Feedback from our staff is that they wanted more flexibility and a need to simplify the recruitment process for staff wishing to explore internal opportunities that are available at the same grade but in a different area within the Trust. At present our Transfer Scheme is only open for Band 5 nurses, but we aim to widen this opportunity to unregistered staff in 2019.
Criteria for applying:
- Worked at Homerton for 9 months or more.
- Completed all mandatory training and any local competancies.
- Had a recent PDR (If applicable)
- Under no disciplinary, capability or sickness management.
We have produced a set of guidelines for our Transfer Scheme, you can read more about these here.
When can I apply?
As long as you have met the critiera, whenever you are ready! The scheme is now open 24/7, 12 months a year to recieve applications.
Where could I move to?
As of January 2019 the following departments and managers are looking for Nurses to transfer into their services:
Childrens Emergency Department
Theatres & Theatre Recovery
Acute Medical Wards
Acute Surgical Wards
How can I apply?
It's very simple! There are 3 basic steps to follow. You can read these in more detail via our application flow chart.
Step 1-Complete the 2 forms below
Form 1: Your expression of interest form
Form 2: Managers Authorisation Form
You need to hand these in either via
a) E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
b) In person or post at: Human Resources office. You can find this at the Employee Relations Office, 54/56 Clifden Road, Homerton University Hospital E9 6SR.
Step 2: If you have met the minimum critieria, you will then hold a Transfer Request Meeting with the potential new manager. This is a relaxed, informal meeting to get to know each other and make sure you are eligable to move to this new department.
The Transfer meeting form will need to be completed by your new manager and submitted with the outcome.

Step 3: Once all the above is completed, you'd recieve a letter confirming your move and the date you will be transfered. You would usually be expected to work your notice period in your current area before you transfer.
