  • Can I work with you part time whilst in a full time post at my hospital?

    Yes. Many Thornbury workers choose us to top up their pay and work alongside their full time jobs.

  • Can I do agency work in the hospital where I am employed on a substantive or bank basis?

    Sadly not. Any health professional substantively employed by a hospital will be unable to pick up agency work in the same hospital.

  • When will I know if an application is successful?

    We aim to contact all applicants within 24 hours of an application being received.

  • Do you only recruit nurses?

    No, we recruit nurses across many specialties, as well as ODPs, surgical first assistants, midwives and healthcare assistants.

  • Do you employ nurses, midwives or HCAs who have trained overseas?

    We recruit all nurses, midwives and HCAs who have a minimum of 6 months recent experience working in a UK hospital. The required experience can vary depending on your specialty.

  • Applied to join Thornbury previously, is my application still valid?

    We keep any outstanding applications on our system for 6 months. If you wish to pick up your application after that date, you will have to resubmit your application again.

  • How much experience do I need?

    We require a minimum of 6 months UK based experience for general nurses and HCAs. The requirements for specialist nurses and midwives will vary.
    You can find out exactly how much experience we require by visiting our specialism pages.
