On Wednesday 25 March 2020, NHS Jobs released new features to allow applicants to search, filter and apply for vacancies specific to COVID-19 in the NHS.
Applicants are able to easily identify these roles by the unique COVID-19 icon displayed next to the job titles.
Applicants can search for COVID-19 roles relevant to them by ticking the ‘COVID-19’ box when searching. Alternatively, job seekers can click the link in the banner on the NHS Jobs homepage which will take them to all COVID-19 roles that are currently being advertised.
When applicants search for roles on NHS Jobs in the normal way without ticking the ‘COVID-19’ box, relevant COVID-19 vacancies will still appear at the top of any searches and will also appear at the top of vacancies emailed to applicants who receive the ‘Jobs by email’ service.
These updates mean that employers who advertise roles on NHS Jobs can now flag vacancies as being specifically linked to COVID-19 by ticking a ‘COVID-19?’ box when posting. The vacancy will appear higher in the list of results that jobseekers see when searching for jobs if multiple matches are found.
Published vacancies that are still open for applications can also be edited by employers to flag them as COVID-19 specific.
Applicants can find COVID-19 specific roles by visiting NHS Jobs on www.jobs.nhs.uk. We encourage you to keep checking back to NHS Jobs for COVID-19 related roles because we are updating them as and when they are identified.
