#ANewKindOfTrust follows eight members of staff from UHNM during their time at work and at home, with the aim of showcasing these loyal and experienced staff in a way that engages with prospective employees, patients and the wider community.
The films are part of a recruitment campaign, and are aimed at inspiring people to engage with the trust and to increase the number of job applications.
“A New Kind of Trust is a social media recruitment campaign, which we’ve never embarked on before, but we know that our new workforce will come from an age where we know social media is the main communication process, and we didn’t have expertise around that.
The way that TINKER TAYLOR approached it has been with an eagerness, an excitement, and an openness to go anywhere and film anything. Every time I have seen the film, it has been really emotional because it just shows the kind of care, kind of enthusiasm and kind of commitment our staff have got, which we have never been able to express before.
You see them in the local community, you see the areas that they live in, you see the kind of lives that they live, and the emotion within that would never have been captured with just talking to the camera. The campaign itself has definitely exceeded our expectations. We have had tremendous feedback from these films. It has generated a lot of excitement; it has generated a lot of pride. This might be a recruitment campaign, but it has turned into so much more than that.
The filming has been amazing and it is the beginning of something new for us. TINKER TAYLOR has been amazingly flexible, and they’ve got the best out of this hospital, the best out of this environment and the best out of the people. It has been a fantastic experience.”
