The Recruitment Centre

If your application is shortlisted, you will be invited to attend an Recruitment Centre. This Recruitment Centre is intended to provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate how you would treat our patients and staff for whom we care, with the compassion, courtesy, dignity and respect they deserve.

Recruiting to Values

To ensure that we provide world-class patient care, UHCW recruits people that can demonstrate the Trust’s Values and Behaviours in their everyday life. Therefore, if you are invited to interview, you will be undertaking a Values Based Interview, which explores not only what you do but how and why you do it.

Before applying, we encourage you to review the Trust’s Values and Behaviours Framework and Values Based Recruitment Factsheet which can be accessed on the right side of this page under the job description.
