    (There is a requirement for all search and recruitment organisations to verify the identity of individuals, to confirm their right to work in the UK) http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2003/3319/pdfs/uksi_20033319_en.pdf)

Given the significant public profile and responsibility members of NHS boards hold, it is vital that those appointed inspire confidence of the public, patients and NHS staff at all times.  New regulations now mandate a number of specific background checks to ensure that those we appoint are “fit and proper” people to hold these important roles.

Monitoring
One of Harvey Nash’s and NHS Confederation’s objectives is to ensure that its workforce is reflective of the local community and therefore we actively encourage applications from under-represented groups. So that the we can successfully achieve these aims, while it is not mandatory we would encourage every applicant to complete the “Equal Opportunities Monitoring form” above so that we can measure the effectiveness of our efforts.  The Recruiting Manager does not have access to the Monitoring Information Sections of the application form at any stage of the process and the information  provided will be kept entirely confidential.

For a confidential discussion on the role please contact:

Frank McKenna, Director or Owen Francis, Associate Director on +44(0)20 7333 1548.
