Catch The JobTrain

A new national recruitment system, known as Job Train, will be arriving in the autumn, providing a platform which makes recruitment easier for both candidates and hiring managers.

Replacing the current NHS Forth Valley recruitment system, it will help NHS Scotland promote job opportunities through a more dynamic employer profile at local, national and international levels.

Those responsible for hiring will be able to manage their vacancies online, see real time interest in vacancies, draw up a shortlist and process candidates online. Candidates will be able to track their applications through their own portals including responding to interview dates etc.

The system will also be accessible on mobile phones, tablets and iPads and will provide links to social media.

Training and awareness sessions for managers will be arranged as part of the implementation and details will be available on HR Connect.
