Non-Clinical Temporary, and Fixed-Term Staffing

Agreement ID - RM6160
Start date - 30/07/2019
End date - 25/7/2023

So many non-clinical people across all departments in the NHS play a vital role. From the IT teams that keep systems running, to the facilities management teams who keep the hospital clean. From the HR teams who recruit clinical and nonclinical staff, to the finance teams who manage the budgets – all of these people play their part in keeping the NHS running and providing excellent patient care. That’s why it’s so important to us to help you find the right people for the job.

This NHS 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.

We’re committed to helping future proof the NHS and build talent and resources for the long term. We can help you engage with local communities to share the benefits of a career in the NHS, encourage people to retrain in clinical support roles and develop strategies to attract new staff, as well as retain and develop your existing workforce.

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.


This framework has six lots. Many of the potential suppliers are capable of supplying the complete mix of services, however, lotting the framework allows for specialist suppliers and makes it easier for customers to navigate.
