Oriel - Making Your Application

Oriel is the UK-wide portal and recruitment system for postgraduate specialty medical, dental and public health training vacancies.

Oriel enables applicants to register for training, view vacancies, apply, book interviews and assessment centres and manage offers, all within a single, central location.

The implementation of Oriel was the first time that all medical and dental specialty recruitment had been delivered successfully through a single recruitment system.

The benefits this system offers to applicants includes but is not limited to:

  • A single registration process; applicants only need one log in for the entire recruitment year and only need to enter certain parts of the application form once
  • A site that lists all vacancies and enables applicants to apply to any specialty in one place
  • The ability to book and manage interviews and assessment centres within one location
  • Applicants have their own profile and status updates for each specialty they have applied to; meaning they can see when they have been longlisted, shortlisted, invited to interview or offered a post
