Our Nursing Open Day is this Saturday - please join us!

The Royal Manchester Children's Hospital is holding an event to encourage nurses, whether experienced, newly qualified and student nurses to apply for a new wave of jobs.

Our Recruitment Café is being held in the Out-patients Department on Saturday 21st November between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm. There will be the opportunity to meet staff from all our wards and departments, as well as our Staff Benefits Coordinator, a representative from the Royal College of Nursing and one of our Practice Education Facilitators who will be talking about development opportunities.

Sue Rothwell, Modern Matron said: "We are inviting prospective staff to come along and gain an insight into working life at RMCH. It will be very informal and an invaluable opportunity to ask questions without the stress of an interview situation."

At RMCH, our vision is to be recognised internationally as a leading healthcare provider; excelling in quality, safety, patient experience, research, innovation and teaching; dedicated to improving health and well-being for our diverse population. With 371 beds it is the largest single-site children's hospital in the UK.

There are numerous benefits to working at RMCH. Because we value our staff and their contribution every day, we recognise the need to provide on-going support. We achieve this by starting your employment with a two week generic induction to all new staff followed by up to a four week supernumerary period which provides cohort support through the induction period.  In addition to a mentor for all newly qualified nurses, we offer a buddy to all new staff. We use a structured competency based framework and aim to support staff through IV training within six months and mentorship within 18 months of qualifying.

Drop in to our Recruitment Café and enjoy a brew and cake whilst hearing about the amazing new job opportunities at RMCH.
