The Transfer Scheme is for all Homerton Band 5 Staff Nurses. It is a fast-tracked process to support you to move sideways into a different department or specialty.

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: 

Emergency Department
Childrens Emergency Department
Theatres & Theatre Recovery
Surgical Centre
Elderly Care
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 

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.
