Two major health and care recruitment events in March

NHS and social care organisations across Derby and Derbyshire are coming together to stage two events in March 2023 to attract more people into a variety of rewarding caring careers.

Joined Up Careers Derbyshire, a partnership of health and social care employers, is putting on the Future Talent, Future Heroes events to highlight apprenticeship opportunities and other entry-level roles.

The events take place on Tuesday 14 March, 10am-2pm, at Chesterfield College and on Wednesday 15 March, 10am-2pm at Derby College Roundhouse. Both events will showcase how students and the wider public can gain roles in the health and social care sector.

Susan Spray, Joined Up Careers Derbyshire programme lead, said: “One of the biggest challenges facing health and social care is ensuring successful recruitment into the sector and that we have a workforce fit for both now and into the future. As such, we are really excited to be staging these events that spotlight the many ways to get into working in health and social care and the huge number of different roles available.”

NHS organisations including mental healthcare, community care and hospital care as well as local authorities and care homes will be represented at the venues. There will be display stands, speakers and seminars. Both events are free to attend and do not require booking in advance. Just turn up on the day and find out all about the many different opportunities available.
