New campaign highlights nursing opportunities

RCN nursing recruitment stand June 2015

A new website and film promoting the wide range of nursing opportunities available at Poole Hospital was launched at this year’s Royal College of Nursing annual Congress at the Bournemouth International Centre.

The new recruitment campaign aims to showcase Poole Hospital as a great place to work, and is aimed at both local nurses and those further afield, including the Home Counties.

Yvonne Jeffrey, assistant director of nursing, seen above with Maria Smith, nursing recruitment co-ordinator, said recruiting high quality nurses will help the trust to ensure patients continue to receive the highest quality care.

“Continuing to develop a motivated and committed nursing workforce is essential in ensuring the care our patients receive remains first class,” said Yvonne.

“We’re particularly keen to recruit high calibre registered and newly qualified nurses. We have some exceptional nursing staff here already, as our new film highlights, and want to recruit more to help us to make the care we provide to patients even better.

“I’m optimistic that we can find these exceptional individuals through initiatives like launching the new website, which is dedicated exclusively to nursing here, as well as our film which showcases just why nurses should consider Poole Hospital for all they want their career to be.

“We believe we have a unique offer here at Poole Hospital, with dedicated training and support, a wide range of tailored opportunities in a range of specialties in which to develop, in our town centre location, just minutes from the beach and quay.

“I’m confident that the quality of life we enjoy here, and the friendly and inclusive culture at Poole Hospital, will help us to attract the right individuals to these roles.”

The trust has recently successfully recruited a number of nurses, including from overseas.
