Nurses invited to recruitment open day at NDDH

Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust is holding an open day on Friday 20 April aimed at recruiting nurses.

Experienced nurses, those looking to return to practice, newly-qualified nurses and nursing students due to qualify within the next 12 months are all invited to come and meet a variety of staff.

They will have the opportunity to have a tour of North Devon District Hospital (NDDH) and find out about the Trust’s pioneering work across acute and community settings, which has been recognised as an area of outstanding practice by the Care Quality Commission, and saw the Trust shortlisted for the national HSJ Awards in 2017.

Nursing staff will be on hand to talk about the variety of nursing roles at the Trust, what it is like to work for the Trust, how the Trust values staff and about the many training and development opportunities on offer. There will also be opportunities to have an interview on the day.

The event will take place at NDDH from 11am to 4pm.

Darryn Allcorn, director for nursing, quality and workforce, said: “Our staff are our biggest and best asset, and in the latest NHS Staff Survey this was made clear when we were placed as the top acute and community provider in England.

“The survey results show that our staff really feel they are able to make a difference, both to patients and to making improvements across the organisation, and work in a supportive environment that helps them make things happen.

“Whether you are a nurse looking for a change of role, just starting out on your career path, or are looking to relocate to beautiful northern Devon, we would welcome the opportunity to meet with you.”

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

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