In a framework designed for use by all public and third sector organisations, the Non-Clinical Temporary and Fixed Term Staff agreement provides access to temporary staff, contractors and fixed term hires in a range of roles.

The framework is produced by the Workforce Alliance, an alliance between NHS Procurement in Partnership and CCS.  Quality assurance inspections are carried out to make sure all temporary and fixed term workers are compliant in accordance with NHS Employers Check Standards and Skills for Health for NHS roles.  Contracting authorities will be able to specify what pre-employment checks are needed, for example Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS).

How it Works



Why Use Non-Clinical Temporary & Fixed Term Staff?

The Framework is free of charge to access and brings together a wide range of suppliers including SME’s, specialist niche suppliers and managed solution options.  In addition:

  • Quick onboarding process and direct contact with suppliers to build good working relationships
  • Framework rates are set to a maximum; they cannot be increased but may be negotiated to a lower rate between both parties
  • Free transfer to permanent (‘temp-to-perm’) after 12 weeks in post, subject to 4 weeks’ notice
  • A range of tools available to help with selection such as skills matrix, award support tool and region and skills matrix
  • Transparent rates and costs show charges for both PAYE and limited company temporary workers, including fixed term appointments
  • Management information is available for all customers to detail reported spend and market analysis
  • Additional savings: through a range of discounts including nominated worker, volume-based level, prompt payment and length of placement discounts
