‘Raw Talent’ joins Thornbury Nursing


Thornbury-NursingOn the 5th March 2015, healthcare recruitment company Thornbury Nursing, offered positions to a number of highly motivated and driven individuals who had proven themselves as deserving of a career in recruitment with the company.

In the weeks before the day, Thornbury Nursing had enlisted the help of Sales Recruitment and Training specialists Raw Talent Academy as they looked to expand their trainee recruitment consultancy team. The day was a culmination of a rigorous process with both the new employees and Thornbury Nursing leaving happy.

Since 1983 Thornbury Nursing Services has set the pace within the temporary nursing sector. The company was founded upon the principle that exceptional skills should be recognised with exceptional rewards.

The Academy Process

Raw Talent Academy’s unique process started with them carrying out a comprehensive profile of Thornbury Nursing to fully understand the type of candidates that not only succeed, but thrive at the company. Following the profiling, Raw Talent Academy sourced the top candidates from the surrounding areas Birmingham to attend the audition day which was held at The Studio Birmingham

In the run-up to the audition day, Raw Talent Academy attracted a large number of candidate applications through numerous methods including mystery shopping and job fairs. These candidates went through Raw Talent Academy’s process so that only the best candidates that matched Thornbury Nursing’s profile were left.

The audition day saw the invited candidates undertake a series of real life business tasks while being assessed by both Thornbury Nursing’s senior management team as well as Raw Talent Academy assessors. As the day drew to a close a number of the talented individuals were offered a position there and then! The audition day process, created by Raw Talent Academy Founder & BBC Apprentice Winner Lee McQueen, has been designed to showcase the candidates abilities so that clients can judge them based on what they can do and not what is on their CV.
