Trust to stage Co Armagh recruitment day to employ more nurses

Qualified nurses could be offered jobs on the spot during a major local recruitment drive.

The Southern Trust has launched a new campaign to enhance its nursing workforce.

#MyNursingMoment shows the wide variety of opportunities across the Trust and aims to attract applications from Registered Nurses along with Year 2 and 3 Students.

A recruitment day will take place on Friday, October 2, in Seagoe Parish Centre, Portadown, where interviews will take place, offers made and pre-employment checks will be completed.

Launching his latest recruitment drive, the Trust’s Executive Director of Nursing, Francis Rice, said: “As our population grows and demands on our services increase, we are currently recruiting for Band 5 Adult Nurses.

“As one of the best performing Trusts in Northern Ireland we want to attract the highest calibre of nurses.

“Because we want our patients and clients to get the best possible care, we want our staff to get the best training and support – so Southern Trust nurses benefit from a wide range of experience, rotation, preceptorship and other opportunities for continuous professional development.

“We are committed to providing safe, high quality care, every day for every patient and client, so would love to hear from dedicated and compassionate nurses or nursing students.”
