Find out more about a career in mental health
25/07/2016

​Representatives from the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT) will be promoting career opportunities within the Trust and how rewarding they can be at a Jobs Fair later this week (Wednesday 27 July).

A number of clinicians will be on hand to offer information and advice about a career in nursing with the NSFT, as well as other health-related roles such as occupational therapy. Anyone thinking about a career in mental health are encouraged to come to NSFT’s stand at The Forum in Norwich between 10am and 2pm to find out more.

Leigh Howlett, Director of Strategy & Resources for NSFT, said: “Within the Trust we work with adults, older people, children and young people, in many different settings such as in the community, people’s homes or on our wards. Often people don’t realise that in addition to nurses, we employ other professionals such as occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and speech and language therapists.

“We will be showcasing what we have to offer people as a career within our Trust is extremely rewarding and our focus at the event is to promote how worthwhile a career in mental health can be.

“We are looking for people from a variety of backgrounds that may already work in mental or physical health, and are also keen to talk to those who may not have previously considered a career in this area as there are a number of therapeutic staff and healthcare assistant vacancies available across the Trust that do not require a nursing qualification.”

For student nurses who want to ‘earn while you learn’. You can join the NHS as Mental Health Care Support Workers for NSFT through NHS professionals. They offer weekly pay, first choice of available shifts, paid annual leave, flexible working hours around your studies and access to the NHSP Stakeholder Pension Plan.
