There is more to the RCN than you might think. We’re a trade union with a membership of close to half a million nurses, midwives, nursing support workers and students. We support their practice, represent them, lobby on their behalf, and develop them. We exist to make a positive difference to the working lives of our members and ultimately to standards in patient care.
We're accredited with Investors in People Gold Standard. Our people are our greatest asset, and we want people who can contribute to our purpose in line with our values.
The purpose of the People and Organisational Development team is to enable the RCN to succeed through its people. Only through our talented and dedicated people can we deliver the high-quality products and services that keep our members and other customers with us and attract new ones every day.

It's a job full of possibilities as you could get involved in anything from providing advice and support on resourcing initiatives and processes, to undertaking resourcing related project.
You will be the first point of contact for recruitment activity across the RCN, including liaising with job seekers, applicants, recruiting managers, and external stakeholders, providing advice on all aspects of the process including media and the selection process. You’ll take responsibility for delivering a comprehensive, high quality recruitment service to managers and staff, ensuring customer satisfaction.
Providing a proactive and comprehensive people resourcing service to managers and staff is key to this role, particularly in the provision of providing solutions-focused advice and guidance to managers across the breadth of resourcing activity work.
You’ll need knowledge of recruitment processes, policies and legislation and experience of providing recruitment advice and guidance.
You’ll need excellent verbal and written communication skills, a high level of attention to detail and accuracy and the ability to plan and prioritise workload to ensure deadlines are met under pressure.

Many of our employees enjoy flexible working enabling them to deliver results whilst having a good work life balance. We offer generous maternity, adoption, paternity, and shared parental leave packages.
As a result of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of our staff have been working from home. As this ends, we’ll be trialling blended office and home working to empower our people to do their best work by enabling them to balance the demands of work and home.
