New year… new job? Your local NHS is recruiting!

Do you want to make a difference and embark on an exciting career in the NHS? If so, Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is holding a recruitment fair at the Hillcrest Hotel in Widnes on Thursday 1 December 2022, between 1pm and 7pm.

Our NHS teams will be on hand throughout the day, with a host of exciting opportunities available. Whether you have NHS experience or not, we could have the job you are looking for.

We will be on-hand to guide and help people through the NHS application process and explain how they can become a part of an organisation that supports thousands of people in their local community.

Our staff work in health centres, clinics and patients’ homes throughout Halton. We also work in neighbouring Warrington and beyond. We provide a wide range of services from community nursing, occupational therapy and specialist dental care.

Behind the scenes there are opportunities to join our non-clinical and support teams that provide invaluable assistance to our clinicians and advise on a wide range of issues from human resources, IT and communications.

At Bridgewater we also have a fantastic preceptorship programme for newly registered staff and all staff can access a suite of additional employee benefits to help them better balance their home and work commitments.

“The opportunities are endless,” said Paula Woods, Director of People and Organisational Development at Bridgewater Community Healthcare.

“We have vacancies for community nursing staff, health care assistants, therapists, administrators and so much more including information on upcoming apprenticeship opportunities.

“The NHS apprenticeship programmes provide many thousands of people with the opportunity to become a part of the NHS – learning and working and making a difference to patients’ lives.

“Many people are unaware of the vast array of career opportunities within the NHS. We hope our careers event in December will open people’s eyes to the many exciting and diverse roles available… quite literally on their doorsteps.”

“Our staff are our greatest asset and provide fantastic care and support to adults and children throughout Halton and beyond. We pride ourselves on our flexible and supportive approach and would love to see people at our careers fair so they might see for themselves some of the many exciting clinical and non-clinical opportunities available to them.”
