NHS Jobs are working with LinkedIn to fill COVID-19 roles in the NHS

NHS Jobs are working with LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network, to accelerate the recruitment of critical healthcare staff in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

NHS Jobs, the official online recruitment service for the NHS in England and Wales, are working with LinkedIn to promote COVID-19 specific roles as ‘urgent’ on LinkedIn’s platform. Anyone looking for one of these roles can find them by visiting the LinkedIn Jobs homepage or NHS Jobs.

With 28+ million people in the UK on LinkedIn, professionals with the right skills will be notified of relevant roles, helping to quickly match those that can help with critical healthcare roles.

David Roberts, Head of Service for NHS Jobs, said: “The NHS Jobs team have been working to make it easier for jobseekers to find roles relating to COVID-19 and have been implementing measures to increase the reach of NHS vacancies. We appreciate the support LinkedIn have provided at this time and it is great to be working together to support this national effort.”

Josh Graff, UK Country Manager at LinkedIn said: “The NHS has never needed more support than it does today. LinkedIn is proud to help NHS Jobs to accelerate the recruitment of healthcare staff and connect those with essential skills to critical roles. The COVID-19 pandemic is the greatest challenge of our time and we all have a role to play in supporting the nation’s response efforts.”
