Nurses who get UK jobs to give State a cut from salary for job connections

UK Nursing Jobs Applications: The government of Kenya will get a percentage of the cash that jobless nurses who get UK jobs will be earning. The cut, which has been widely interpreted as a ‘job connection fee’ that the government is demanding has been exposed in a report that appeared in the Sunday Nation.

According to this report, the cash cut is similar to the one made by Kenya and Cuba, which saw the government get 100 Cuban doctors, with the Cuban government getting a cut. Currently, 3,329 jobless nurses have expressed interest in taking the jobs in the United Kingdom.

“Much like the Cuban deal details of how the nurses will be remunerated remain unclear, with the British High Commission only announcing that the health professionals will work under the National Health Service (NHS). The nurses who applied and travelled to the UK previously will also get an opportunity to apply for citizenship and earn 100 per cent of their pay,” the report in the paper said.

The report said that the nurses are being required to possess a Bachelor’s degree in nursing from a recognized institution, a license from the Nursing Council, a valid police clearance certificate, and proof that they are not currently employed in the public or private sector.

“Although it was not in the advertisement from the Ministry of Labour, the nurses are required to have at least 18 months experience. They will also will be required to take a multiple-choice English proficiency test and a computer-based test for UK nursing midwifery,” the report added.
