Doing some Christmas shopping at the Galleries? Come visit our NBT Job Shop!

Tuesday, 14 November 2017

We will be opening a pop-up shop in Bristol City Centre to provide shoppers with the opportunity to find out about the range of roles we have available.

The NBT Job Shop will be officially opened at the Galleries on Thursday 16 November, and will remain there until 22 January 2018. The space was donated by the centre, and provides an ideal location due to its busy footfall and central location.

We are recruiting for a range of roles in various departments

Staff from our recruitment team and managers from various departments will be available to speak to those who are looking for positions in the NHS. We are recruiting for a range of roles including porters, domestics, healthcare assistants, acute general nurses, and specialist nurses for our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Intensive Care Unit and Theatres. 

As part of the NBT Job Shop launch, our recruitment team will be running a Twitter competition, providing attendees with the chance to win two theatre tickets.

Executive Director of People & Transformation, Jacolyn Fergusson said: “NBT Job Shop provides a great opportunity for people to speak to staff about the job vacancies and apprenticeships we have available.

“Everyone is welcome to come over and chat to us, whether they are considering a career change, want to learn new skills, or are starting out in their working life.”

Staff will be available at the NBT Job Shop on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11am to 2pm.

Colin Lang, The Galleries Centre Manager said, “This is the perfect opportunity for shoppers to understand the breadth of roles available at North Bristol NHS Trust and to talk to people in those positions about what it’s like working for the NHS.

“We pride ourselves on being a pillar of the community so it was a no brainer when North Bristol NHS Trust approached us for space in the centre, which we decided to offer them for free. The Job Shop is in a prime location on the ground floor near Poundworld Plus so we hope to see lots of people dropping in to learn more.”

Shoppers in the Galleries will also be able to find out more about Southmead Hospital Charity and donate £5 via text. The Charity raises money for North Bristol NHS Trust and thanks to lots of local support it funds state of the art equipment for patients, research into new treatments, improvements to the hospital environment, and support for Trust staff. Find out more about Southmead Hospital Charity at
