We are working with NHS England and the global job website Indeed to host an event at The Bristol Pavilion, Gloucestershire Cricket Seat Unique Stadium on Thursday 19 May 9am to 7pm 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.
You don’t need any healthcare experience to join the NHS as a Healthcare Support Worker. In short, it’s what makes you ‘you’ that counts. Your natural ability to put people at ease. Your pride in doing a job well. And your passion for making life that little bit better for everyone you meet.
Jobseekers can find out more about the event.
After registering your interest, Indeed will check your suitability for the role before inviting you to book your interview slots. Candidates can then simply turn up to The Bristol Pavilion where you will be interviewed and possibly receive on-the-day job offers, subject to post-interview checks.
What to bring to the event:
- Evidence of right to work in the UK (where applicable)
- CV (printed out) or details of your last 3 employers for referencing purposes
- Two recent documents showing proof of address (Physical as opposed to digital copy)
- Passport (Physical as opposed to digital copy)
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.”
