Leading ATS Provider Jobtrain Limited Awarded Contract by NHS Scotland in a Deal Worth £2m


Jobtrain Limited, a leading provider of Applicant Tracking Software based in the North West, has secured a contract to provide NHS Scotland with a single solution to support the replacement of their legacy recruitment systems.

NHS Scotland, the second largest public sector employer in the UK, with over 163,000 employees is moving towards a ‘Once for Scotland’ shared service model.  The implementation of Jobtrain is key to supporting this and the new recruitment system will form part of the process standardisation for NHS Scotland.

The contract is excellent news for Jobtrain who are building on their already established global success, where they work with clients such as Toyota, Paperchase, Odeon Cinemas, UCI Germany, Toshiba, The Isle of Man Government and many more.  The NHS Scotland account reinforces Jobtrain’s position as the UK’s leading ATS supplier.

Jobtrain have now also expanded their business further by opening an office in the heart of Glasgow, enabling a second convenient location to meet new and existing clients.

NHS Scotland went out to tender in October 2017 and undertook an extensive review of ATS providers.  Following a competitive process, Jobtrain was selected based on its usability, flexibility, scalability, service, support and innovation.

Chris Keeling, Owner and MD of Jobtrain, commented:

“We are understandably delighted to have won such a significant contract with an organisation as highly regarded as NHS Scotland.  We believe this is an opportunity to help shape the future of recruitment within the NHS and we are excited to be part of the ‘ Once for Scotland’ approach.  Having our new office in Glasgow will ensure even closer working with all our clients in Scotland and we are looking forward to this being a highly productive and forward thinking partnership”.
