Details of the Response

How many recruitment campaigns have you had?

725 in 12 months 1/4/13 to 31/3/14

 

How many of these campaigns had disabled applicants?

286 disabled applicants. The NHS Jobs reporting tool does not allow us to answer the number of campaigns

 

How many of these candidates were put through due to positive action/ discrimination?

76 candidates shortlisted

 

Percentage of users that went through to the first/ intermediary stages? (And were then rejected)

73%

 

How many got through to the final stages?

(And were then rejected) 67

 

How many were employed?

9

 

How many of these candidates were still in the job one-year later?

Not applicable as using last 9 months data as they will not have been in post for 1 year

 

Please note the following:

The data covers 9 months (July 2013 – March 2014) as we can’t easily report on anything earlier than this, since the national move to the NHS Jobs 2 in July 2013.

The last question asks if any of the successful candidates are still in post after 12 months; the report which was run resulted in data to March 2014 therefore none of the candidates could have been in post for 12 months as the earliest start on the system ‘NHS Jobs 2’ was after July 2013.
