Join our talent pool

What is the Guy's and St Thomas' talent pool?

The talent pool is a streamlined way of recruiting to bands 2-4 administrative and clerical vacancies within the Trust.

The talent pool works similarly to an internal agency by having a "pool" of candidates which Trust managers can access when they have a vacancy, rather than having to advertise.

We recruit into permanent and fixed term roles. The talent pool is open to both external and internal candidates and there is a simple process to join.

Why apply to the talent pool?

The majority of our administrative vacancies are recruited to via the talent pool and not from our website or NHS Jobs. If you'd like to be able to be put forward for these roles, you will need to join the talent pool, subject to passing our assessment process.

Since its launch, the talent pool has been very successful in placing candidates into roles quickly.

Joining the talent pool

  • If you are interested in joining the talent pool, please email your CV as a Word document and a short introductory paragraph to
  • If your CV is shortlisted, you will then be asked to complete an online verbal reasoning test. If you pass, you will then have a short telephone interview and an IT assessment at our office in London Bridge.
  • If you are successful after this stage, you will then have an informal chat to discuss details such as the type of work, location and hours you are looking for.
  • As we have vacancies, we will choose candidates who we suggest to be suitable for the position and provide their CVs to the hiring manager. The manager will then decide which candidates to invite for interview.
