International Registered Nurses (With IELTS) Programme
Following the success of our recent pilot to recruit overseas nurses, we are happy to announce that the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust is now extending this programme to give overseas nurses that are resident in the UK but qualified overseas, the chance to be employed by us and gain their NMC registration.
It is an exciting time to join us here at The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust. We have a range of development opportunities across a wide range of departments; there has never been a better time to move your career forward in a friendly, supportive and forward thinking environment.
The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust is one of the leading Acute and Community Trusts in the region. Employing more than 8,000 staff, we provide a comprehensive range of Community, Rehabilitation and Acute specialist services for the people of Wolverhampton, the wider Black Country, South Staffordshire, North Worcestershire and Shropshire. Nationally recognised for providing excellence in Healthcare and 1 of only 7 Trusts in the UK chosen to be a showcase hospital for infection prevention, we are justifiably proud of our achievements to date. Patient safety and quality of care are at the top of our agenda.
Royal Wolverhampton nurses are highly motivated and passionate in providing the highest quality and safe care to patients. As part of our Overseas Education Programme we are looking for candidates with a ‘can do’ attitude, who have a commitment to improving the way healthcare is delivered on a daily basis. You will join a team of nurses who possess excellent communication, organisation and clinical skills. In return, you will benefit from an excellent pension scheme, a generous holiday allowance and NHS staff benefits discounts.
How the course works:
If successful at interview, you will be offered a contract as a Band 3 Healthcare Assistant. During this contract, you will receive significant training and support from our Nurse Education Department so that you are prepared for your NMC examinations (CBT and OSCE). This offer is condition subject to receipt of your NMC Registration Statement and Pin Number within 28 weeks from the commencement date of employment within the Trust. Failure to do so may result in immediate termination of your contract of employment with the Trust. Once the required training has been completed, you will receive a permanent contract as a Band 5 Staff Nurse.
How we support you:
In addition to the training programme, we will also fund your first CBT examination, and OSCE. If you fail on your first attempt, you will be responsible for paying for any supplementary examinations. You will be required to pay for your NMC application pack, and your NMC registration fee.
What we require from you:
You will be required to sign a contract that states that you will repay the cost of the training programme if you decide to leave the organisation during the initial 12 weeks, or within 12 months of registration.
Who we are looking for:
Applicants must hold a nursing qualification and live registration overseas, and have at least 12 months experience in the country where the qualification was obtained. Due to the expected popularity of the course, we will not be able to support candidates that require a Tier 2 visa (COS).
We are only able to accept candidates that have passed their IELTS examination to Level 7 in all four parts in the last 24 months, so please state this clearly on your application. We will request evidence of your examination results prior to interview.
Applications will remain open indefinitely. Shortlisted candidates will be required to attend an interview at The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust.
If you think you have what it takes to join our team and help develop services in a challenging and innovative environment; professionally there has never been a better time to join us.

Please be advised that if the post that you are applying for requires any level of qualification (e.g. A-Levels, Degree etc) or Professional Registration (e.g. Nursing and Midwifery Council, General Medical Council etc) you will be required to provide proof as part of the pre-employment process. By submitting your application you are giving the Trust permission to check the qualification certificates provided back to the source provider. Please note that a sample of all applicant’s qualifications will be checked with the educational institution or provider. Furthermore, a sample of all applicants’ qualifications will be checked back to the educational institution or provider to interview letters to further deter fraud.
Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test . The UK Border Agency requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit UK Border Agency website.
