Nurses invited to recruitment open day at NDDH

Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust is holding an open day on Monday 24 April as part of a campaign to recruit more nurses.

The Trust is looking for experienced and newly-qualified nurses for its teams at North Devon District Hospital (NDDH) and for its community teams. The Trust is also looking for anybody who would like to join as a bank nurse.

There are opportunities for experienced nurses looking for a new challenge, those looking to return to practice and students due to qualify from university in the near future.

The event will take place at NDDH from 11am to 4pm. People attending can meet clinical, recruitment and workforce development staff and have a tour of the hospital.

Darryn Allcorn, director for workforce and development, said: “Our latest staff survey results show that our staff think the Trust is a fantastic place to work. The results also show that our teams really feel they are able to make a difference, both to patients and to making improvements.

“We are looking forward to meeting any nurses or nursing students who think that this sounds like a place they would like to work.”

Staff will be on hand to talk about what it is like to work for the Trust and about the many training and development opportunities on offer.

Nurses can also find out about the Trust’s innovative rotational posts, working across acute and community settings, and have an interview on the day. There will also be plenty of information available for those who would like to join as a bank nurse.

Anyone who is interested in being interviewed on the day can fast-track their application by completing the online application form in advance.

Anybody who is interested in joining as a bank nurse should apply here.

There is lots of information about the Trust and what it is like to live in North Devon, as well as all of our current vacancies, at
