The Recruitment Process

We have a variety of roles within Horder Healthcare and run a transparent recruitment process which varies according to the role.

Once you have found a role that matches your skill set, you can apply directly from the vacancy page. To see the list of current vacancies click here.

All you need to do at this stage is complete an application form. This ensures that everyone gives information in the same format and allows us to assess your application in a fair and consistent way. Please fill in the form as fully and accurately as possible.

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.

Should your application meet the shortlisting criteria you will be invited to attend an interview/ assessment. All interviews are competency based, meaning questions asked are designed to assess a candidate’s ability to successfully fulfil the role.

Finally, should you be offered and accept 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

  • Ensure 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 how you meet our requirements
  • Make sure you answer the questions; give us examples of what you have achieved in your previous roles
  • Check your spelling, does your personal statement read well?
  • Make sure your references are up to date
  • Read your application through thoroughly before pressing the ‘Apply Online’ button

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.

Workforce race equality standard
From 1st April 2016 to 31st March 2017, Horder Healthcare employed 5.4% people from a black and minority ethnicity *.

* Please note 39.4% of people chose not to disclose their ethnicity.

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

Although we do endeavour to communicate with all applicants, this is not always feasible. If you have not received a response within 14 days of the closing date, please accept that your application was unsuccessful. Due to the volume of applications received we are unable to provide feedback at shortlisting stage.

All correspondence regarding your application will be done via e-mail. 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.
