Local hospitals look to recruit over 50 newly qualified nurses
Employing over 6,600 people, across three hospital sites in Doncaster, Mexborough and Worksop, almost one quarter of the Trust’s workforce is made up of nurses of this cohort of staff. Newly-qualified practitioners are integral to the Trust’s ability to deliver high quality patient care and as such the organisation is looking to recruit its next generation of NHS workers as it seeks to move on from the pandemic and the challenges of the past two years.
In total, there will be more than 50 vacancies available for graduates, across surgical, medical wards as well as urgent and emergency services.
To support appointees, all newly qualified nurses employed at the Trust take part in a ‘Preceptorship Programme’, a scheme to provide support to nurses in their first year in post to help develop skills, maximise potential and empower them to make a real difference to patient care. Recognised for its innovative and pioneering approach, this platform was nominated for a Nursing Times award in 2019.
To help promote the Trust as a place to work, all final-year nursing students are invited to attend a virtual meeting or face-to-face sessions to find out more about career opportunities across DBTH and what vacancies are currently available. Taking place on 16 and 28 March, the drop-in sessions are an opportunity to find out more about the Trust, the innovative work which takes place at its various sites and how soon-to-be-qualified students can apply to join the team.
