Find out about NHS roles at work club

Posted onPosted on 23rd May

Jobseekers in Mansfield and Ashfield are to be given the chance to find out more about careers in the National Health Service (NHS) at two special events next month.

The events are taking place on 4th and 6th June at Nottinghamshire County Council’s weekly work club sessions in libraries.

Michelle Place, Widening Participation Project lead for the NHS, will be talking about the variety of roles the NHS has to offer, how and where to find them and what they are looking for in applications and interviews.

The events are taking place at:

•Mansfield Library, West Gate on Wednesday, 4th June (10am to 12noon); and
•Kirkby Library, Ashfield Precinct on Friday, 6th June (10am to 12noon).

The NHS employs around 28,000 people in Nottinghamshire – making it one of the county’s largest employers.

Typically there are 15-20 new NHS jobs in Nottinghamshire being advertised every week. The types of job opportunities are extremely varied, from apprenticeships and entry-level administration posts to professionally registered staff.

Coun Diana Meale, chairman of Economic Development Committee at the county council, said: “The NHS has a reputation for being a very good organisation to work for and, as one of the county’s largest employers, there are regular vacancies in all kinds of jobs to suit all kinds of people.

“These work club sessions will provide a great insight into what job opportunities are available, more about what it’s like to work for the NHS and give a chance to pick up some tips about what information to include in applications.

“If you are unemployed or looking for a change in career, our work clubs are a good place to get support. They regularly host events with local employers and special sessions on all aspects of finding a job, as well as being a place to meet and share ideas with other people in the same position.”

The council runs nine work clubs across the county, all based in libraries.
