CAREERS: Online health and care events coming soon

Two online careers events are planned to showcase opportunities in health and social care in the Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire area.

The first, taking place on Wednesday 12 August, is titled Find Your Purpose: Become a Nurse and will be streamed on Facebook Live at 10am.

It is hosted by the Healthier Together partnership and will include information and discussion on nursing degree programmes now available.

A number of places on nursing programmes will start in September making this a great time to hear from nurses about their own job experiences including tackling the local COVID-19 response.  Planned speakers will include registered nurses, student nurses, placement officers, UWE, and a senior nurse.

The second event, on Tuesday 18 August, is a virtual careers event showcasing all the current and future vacancies available across a wide range of local health and care organisations.

This will focus on providing young people with the information and support they need to start a career journey in health and social care. It will feature speakers from hospitals, care homes, GP surgeries, the apprenticeship service, and community care.

Both events will allow you to hear from staff and employers about exciting roles.  You will be able to ask questions, connect with organisations, and build the knowledge you need to progress.

These events are not age limited but will particularly benefit 16 to 24 year olds within the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucester region.
