Teachers from West Nottinghamshire College will be available to give guidance on health and social care courses, apprenticeships, and access to nursing programmes.

Rob Simcox, the Director of People at Sherwood Forest Hospitals, who oversees the Trust’s recruitment efforts, said: “Sherwood Forest Hospitals is a fantastic Trust to enjoy a long and rewarding career – and with over 350 careers across our NHS, we have a lot to offer.

“Each role is so different, everything we do is for our patients, their families, carers, and the public. We all contribute in different ways to provide great patient care and together we make a difference to help others. Hosting the Step into the NHS event at our King’s Mill site will give a great insight into what it means to be part of the Trust.

“Sherwood Forest Hospitals is recognised as a great place to work, this is a fantastic opportunity to come along to our hospital, connect with our colleagues, and find the NHS career that is right for you.”
