At Aspen Healthcare, we want to attract, recruit and retain the best possible candidates. Recruiting and selecting staff is one of the most important activities that we carry out to ensure high quality patient care.

We have a fair, accessible and inclusive recruitment process. It is important that you get an opportunity to showcase your skills, knowledge and potential. We want to find out how you could make a difference in our Head Office or one of our eight award-winning hospitals and clinics.

Aspen Healthcare encourages applications from a diverse and wide pool of candidates. We then select the candidate with the most appropriate skills, knowledge, experience and qualifications for the role. Our Human Resources (HR) team are trained to follow legal and best practice guidance.

Overview of Aspen Healthcare’s recruitment process

This flowchart explains the five main stages in Aspen Healthcare’s recruitment process:

Stage 1Submitting your job application form

To apply for a role at one of our Aspen Healthcare sites, you need to complete an application form. You can download the application form on our Aspen Healthcare careers website and email your completed form to the person specified in the job advert. Alternatively, you can submit an online application form through our Aspen Healthcare careers website.

Before you submit your application, we recommend that you read the full job description and person specification. These documents describe the purpose of the role and the main duties involved. They also specify the education, experience, knowledge, skills and qualities that we consider essential or desirable.

Your application should include your contact details and, if possible, a CV.

The application form includes an Equal Opportunity Recruitment Monitoring Form. This form is removed before the hiring manager reviews your application.

Stage 2Hearing from us

If your application is of interest, our HR team will contact you after the closing date for the job vacancy. In some cases, we may contact you before the closing date.

Stage 3Interview and assessment

If you are shortlisted for the role, our HR team will arrange an interview for you and possibly an assessment.

The purpose of an interview is to find out more about your skills, work experience, qualifications, ambitions and personal qualities. This is an opportunity for you to highlight your strengths and convince us that you are the most suitable candidate for the role. An interview is a two-way process. We encourage you to ask questions and get the information that you need about working at Aspen Healthcare.

We sometimes arrange a panel interview, so that a range of people can assess your skills. For some roles, you may be asked to give a short presentation at your interview or complete an online assessment. Our HR team clearly explain in advance what is required.

The interview panel need to check documents confirming your identity and right to work in the UK.

We aim to make our recruitment process fair, accessible and inclusive for candidates with a disability. If you need us to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to the interview and assessment or any other stage of the recruitment process, please let us know. An example would be holding your interview on the ground floor if you use a wheelchair.

Stage 4Finding out whether your job application has been successful

During your interview, we explain when you will be told the outcome of your application.

If your application is successful, we will telephone you and make you a verbal offer of employment. This is subject to satisfactory pre-employment checks. Our HR team then send you a written offer letter, employment contract with your agreed start date and other documents.

We inform you by telephone or email if your application is unsuccessful on this occasion. Where possible, a member of the interview panel gives you constructive feedback if requested.

Stage 5Pre-employment checks and welcoming you to Aspen Healthcare

If you accept a job offer with Aspen Healthcare, our HR team will contact you. They will discuss getting two references and carrying out any other pre-employment checks. These include Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks if applicable and a work health assessment. You should be able to provide evidence of all professional qualifications needed for your role.

We ask you to complete a starter form and sign your job description and person specification. Our HR team explain the benefits and rewards of working at Aspen Healthcare, and the statutory and mandatory training associated with your role. They confirm your start date and time, and can help with any questions.

After this, we look forward to welcoming you to Aspen Healthcare. When you join us, we arrange:

  • a tailored induction programme to help you become familiar with the role, department and site where you work
  • access to an eLearning platform to complete the statutory and mandatory training for your role in the healthcare industry
  • training opportunities under our ‘Investing in You’ learning and development programme
  • regular one-to-one meetings with your line manager and team meetings
  • an annual appraisal to discuss your objectives, training needs and career development

We hope that you have a rewarding and happy career with us!
