How long will the onboarding process take?

NES has been asked to support the accelerated recruitment and employment of returners and students. This will mean a high volume of applicants will require pre employment checks to be completed as quickly as possible so that these workers can be brought in to provide essential support to frontline services as soon as possible. We anticipate over the coming weeks thousands of returners and students will require processing which means, we are unable to provide definitive timescales at this moment in time.
