NCH&C recruitment event at Norwich’s Castle Quarter
Norwich jobseekers invited to community NHS recruitment event in Castle Quarter
Norfolk Community Health & Care (NCH&C) NHS Trust is holding a recruitment event to encourage jobseekers to find out more about working in the community NHS.
When: Wednesday 23 November, 10am-4pm
Where: Level 1, Castle Quarter, Norwich
Jobseekers of all levels and specialisms are invited to come along and meet teams from NCH&C, discover what it’s like working in Norfolk’s community NHS, and hear about the trust’s open vacancies.
NCH&C is currently hiring for a range of roles across the county. Opportunities include entry-level clinicians and admin support, apprenticeships, and various community and ward-based clinical roles, including nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and speech and language therapists. Full-time, part-time, flexible, and bank opportunities are available at locations across Norfolk.
Compassionate and dedicated individuals who want to start their NHS career as a band 2 Healthcare Assistant could even have their job interview on the day at the recruitment event in Castle Quarter. This is an entry-level role, with no previous healthcare experience required.
Aimee Harrison, HR Service Support Projects Lead, said:
“Our upcoming recruitment event will be a valuable event for jobseekers, especially those at the start of their career. We have plenty of entry-level jobs available, all with the potential to be a steppingstone to career progression. For example, you could join as an HCA, with no healthcare experience, and complete training and apprenticeships to become a qualified nurse or clinician. Having your HCA interview on the day means we can speed up the recruitment process, so you can start your new role even sooner.
“And we’re not just looking for clinical staff! With the right training, an entry-level admin role could kickstart a career in one of our corporate services, like HR, Finance, or Estates. We can even support staff with things like Functional Skills if they don’t have their English and Maths GCSEs, so don’t be put off if you think you’re not qualified. Come along and have a chat with our teams, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised about where a career in Norfolk’s community NHS can take you.”
NCH&C’s recruitment team will be joined at Castle Quarter by the apprenticeship team, clinical education team, Temporary Worker Service, and clinical colleagues. Jobseekers will be able to ask questions about the recruitment process and get support with their application and interview.
