Registered Nurse and ODP recruitment events

We host four corporate recruitment events each year, these events are for registered nurses and operating department practitioners (ODPs) and include divisions from across the Trust. The events include an opportunity to meet the senior nursing team and the practice education team on the day. The recruitment of midwives and nurses in the Children's Hospital is led by their respective teams.

Below is a list of divisions and departments that join the recruitment events:

  • Medicine
  • Surgery
  • Cancer and associated specialties
  • Critical care
  • Theatres
  • Neonates
  • Ambulatory care

All applicants who are shortlisted for interview will be allocated to a panel dependent upon their preferences on the application form - getting the allocation right for successful candidates is essential.

Rotation opportunities

Rotation opportunities are available across the medicine, surgery, and cancer and associated specialties divisions. The practice education team will meet with candidates who choose a rotation allocation; this will include a meeting on the day and after the event. Candidates who would like a rotation at the Trust will be interviewed by a panel specialising in rotation allocations.
