EU and Overseas Nurse Recruitment campaigns from 2020 – ongoing
Want to be part of something big? Become a CapitalNurse!
At some point in their life, everyone living in London will need a nurse. With a population of over 9 million, that’s a lot of people to look after. Which is why CapitalNurse’s vision to ‘get nursing right for London’ – and your role within that – is so important.
Better for London…
Everyone knows that ‘together, we are stronger’, and this ethos is at the heart of CapitalNurse. By bringing together some of London’s biggest NHS Trusts under one big umbrella, CapitalNurse has greater power to ensure that London has the right number of nurses with the right skills, working to deliver excellent nursing care, wherever it is needed. No competition between Trusts, just one collaborative effort.
As part of this, CapitalNurse has established an International Nurse Recruitment Consortium – and they’ve invited us here at Neu Professionals to help them. Having a pan-London overseas recruitment programme means all the Trusts involved can benefit from having a shared approach to welcoming, training, and developing nursing staff from countries throughout the world. And this, in turn, means they’re all better placed to offer outstanding care to the communities they serve.
Better for you…
As a CapitalNurse, you can be confident that you will enjoy exactly the same advantageous benefits package as every other CapitalNurse, regardless of which Trust you are employed by. You needn’t fight for a job with the ‘best’ Trust; once you’ve been accepted as a CapitalNurse, they allocate a Trust and then help you to settle in, grow your skills, and even reach new professional heights!
It’s not only the benefits package and training that are applied equally to all nurses. CapitalNurse is committed to ethical recruitment practices, just like us here at Neu Professionals (that’s one reason why they chose to work with us), ensuring that all their candidates are treated with fairness, respect and transparency throughout the application process. Like us, they also follow the Department of Health and Social Care UK Code of Practice (CoP) for international recruitment.

Of course, there are plenty of other reasons to come and kick-start or boost your career in nursing in London. As one of the most exciting cities in the world, the capital of England offers every kind of entertainment imaginable, along with a mind-blowing array of attractions, landmarks and places of historical significance.

The Trusts involved in the CapitalNurse Overseas Recruitment Consortium are all located within the London area and the iconic city centre of the capital is easily accessible by Underground or other public transport, making it easy to live in London without a car.
City centre aside, London has 33 districts, each with its own unique character and assortment of shops and amenities, which means there are plenty of areas for you to choose from when it comes to finding the right one for you.
