Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) are holding a special employment opportunities event over the coming months.

Taking place on Saturday, March 3 between 10am and 2pm at the Bob Champion Research and Eductation Building, visitors will have the chance to take a hospital tour, meet staff and mangers and learn why love working for the NNUH.

The event is ideal for nurses wanting to return to practice, those wanting to work in an Acute Hospital but lack recent experience, nurses trained overseas who want to register to work in the UK and AHP or Healthcare Scientists interested in seeing how the MMUH can help advance their career.

A spokesman for the NNUH said: “The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital recognises and values the wealth of experience you can brind to our organisation, we can offer tailor made and bespoke courses to help and support you.”

NNUH Nurse Kate Barmby, commented: “I had created a mountain! I had created this huge unsurmountable heap of excuses why I couldn’t go back into nursing five years after having my two children.

“It consisted of my childcare concerns, my perceived inability meet the academic requirements of the course, my outdated knowledge and skills and even my dog!

“My life was so busy I couldn’t imagine fitting in anything else but I’m so glad I did. After regaining my registration I returned as a staff nurse back in Respiratory Medicine. The flexible part-time working pattern offered means that the impact of my return to work has not had a detrimental effect on my children. It is a privilege to be a valued member of such a professional and caring team again.”
