Fancy a career with the NHS in Dorset? Find out more at Bournemouth Library

11th February 2019

Rewarding jobs which make a real difference to people’s lives will be on offer when Dorset HealthCare hosts a special recruitment open day next week.

The event will take place on Wednesday, 20 February, from 3-7pm at Bournemouth Library in the town centre.

It will showcase the many roles the Trust has available – not just in nursing and clinical positions, but also in finance, IT, estate management, catering and other support professions.

The day will give people the chance to speak to staff face to face, and ask questions about their work, training opportunities and what qualifications are required.

Dorset HealthCare runs 12 community hospitals around the county, as well as specialist inpatient services and a host of community-based teams supporting both physical and mental health. It employs around 5,500 people, all focused on making local lives better.

Staff from Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals and representatives from the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group will also be attending the day, promoting roles available in their organisations.

The event is very friendly and informal, and no appointments are needed to confirm your attendance – just turn up.

Dawn Dawson, Dorset HealthCare’s Director of Nursing, Quality and Therapies, said: “This event provides the ideal chance for anyone thinking about a career in the NHS to find out more about the wide range of opportunities we have and the potential to make a difference.

“Whether you already work in healthcare and would like a change, or if you are just thinking about what a career in the NHS has to offer, please come along and talk to us.

“We would love to tell you about the work we do every day to improve lives and how you could become an important part of that.”
