Why attend an RCNi Nursing Careers and Jobs fair?

Whether you are an experienced nurse looking for a new challenge or just starting out in your nursing career, RCNi Nursing Careers and Jobs Fairs are here to help.

A programme of live events for 2022 starts on February 9 at Manchester’s Old Trafford stadium, where staff from trusts in Manchester and Lancashire and South Cumbria will be looking to recruit staff. 

If your pandemic experiences have prompted you to consider working further afield, London’s King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust will be among the wide range of employers recruiting at the Manchester event.

CPD accredited seminar programme at Manchester

The CPD accredited seminar programme is back for 2022, with expert advice from RCN careers coaches on how to write your CV and supporting statement so they are the best they can be, and how to do well at interview stage, with take-home interview tips and advice.

Joining the seminar programme at the Manchester RCNi Nursing Careers and Jobs fair is award-winning Admiral Nurse Kerry Lyons, who will be presenting a seminar on how her dementia support service has empowered carers and seen significant reductions in inpatient stays across the Bolton area.

Health visitor Emma Carey from Northern Care Alliance, winner of the Community and General Practice category at the 2021 RCN Nursing Awards, will be talking about her work supporting isolated families during the pandemic.

Whether you are looking to embark on a new career pathway or want expert advice on how to get the most out of your current role, RCNi Nursing Careers and Jobs Fairs are the perfect place to start - and entry is free.
