Nurse recruitment open morning – Saturday 13 July

Steph Mohan

Come and join us at our next nurse recruitment open morning to find out more about the great opportunities for nurses here at South Tees.

You can talk to us about roles in our acute hospitals – The James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough or the Friarage Hospital, Northallerton.

We also have services in community hospitals in Redcar, Brotton and Richmond. We run community nursing services across Redcar and Cleveland, Middlesbrough, and Hambleton and Richmondshire.

The event at The David Kenward Lecture Theatre, The James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough, starts at 10am and will end at approximately 12noon.

You will meet senior nursing colleagues from across the organisation and will have the opportunity to look around wards and departments.

It is suitable for registered nurses who are looking for a new start in 2019, nurses looking to return to practice, third year students who will qualify in January or February 2020 or overseas nurses who are ready to register with the NMC.

This really is a great opportunity not to be missed!

And for any nurses/operating department practitioners who would like to work in theatres at James Cook or the Friarage there is an opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of our theatre department.

Radiotherapy Careers Open evening – Thursday 13 June

Whether you are looking to embark on your first career or it’s time for a new challenge, come along to find out more about the role of a therapeutic radiographer, the department and the clinical placements available.

Melanie Clarkson, placement learning tutor said: “Therapeutic radiographers help improve the lives of cancer patients every day. It’s an exciting and varied career which combines technical expertise with high standards of patient care.

“If you are caring, have good communication skills, have excellent team working skills and want to make a positive impact on a patient’s cancer journey, then perhaps this is the career for you.

“Earnings after completion of our course start at £22,000 and for the past 11 years 100% of our students have gone on to employment.

“We have radiotherapy clinical placements through Sheffield Hallam University at The James Cook University Hospital so you can get the best of both worlds by having the student experience in Sheffield and then coming home for clinical placement!”

Students need a minimum of 112 points at A Level (including a science) or equivalent qualifications to qualify for the course.
