A huge transformation programme in Essex is opening up a number of exciting opportunities for community and inpatient mental health nurses.

  • Registered Mental Health Nurses
  • Registered General Nurses
  • Allied Health Professionals (AHP)
  • Estates and Facilities professionals
  • Return to practice AHP’s

On the day you will have the opportunity to:

  • Discuss potential vacancies with the recruitment team and the recruitment process and what to expect when you apply for a post at EPUT.
  • Chat with our clinical representatives who will talk about their experiences in the Trust and give you some more information about our different wards and services that we provide.
  • You may have the opportunity to walk away with your dream job on the day!

EPUT have pledged to support this nationwide campaign which supports the Armed Forces Community to provide career development and opportunities within our NHS Trust.

We would therefore also welcome anyone from the Armed Forces Community that are interested in catering, maintenance, administration, finance, communications, management, or a role in one of the clinical services that we offer to attend on the day and speak to EPUT about how we can help you achieve your next career goals.
