This Workforce Alliance agreement provides non clinical temporary staff largely to the NHS, though other public sector bodies can also use it.

It can be used to cover vacancies, leave (planned and unplanned), digital transformation projects, ad hoc projects, unforeseen work and the clearing of backlogs.

The kind of staff that can be hired on this framework include those with roles in administration, secretarial, finance, accounts and audit, HR, information and communication technology, health informatics, public relations, legal services, catering, drivers, estates and maintenance, security and environmental and scientific services and many more.

The framework has an award support tool which runs a price competition for the customer. This allows a search by region, role and job band, and produces a list that is ranked by cost which can help customers make direct awards - though further competition can also be run under the framework.

The framework uses NHS Improvement recommended price caps and NHS employment check standards to assure workers are compliant and is free to use for those in the NHS and the wider public sector.

There is an extensive choice of suppliers too - 80% of them small and medium sized businesses.

Framework documentation is available here.
