Our recruitment process

We want you to have a positive application experience with us so we have developed a transparent process which varies according to the type of role. You can apply for a role directly from the vacancy page.

All you need to do at this stage is complete an application form, ensuring you give us as much accurate information as you can. This ensures that everyone gives information in the same format and allows us to assess your application in a fair and consistent way.

If you have a disability and as a result are unable to complete the online application form, please contact the HR department on 01892 600822 or email recruitment@horder.co.uk to discuss alternative arrangements.

If your application form has been successful you will be invited to attend an interview/ assessment. All interviews are competency based, which means we will ask you questions which are designed to assess your skills and see how successfully they will fulfill the role.

If you are offered the role, a number of pre-employment checks will be completed prior to you joining the Horder Healthcare team.

Tips on filling in your application form

  • Make sure that you have read the application form and understand what information we need
  • Read the Job Description and Personal Specification carefully; you should be able to tell us why your skills make you the best candidate for the role.
  • Make sure you answer the questions; give us examples of what you have achieved in your previous roles
  • Check your spelling and grammar. Does your personal statement read well?
  • Make sure your references are up to date
  • Read your application through thoroughly

Other information

We aim to be an equal opportunity employer and are determined to ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, age, disability, religion, belief, sexual orientation, marital status, or race, or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justifiable.

Adverts may close earlier than the published closing date if sufficient applications are received.

Although we always do our best to communicate with all applicants, unfortunately sometimes this is not possible. If you have not received a response within 14 days of the closing date, please understand that on this occasion your application was unsuccessful. Due to the large volume of applications we receive we are sadly unable to provide feedback at short listing stage.

Please note that all correspondence regarding your application will be done via e-mail so please ensure that you check your e-mails regularly, including your Inbox Spam folder. To ensure that potential recruitment checks are not delayed, please provide an e-mail address for all references.

All posts are subject to a satisfactory disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly the Criminal Records Bureau). Having a criminal record will not automatically restrict you from working at Horder Healthcare. Where the post is exempt under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 you must disclose any DBS entries at application stage.

Disclosures will be dealt with confidentially and a risk assessment will be carried out taking into consideration the details of the entry and the post applied for.
