A LEADING nurse hailed the success of a recruitment day after dozens of candidates were offered jobs.
Fifty-three nurses are due to start work at the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Rotherham Hospital, in September following the event at Rotherham Hospital.
They will work at the hospital, in the community and in the new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre, which is due to open this summer.
The trust said there had also been “a great deal of interest for midwifery on the day”, with a host of qualified and student midwives also attending.
This included 40 students from five different universities.
Ellie Monkhouse, acting chief nurse at the trust, said: “Our latest recruitment event was a hive of activity with five recruitment panels interviewing candidates.
“We also had volunteers showing people around the hospital’s facilities and our existing nurses and midwives were on hand to talk to people about why the trust is such a great place to work.
“Congratulations to everyone who were offered roles on the day and good luck to those who are continuing with their application process.”
