Please be aware that jobseekers are increasingly being targeted with scam emails. Typically these concern a job offer but require a payment in advance. St Andrew’s Healthcare never asks for payments from job applicants. You will always meet a St Andrew’s representative for an interview before any formal offer is made. If you’re unsure about anything when applying for a job with us, email [email protected] for advice.
