Our team is gearing up to be at the Sheffield Hallam University Careers Fair on 18 July where they will share all that's great about nursing at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust.

At the event, students will get the opportunity to question Helen Dobson, Deputy Chief Nurse, about nursing, what it is like to work at Rotherham and the way the Trust operates.

There are some amazing opportunities for nurses to grow and develop within the Trust. Newly qualified nurses taking up posts at Rotherham are supported and encouraged to put their training into practice by being part of:

  • A tailored 12 month rotation/compass programme including a two week induction and four rotations across a range of our services
  • 'Touch base' group support days where nurses can meet with their newly qualified counterparts and colleagues to exchange experiences
  • Preceptorship programme including attended study days over six months covering topics from meeting clinical nurse specialists to understanding how our Trust operates corporately
  • Access to our health and wellbeing support to help handle transition and situations which could be stressful, for example
  • Support and advice in building revalidation portfolios
  • Dedicated one-to-one support from experienced nurses

Before the careers event at Sheffield Hallam, adverts for nursing posts at the Trust will open on NHS Jobs on 16 July. Then, on 18 August, those who have successfully applied will be invited to an open day to be interviewed. At the open day senior nurses will be pleased to offer advice about careers in nursing and our recruitment team will be there to answer queries. Offers will be made there and then on the day for successful candidates, subject to the usual checks.

It is an exciting time to join colleagues at Rotherham as we work to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone in Rotherham.
