Care Group stand attracts 100s of potential recruits at RCNi nursing and careers fair

Colleagues from the GP Care Group’s Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC), Human Resources and 0-19 children and family service attended the bi-annual London RCNi careers fair on Friday 2 February to meet potential new nurse recruits.

Posted on: 13 February 2024

Occupying a high footfall location, at stand 38, the event provided the perfect opportunity to meet hundreds of job-seeking nurses looking for their next role. The fair typically attracts band 6 and above nurses, from students to advanced practitioners.

Keen to stand out and attract the attention of potential recruits, the Care Group stand displayed a colourful spread of merchandise including pens, magnets, water bottles and snacks. 

However, a highlight of the day was our popular quiz competition about the East End. As a nod to our East End bases, the quiz promoted local knowledge and encouraged those taking part to keep in touch to learn about events, news and upcoming nursing roles within the Care Group. Following a draw, three lucky winners walked away with £20 Amazon vouchers each.

One of the lead organisers of the Care Group delegation at the fair, Julie Eldridge, Lead Nurse in our UTC spoke about the event. She said: “Our aim for attending the fair was to meet as many nurses as possible with a view to recruiting the right candidates into substantive positions within our Urgent Treatment Centre and 0-19 services.

“We were able to promote our current vacancies and nurses who attended our stand were directed to scan the barcode on our posters taking them straight to job adverts and applications. More than 100 nurses shared their contact details with us, keen to learn about current and future roles. 

“It was a fun and worthwhile day out to promote the good work we are doing within our organisation and to recruit some new team members. I personally found it intriguing that practice nursing is a key area of  interest to the nursing community.”

We would like to say a big thank you to the organising team, including Julie and Kuda from the Urgent Treatment Centre, Mary from 0-19 and Maxine from Human Resources.
