Record attendance at Careers Clinic

More than 150 people learned about the wide range of careers on offer at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Saturday.

Clinical and non-clinical staff members manned stalls to promote the wide range of professions to 163 people of all ages – a record attendance.

Learning more about getting into nursing and administrative roles along with volunteering, apprenticeship and work experience opportunities were among the most popular stalls at the event.

Normally, the hospital holds two separate clinics for clinical and non-clinical careers on week nights but Widening Participation Facilitator Andrea James was delighted with the record response to the new format.

She said: “We were absolutely thrilled to see so many people who are interested in working at the hospital.

“By holding the clinic on a Saturday, it allows people who are at college or at work to have more time to learn about the clinical and non-clinical career options which are available here.”
