You’re welcome to apply for other opportunities within the organisation, however, we advise that you wait six months before making another application for the same role.
What is HCA Hospitals' Talent Pool?
There will be times when we haven’t quite got the right role for you when you apply. However, if you’re a good fit for HCA Hospitals we will add you to our talent pool.
By being added to this group you will be contacted via email approximately once a month with business news and any relevant roles that match your skills and experience. Also, if a new role is released that we feel you would be a really good fit for, a member of our Resourcing team will get in touch with you to discuss the opportunity further.
