Recruitment process improvement


A new recruitment system known as TRAC is being implemented within the East of England Ambulance Trust.

What is TRAC Recruitment system?

TRAC Recruitment systems is an intelligent applicant management software for the NHS and public sector which enables a faster, better and more efficient way to recruit. The TRAC System is currently being used by more than half of all NHS Trusts/Health Boards across England and Wales, all of whom have seen huge benefits and positive improvements in their time to hire.

The TRAC Recruitment system is an interface system that will link in with NHS jobs, the Electronic Staff Records system and potentially also the Disclosure & Barring Service. While applicants will still apply for posts via NHS jobs, all the processing of the initial vacancy through to the shortlisting, recruitment and appointment phases will be managed via the TRAC Recruitment system with HR and recruiting managers taking responsibility for their own part of the process. 

Training will be provided for all recruiting managers.

Why TRAC Recruitment system?

The TRAC Recruitment system will;

  • help streamline the recruitment process,
  • shorten the Trust overall time to hire,
  • speed up pre-employment checks and
  • improve communication with the applicant for a better candidate experience.


The start-up meeting for the implementation of TRAC will be held this week on the 17th January. This is with a view that the new system will be operational from May this year. 

Please look out for further information including the opportunity to attend training if you are a recruiting manager.

Please contact if you have any questions.
