A recruitment drive to attract registered nurses (adult and children’s), practitioners, doctors and GPs to work in Rotherham’s new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre is taking place next month to showcase what the state-of-the-art building has to offer as a place to work.

Taking place on Saturday 11 February between 10am and 3pm, the recruitment event will give people the chance to speak to existing employees of the Emergency Department and the wider organisation, have a tour of the new Centre as well as finding out more about The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust and plans for the future.

Job adverts for all of the roles will be added to NHS jobs shortly and there will also be the chance to apply at the event. Any nursing candidates will also have the opportunity to have their interview on the day too, which will significantly reduce the recruitment process.

Mark Hill, Head of Nursing for Emergency Care at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust said: “It’s a very exciting time to join the Trust with the new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre due to open in July as well as the wider plans for the future we have as an organisation. We always want to provide our patients with the highest quality care and the new centre will allow us to continue this in a fantastic environment.

“The recruitment event will give prospective employees a great insight into the organisation and in particular the new centre. There’s already a great workforce at the Trust and in the Emergency Department who are dedicated to providing our patients with high quality care and we hope that we’ll see lots of people at the event interested in becoming a part of our team.”

The new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre has been developed to transform the way that urgent and emergency health care is provided to local people. When the Centre opens in July 2017 people will have one place to go when they have an urgent or emergency care need where they will be seen by the most appropriate health care worker for their need or will be advised to return to their GP, pharmacist or to self-care at home.

For full details of what roles are available, to find out more about the new centre or to apply to any of the jobs please visit http://www.rotherhamemergencycentre.nhs.uk/. People attending the event are advised to follow the signage from the main entrance of Rotherham Hospital.
