Recruitment day at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust on 30 July 2022
Nurses and midwives looking for new career opportunities are invited to a recruitment open day at Tunbridge Wells Hospital on Saturday 30 July 2022 from 9am to 3pm.
Come along and hear about the different roles available at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust (MTW) and the exciting opportunities for career development and training. You will also be able to chat to senior nurses and midwives to find out what it’s like to work at this top performing Trust, be interviewed for specific roles and even go home with a job offer.
MTW is recruiting newly qualified nurses, as well as experienced staff nurses and midwives and we want people who are who are patient-focused, positive, flexible and forward thinking, to deliver outstanding care to patients and parents-to-be.
One nurse who has enjoyed developing her career at MTW is Louise Robertson who qualified as a registered nurse in 1994. After taking some time away from nursing, she joined MTW as a Band 5 nurse in 2018 after completing a return-to-practice course. In 2020 she was promoted to a Band 6 Junior Sister, and in January 2022 became a Band 6 Clinical Skills Facilitator.
As well as the clinical side of her role, Louise is now involved with coming up with new initiatives and working alongside new nurses who join the Trust. Her role is about ensuring safe practice across the team and providing good learning and development, so nurses and midwives can reach their full potential.
Louise said: “Nursing is in my blood. Someone once said that if you opened me up, I would have nurse written through me like a stick of rock. I now work with new nurses and midwives. I help to reassure and support them, so they can gain confidence in their skills and adapt to our way of working.
“The Trust encouraged me to progress, even when I may not have felt ready at the time. My passion for nursing never left me; it is part of who I am, and I’m delighted I made the decision to return to practice. My role enables me to still have patient contact and provide the outstanding care the Trust is renowned for, but at the same time pass on what I’ve learnt over the years to the next generation of nurses.”
MTW recently launched a major recruitment drive focused on clinical roles. This comes at an exciting time as the Trust has invested in new facilities, service developments, training centres and digital transformations. To find out more about our career opportunities, visit www.mtwcareers.com.
