Recruitment for Mid & South Essex NHS Trust

Mid & South Essex Foundation commissioned us to produce this recruitment video to attract applications from critical care staff.

We worked with them to create a clear script that clearly explained the roles available and the benefits of working with the foundation.

And we established a visual style featuring staff from across the foundation’s 3 main sites. Shot under Covid restrictions, it’s a well-paced and watchable film.

Magneto Films delivered a recruitment video that makes us proud, made us smile and is a great medium for us to show our new and potential staff.

Working with the NHS

Magneto has been working with the NHS for well over 10 years, so we have a deep understanding of the sector. Our crews are well versed in working in clinical conditions, and are as happy filming a busy CEO as we are a nervous patient.

Films for NHS Trusts

Magneto works with Trusts all over the UK, with recent productions ranging from Humber to Frimley Health Trust in Hampshire. We work collaboratively with comms teams and patient information officers within Trusts.

NHS England

We frequently work with national level NHS organisations and we’ve recently produced videos for NHS England and NHS Improvement. We’re experts at crafting video that’s effective and engaging.

NHS Charities

We also work with NHS charities to make films to promote and explain their services, to campaign or to raise funds. We bring a background in charity video production as well as our healthcare experience to our work for NHS Charities.


Patient Information Films

When people are newly diagnosed with a condition or they’re receiving treatment, they often have many concerns and questions. Video is a reassuring way to offer help and advice in a form that’s easy to share and can be watched privately.

Vision & Values

Many NHS organisations are going through substantial change, so video becomes a vital tool for communicating with staff across Trusts or Foundations. We make films that help NHS comms teams or human resources to communicate new strategies and visions to a wide team.

Onboarding & Recruitment Video

Attracting and retaining staff is a high priority for NHS Trusts and a well made video is an effective way of showcasing roles and facilities to recruit new clinical or care staff. It’s also a useful part of the onboarding process to explain values and share information to new staff.

Campaign videos

Video is a powerful tool for creating behaviour change or letting people know about new services and facilities that are available to them. We’ve worked with NHS Improvement to showcase personal healthcare budgets or to encourage patients to use on-line services.

Every shot of the film was considered thoughtfully and emotively, and the content of our film successfully conveyed our strategy,
