How to get more information on any nursing job on the site

How to get more information on any nursing job on the site

You can always request more information about any of the jobs on Nurses.co.uk by simply using the Apply Now button and asking the right questions.

Applying for nursing jobs online can be a really intimidating prospect, especially if there aren’t enough specific details given about the role and the package on offer. Most people would instantly decide not to bother applying for that nursing job, but what if it sounds such a perfect opportunity you can’t pass up the chance of applying?

It’s common place to see very short job adverts on the internet, and they may even be indicative of the way the recruitment industry has developed in the online world, but they can still be useful if you can make the system work to your advantage.

Quantity over Quality

In the majority of cases, a recruiter will have hundreds of job ads posted in many different places so it’s likely the one you’re reading is a copy of several similar ones that are out there at any one time. It’s simply a way recruiters save time. By posting job ads that are very similar in content it saves time writing unique adverts.

We always try to encourage our advertisers to post good quality, individually written and detailed adverts, but unfortunately it's not always possible. If you follow the instructions below, you can request the information you're looking for and you may find yourself in the position of being one of the few applicants to apply.

Give a little to get a little

You are completely within your rights to only disclose enough information in order for the recruiter to make contact with you before you make a formal application. If you don’t feel comfortable sending off your full CV with every single piece of history given, you can write a shortened version of CV as a ‘taster’. It should tell the recruiter just enough so that they contact you, but not enough that puts you at risk of being too free with your personal information.

A taster CV is very simple to write, and can sometimes be more effective than the full CV that you might otherwise have submitted. You can chose which details to include and which to omit in order to get the recruiter interested enough to contact you.

You should definitely include your nursing qualifications, experience, current role and how long you’ve been in that role as well as your email address, phone number and what sort of role you’re looking for. This will give the recruiter a good insight into whether or not you would be suitable for the post, and if you are, they will get in touch.

Ask the right questions

Ok, so you’ve given the recruiter all they need to make contact with you and now all you need to decide is what questions you need ask in order to decide whether to proceed with the application or not.

You should consider asking some if not all of the following questions:

“Where is the role based, and what kind of organisation is it?”

“What is the salary and the working pattern?”

“What benefits are on offer, and what’s the holiday allowance included in that?”

“Is there potential for the company to support me with additional professional development?”

“How large is the team I’d be working with?”

After you've gathered the information, go away and think on it before committing yourself.

You don’t need to give a decision there and then. It’s best to come away, write down all the answers you got and compare it with your current role. Decide if it’s a good option to take and if it is, ring the recruiter back and say you’d like to go forward.

You can then submit your full CV, and they can take all your details ready to send on to the employer for consideration.
