Description

The purpose of this Invitation to Tender is to expand the impact of the Volunteer to Career programme led in partnership by NHS Health Education England and Helpforce. The first cohort of programme launched in June 2021, the second in September 2022, and aims to positively impact NHS workforce recruitment needs at a local level through the design of Volunteer to Career initiatives.

NHS Organisations are supported with funding to support senior clinicians to work with volunteer service teams to design and develop specific roles to be undertaken by volunteers according to the local workforce recruitment needs.

A key measure of the success of the programme is to see an increase in the number of volunteers who have an interest in pursuing a career in health and care after their volunteering experience.

Learning from the programme will be scaled and spread through the development of resources, tools, learning, case studies and evidence-based models/initiatives developed within the projects and shared with other organisations.
