Sirona care & health is working with NHS England and the global job site Indeed to host an event at Bristol Pavilion on Thursday 19 May for Healthcare Support Workers new to the NHS.
The event is one of the first of its kind since COVID-19 restrictions were eased and is aimed at candidates who are looking to start out in a healthcare career, return to work after a break or change careers from another sector.
Jobseekers can find out more about the event at https://events.indeed.co.uk/event/61ce006e-1f13-46da-8272-99cb6e6480aa/?from=nhs3.
After registering their interest, Indeed will check people’s suitability for the role before inviting them to book their own interview slots. Candidates can then simply turn up to Bristol Pavilion where they will be interviewed and possibly receive on-the-day job offers, subject to post-interview checks.
Maggie Hulce, EVP and GM of Enterprise at Indeed, said:
“Healthcare workers play a vital role in society and have been called upon like never before over the past two years. With demand for their care and compassion at an all-time high, Indeed is proud to partner with the NHS on our hiring events to help people find new and purposeful careers in the health service.
“Our mission is to help people get jobs and by streamlining the manual processes involved in hiring we’ll quickly move suitable candidates straight to the interview stage and free up NHS employees to do what they do best, which is engaging with people interested in fulfilling careers.”
Duncan Burton, Deputy Chief Nursing Officer for England said:
“Healthcare support workers are at the heart of wards, clinics and local communities up and down the country, and play an integral part in delivering incredible patient care every single day.
“If moving into healthcare is something you’ve been thinking about or have always wanted to try but thought you needed existing skills and experience, now’s the perfect time to apply and take your first step into this rewarding career.”
Mary Lewis, Director of Nursing and Quality at Sirona care & health said:
“Healthcare support workers are at the heart of our community services, working with people and their families to deliver the best outcome for individuals to enable them to stay as independent at home as possible.
Whether you are supporting people in their homes or in one of our rehabilitation units, we also offer great support and training across all areas, to ensure our colleagues can achieve their own goals within a caring and supportive environment. We look forward to meeting you on Thursday 19 May – we’d love to hear about you and how you can help us make a difference.”
