Pioneering our approach to recruitment – for all of us

Rapidly building a pipeline of critical talent to fill roles via statewide bulk recruitment campaigns as a new and innovative way to approach recruitment.

The impor­tance of explor­ing inno­v­a­tive ways to seek and attract the right peo­ple for the right roles has nev­er been more impor­tant than now.

We are only ever as good as our peo­ple and are com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing our pro­fes­sion­al growth, devel­op­ment and capa­bil­i­ties to deliv­er the spe­cial­ist ser­vices our com­mu­ni­ties and part­ners rely on us for.

As a result of the work­force impacts of COVID-19, NSW Health Pathol­o­gy estab­lished a Recruit­ment and Capac­i­ty Build­ing Work­ing Par­ty to explore options and strate­gies for how best we devel­op and sup­port peo­ple and cul­ture, in line with our strate­gic priorities.

One of the strate­gies iden­ti­fied by this work­ing par­ty was to rapid­ly build a pipeline of crit­i­cal tal­ent to fill roles via statewide bulk recruit­ment cam­paigns as a new and inno­v­a­tive way to approach recruitment.

As a long-term strat­e­gy, bulk recruit­ment cam­paigns are not designed to replace our cur­rent way of recruit­ing, rather com­ple­ment our cur­rent process­es and sup­port local recruit­ment actions when there is a need. It offers us a stream­lined way of recruit­ing mul­ti­ple peo­ple to mul­ti­ple roles at dif­fer­ent loca­tions while also cre­at­ing a greater oppor­tu­ni­ty to rapid­ly build our eli­gi­bil­i­ty lists for future recruit­ment needs and sup­port the increased num­ber of COVID-19 relat­ed roles.

This addi­tion­al approach to the way we attract and recruit tal­ent is anoth­er exam­ple of how we, as one statewide team, dis­play our pio­neer­ing spir­it – for all of us. NSW Health Pathol­o­gy are lead­ing the way with this ini­tia­tive and are excit­ed to col­lab­o­rate and share our learn­ings and results with our NSW Health colleagues.
