NHS Procurement in Partnership and Crown Commercial Service (CCS) are two public sector organisations that have come together in collaboration with the intent to explore the whole portfolio of health workforce services as part of a new Workforce Alliance.
Workforce Alliance are pleased to announce the International Recruitment framework to support the NHS and the public sector in their future recruitment strategies. The framework is in response to, and aligned with, recommendations set out for international recruitment in the NHS Long Term Plan and the NHS People Plan.
This is the first framework launched by the Workforce Alliance. Suppliers and customers will benefit from a strong partnership that brings together CCS, as the biggest public procurement organisation in the UK, combined with the extensive expertise and experience that NHS Procurement in Partnership has in the NHS.
The framework addresses the NHS need to increase international recruitment to fill existing vacancies. By offering a compliant route to market the framework for International Recruitment ensures compliance with NHS pre-employment standards, connecting trusts with dedicated staff working hard to treat people with care, compassion and dignity.
