²gether NHS Foundation Trust is working with other NHS Trusts and Gloucestershire County Council to organise a high profile recruitment event.

The aim of this event is to attract a wide range of people to come and work in our services. The event, which takes place in Cheltenham on Saturday 12 November, will host stalls from a wide range of employers, including:

  • ²gether NHS Foundation Trust
  • Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Gloucestershire Care Services
  • NHS Gloucestershire CCG
  • Gloucestershire County Council

Those attending will have the opportunity to meet employers, who are actively looking for candidates, face-to-face. They will be able to talk about the vacancies currently on offer and, in some cases, interviews for some vacancies will take place on the day.

There will also be a number of speakers on the day, focusing on a range of topics, including returning to practice and mental health nursing.

Carol Sparks, Director of Organisational Development, ²gether NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are looking for people who want to work in clinical and non-clinical roles. We are looking for nurses, doctors, other clinical staff and, in particular, people who want to work in our in-patient and community mental health teams.

“We are a forward thinking trust and we want to not only encourage people to return to practice, but also to encourage people to explore other routes into mental health nursing, such as apprenticeships and through opportunities for students. There really will be opportunities for all.”

The fair runs 10am to 4.30pm and will be held at Jury’s Inn, Cheltenham.
