Kettering General Hospital is holding its second careers fair of 2016 to recruit to a variety of different jobs, including nursing and healthcare assistants.

The event is being held from 10am to 12.30pm on Saturday, May 14, at the hospital’s Recreation Hall (now called The Hall@KGH) which is adjoining car park B close to the trust’s headquarters building Glebe House.

Departments from across the hospital will be on hand to describe positions available and how to apply for posts.

Head of workforce information Andrew Stewart said: “There will be a strong emphasis on nursing careers, including registered nursing, health care assistants and housekeepers.

“There will also be information available on how you can join our staff bank [individuals who work shifts at short notice and want greater flexibility around their working hours] – especially healthcare assistants and administrative staff.

“In addition there will be information on positions across the hospitals from many different departments so there are exciting opportunities for anyone with an interest in working at the hospital - or people with existing healthcare skills looking for new opportunities – to attend our event and find out what is on offer.”

Kettering General Hospital director of nursing and quality Leanne Hackshall said: “Northamptonshire is a great place to live and Kettering is a fantastic place to work.

“We have excellent nursing opportunities at KGH, and welcome all want to join our friendly teams to help us care together.

“At KGH we have 1,126 full-time nursing positions but each year clearly we need to replace staff due to retirement, or career moves, and we are always looking to develop new and exciting roles designed to enhance patient care and staff experience.

“As a result recruitment to nursing posts is always ongoing and there are always great opportunities to develop your career here at KGH.”
