Registered Nurse Recruitment Event
Harrogate District Hospital

Thursday 28th November 2019

On Thursday 28th November come along to our Nurse recruitment event to find out why HDFT is consistently rated as one of the best acute Trust’s in the Yorkshire area.

Our first principle is ‘You Matter Most.’ We provide our staff with the support, training and encouragement they need so they can deliver outstanding care every time.

Candidates have told us that previous recruitment events was ‘the best they have ever been to’ and that ‘everyone is so friendly.’ Whether you are a student, newly qualified, experienced or returning to practice, we are looking forward to speaking with you about your career aspirations.

Our event will feature:

  • A chance to meet our senior nursing and theatres staff to discuss your career development

  • The opportunity to hear about our new 2 year preceptorship course for Newly Qualified Nurses and discuss the support available to you with our Practice Educators.

  • A tour to see the ward or department you could be working in.
  • An interview, with the chance to walk away with a conditional offer of employment on the day.

A number of department and wards will be attending our event, including:

  • Elderly Care wards

  • Medical Assessment Unit and Medical Short Stay

  • Medical wards

  • Surgical wards

  • Intensive Care

  • Emergency Department

One of our recently recruited nurses said, “Before I attended the recruitment event, I had Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust in mind. After learning about the Preceptorship Programme at the event and the more I got to know about the Trust I decided that working here would be the perfect role.”

Come along on 28th November to find out more.

If you wish to book an interview slot in advance, please submit an application to this vacancy and a member of the Recruitment Team will be in contact with you.

Applicants who require Tier 2 immigration status to work in the UK are welcome, but such candidates will not be appointed to the post if there are a sufficient number of other suitable candidates as the employing body will in those circumstances be unable to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test, as required by UKBI.
In view of recent changes to Home Office Immigration Regulations, all applicants must state their current immigration status, including expiry dates.

All job offers are subject to Agenda for Change T&C’s, excluding medical posts. Offers may also be subject to a Standard or Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service certificate, dependent on the position.

HDFT takes its responsibility for the Safeguarding of Children and Vulnerable Adults seriously. Each member of staff must comply with the HDFT policy, procedures and strategies relating to Safeguarding.

In submitting an application form, you authorise Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust to confirm any previous NHS service details via the ESR IAT process should you be appointed.

Disclosure and Barring Service Check

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly known as CRB) to check for any previous criminal convictions.

Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration department requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement.
