Primary Care Careers (PCC) – Funded Recruitment Support

Last updated Friday 4th March 2022

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Training Hub is funding and supporting the commission of Primary Care Careers for the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough area until the end of March 2022.

Primary Care Careers (PCC) will offer another avenue to support the recruitment of roles in C&P primary care, potentially support bringing more staff into the C&P area and filling vacancies. With Winter Access funding, winter pressures and ARRS recruitment, this could be the optimal time to spread the recruitment net further especially with Primary Care Careers gathering momentum on being a primary care recruitment support service (not a recruitment agency).

There is no charge to the practices or PCNs for using PCC and the service they offer is very tailored to each practice and PCN to support you with you individual needs. They also work closely with applicants to ensure applications and shortlisting are of good quality.
