Schedule confirmed for NHS Careers Fair

The schedule for our Careers Fair with RL Cares and Warrington & Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust on Tuesday 19th October 11am-2pm has been confirmed, with several special guests set to attend the free event.

All are welcome to come along and talk to professionals from several different departments within the NHS with a view to finding a job with one of the largest employers in the world.

Dr. Phil Cooper MBE, multi-award winning and widely published mental health nurse, will be there to give a talk about mental health in the Karalius Suite, with his first talk at 11.45 and his second at 12.45.

Also in the Karalius Suite will be a Theatres demonstration from Diane Nicholls of Warrington & Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust at both 11.15 and 12.15, combined with a talk from Danny Craven about the multiple surgeries he has been through.

There will be opportunities to ask questions after each talk and to gain a professional insight into key areas of the NHS.

Over in the Bridge Suite, Rachel Hanson will be giving advice on recruitment within Warrington & Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Her talks on NHS careers will take place between both 11.15-11.45 and 12.45-13.15. She will also be giving guidance on applications between 12.00-12.30 and 13.30-14.00.

Paul Wood and Keith Senior, both successful former rugby league players now working with RL Cares, will also be on hand to advise attendees about mental health.

Our very own Jack Owens and Danny will be in attendance as well to lend a helping hand.

All are welcome to come along and browse the stalls in the Bridge Suite as well, which will include presenters from sectors such as Wellbeing, Clinical Education, Theatres and Preceptorship.

Drop in any time between 11am-2pm and you will be directed from the main reception of the DCBL Stadium up the stairs and into the Suites. Social distancing guidelines will be in place so be sure to bring a mask with you.
