Staff Bank Recruitment

Joining NHSGGC Staff Bank

The process for recruiting both registered and non-registered nurses and midwives to NHS GGC Nursing and Midwifery Staff Bank follows the same robust recruitment and selection processes as required for substantive posts.

 To register with the Staff Bank there is both an internal and external process.

 Internal Applications

Nursing and Midwifery staff that hold a permanent post within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are permitted to join the Staff Bank through the internal application process, by virtue of existing employment, in a nursing role, with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.  This is on the basis that as bank workers they are fully supported by their substantive line manager in delivering high standards of care to patients within their bank role. Before completing and signing the reference managers acting as the individuals sponsor should consider the suitability of the individual to undertake bank work i.e. relevant mandatory training and competency.  

Bank workers planning to leave substantive employment within the organisation e.g. retirement and wish to continue to undertake bank shifts will no longer have sponsorship from their line manager and therefore no means for the bank nurse’s competence to be assessed within the responsibilities of the role and job description. 

Bank workers wishing to continue to undertake shifts when no longer substantively employed by NHS GGC will undergo a reassessment process to transfer managerial responsibility to Staff Bank Nurse Management. It is important that the bank worker and their line manager inform the Staff Bank service of their intention to leave their substantive post at the earliest opportunity to allow the reassessment process which entails Occupational Health check, PVG assessment, mandatory training update and a satisfactory reference. NHSGGC Staff Bank advise they are notified a minimum of 3 months in advance of leaving.

 Please read the guidance document before completing the internal application.
