NHS recruitment open day for healthcare jobseekers – complete an application and have an interview on the day!

Norfolk Community Health & Care NHS Trust (NCH&C) is holding a recruitment open day for healthcare professionals, and those who want to get started on their healthcare career journey.

Friday 23 February
09:30 – 16:00
The King’s Centre, Norwich, NR1 1PH

The informal drop-in event is for anyone who wants to find out more about working at NCH&C’s new Willow Therapy Unit. Attendees will also be supported to complete job applications in person, and complete interviews on the day if they wish.

Opening in Spring 2024, the Willow Therapy Unit will be a start-of-the-art new therapy unit based at Norwich Community Hospital on Bowthorpe Road. Staff will use cutting-edge technology and the latest therapeutic practices to help patients get strong enough to return home, following a stay in acute hospital. The new unit will be an important resource for helping the people of Norfolk stay well and in their own homes.

NCH&C is hiring for a range of roles at the new Willow Therapy Unit, including Nurses, Physiotherapists, and Occupational Therapists, as well as unregistered roles like Assistant Practitioners and Clinical Support Workers – perfect for individuals just starting out in their healthcare career journey. NCH&C welcomes applications from newly qualified clinicians, and those whose professional registrations may have lapsed. In both cases, NCH&C can support individuals as they gain confidence and competence in relevant clinical skills.

Kate Pontin, Operational Director for Transformation & Delivery at NCH&C, offered a warm invitation to anyone interested in a new healthcare career:

“We know the job-hunting process can be daunting, especially if you are at the start of your career or returning to work after a break, so we want to remove as many obstacles as possible with our upcoming recruitment open day at the King’s Centre. Anyone who’s interested in pursing a healthcare career is encouraged to come along to find out more.

“NCH&C colleagues will be on-hand to answer any questions about the new Willow Therapy Unit, and support attendees to complete job applications where needed. We know interviews can be particularly nerve-wracking, so we’ll be offering informal, ‘getting to know you’ interviews on the day, too, for those who want them. It’s also a chance to find out more about working at NCH&C. We pride ourselves on being a rewarding place to work, where staff can make a real difference every day as part of an amazing team. We also prioritise autonomy and staff wellbeing, with free gyms, access to a staff wellbeing service, free physiotherapy, and regular refreshments”.

Willow Therapy Unit will be one of ten inpatient units operated by NCH&C in Norfolk. Operating across the whole of Norfolk, NCH&C’s 2,500 staff also delivers health and care in the community, including in patients’ homes, care homes, and GP surgeries.
