Countdown to recruitment day

​Just three days remain until Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT) holds its first recruitment day at Ipswich Corn Exchange.

Vacancies are available in East Suffolk for qualified mental health nurses, qualified learning disability nurses, occupational therapists, social workers, assistant practitioners and clinical support workers.

NSFT staff and service users will be available at the recruitment day, which takes place on Thursday (7 June) between 11am and 7pm, to talk about the Trust from their own perspectives.

Tara Brown, Modern Matron, said: “This is an exciting time to come to work for our Trust as we are focusing strongly and enthusiastically on quality improvement and implementing positive changes.

“Most of our services in East Suffolk have vacancies but even where that is not the case, the recruitment day will still be an opportunity for people to learn about services should they be interested when openings do arise.”

NSFT has four inpatient teams based at its Woodlands unit on the site of Ipswich Hospital and three multi-disciplinary Integrated Delivery Teams (IDTs) in East Suffolk providing community-based care which work across the age ranges from child and family to later life.

In addition, there is a Learning Disabilities Intensive Support Team which works with service users and their carers in their home environment, and acute inpatient care is provided to people with a learning disability and mental health needs in Walker Close, Ipswich.

* Anyone who is interested in working for NSFT in East Suffolk but who is unable to attend the recruitment fair at Ipswich Corn Exchange on Thursday (7 June) should contact Tara Brown for further information. Tel 01473 891762; email
