100 'ambitious' Irish nurses sought for jobs in Essex

Got what it takes? Three ‘roadshow’ recruitment events take place next week in Cork, Galway and Limerick.

BRITAIN’S NHS IS targeting Irish nurses as part of a new recruitment drive, aimed at hiring 100 staff to work in Essex.

The Colchester Hospital University Foundation Trust, in north-east Essex, is holding recruitment ‘roadshow’ events in Galway, Cork and Limerick next week.

The highest number of vacancies are in the areas of emergency medicine, care of the elderly, and general medical services.

“We have a severe shortage of nursing staff in general in the UK and are very keen to recruit nurses from within Ireland because of the standard of training and experience they have,” Associate Director of Nursing for Medicine, Carole Broadbank, said.

“Irish nurses are highly qualified, educated to a very high standard, are motivated, caring and empathetic and are highly sought after around the world. We have nursing posts at all grades available now and I can guarantee them they will be warmly welcomed and made feel at home when they arrive.”

We want ambitious nurses who share our values to join us and help make our community a healthier, happier place.

Interim accommodation will be provided for new recruits upon arrival, according to the Trust, and the package on offer includes 27 days annual leave – increasing with years of service.

Details of the Irish roadshow events will be available online here.
