboarding

Take up references, onboard your candidates and keep them engaged until their first day with our Onboarding and Welcome Hub features. New hires will be raring to go ahead of their first day. Welcoming the perfect candidate has never been easier.


The NHS recruits a large number of roles which can often be very similar, but are for different locations and areas of specialism. Perhaps you have a nursing campaign where candidates will have preferences like children’s services, or a location such as one of your hospitals. 

Candidates can mark their preferred choices at the point of application and recruiters can use this information to filter based on these preferences. This aids the task of shortlisting on volume campaigns (or often called Generic, Cohort, or even Bulk campaigns). This can heavily streamline the shortlisting and interview processes, and improve your candidate experience tenfold!

Discussion Paper - Making the NHS Workforce Plan a Reality


Compliance and DBS checks can be overwhelming during recruitment drives – especially with key workers! The regulations of the CQC, the GMC and the NMC are regularly changing, so you need a process that is up to date. Our applicant tracking system can do just this.

Make compliance checks easy

From our recruitment system, candidates can be registered for new Online Disclosure applications. We integrate with First Advantage – the specialist DBS and compliance checking provider. This allows you to carry out crucially important checking online, direct from within our applicant tracking system.

NHS Scotland is the second-largest sector employer in the UK, with over 163,000 employees. The implementation of our applicant tracking system was key to supporting their plan and the new recruitment system formed part of the process standardisation for NHS Scotland.

“We felt we needed to balance the capability of the system we chose with the capability to work effectively with NHSS in delivering our specific needs. The time to hire dropped by 31%. That saved nearly a month per hire!”

– Neil Warbrick – Programme Director

Our suite of assessment tools cover every aspect of assessing your potential hires. Create an unlimited number of tailored application and assessment forms for the wide variety of roles that make up your NHS Trust.

Application forms support a two-stage process so you only need to collect the necessary information at the first stage. Our assessment forms can cover everything from simple killer questions to sophisticated scored forms with images and timed questions.

Transform your assessment processes

For shortlisting, live video interviewing, telephone screening, and shortlisting forms are all available in our applicant tracking system. We offer collaborative panel and anonymous shortlisting too to remove unconscious bias from the selection process. Our recruiting software can even connect with your 3rd party online testing tools.
