*Golden Hello Scheme 

Are you a qualified nurse or healthcare professional looking for a new post in a dynamic, values-led and supportive organisation?

G4S Healthcare has introduced a ‘Golden Hello’ Scheme to reward candidates for choosing G4S Healthcare as an employer. The scheme applies upon the successful full time contracted recruitment of Qualified Nursing Posts.

Following all satisfactory pre-employment checks and commencement of employment, you will receive the payment in two instalments as follows:

  • £750 on commencement of employment (once all satisfactory pre-employment checks have been completed)
  • £750 on successful completion of 6 months service.

The payments will be non-pensionable and will be subject to tax and national insurance deductions.

Further information will be discussed at interview, should you be successful.

This role requires the ability to work with vulnerable, frail people, who may be distressed or experiencing pain, in a caring and compassionate way. A Criminal Records Bureau check will therefore be required to exclude any individual with a history of criminal behaviour which could be considered unacceptable (by G4S or the clients) in a patient care environment. Safety is of paramount importance and the post holder must ensure that safe systems of work are followed without compromise.  The post holder needs to be committed to maintaining high standards of customer care and service delivery.
