Join our NHS family
Column by Karen Gates, recruitment team leader, ULHT
Anyone with experience working in the NHS will tell you it’s unlike working anywhere else.
Through the good, the bad and the ugly; your colleagues are like family.
That’s why we invited members of the public to a recruitment event on Wednesday 13 February – so we could give people an insight to what it’s like to work at Grantham and District Hospital.
We were delighted to see so many people with a real interest in working for United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT), and even more so to hear that a lot had decided to apply for a job at the hospital. More than 30 people came along to the event and it was clear that they all had a passion for wanting to make a difference to people’s lives – a really important quality for anyone wanting to work in our organisation.
It was great to hear that we are an employer of choice for people in Grantham and the surrounding areas. Whether you’ve been out of work for a while, looking for a career change and or live to care for people – we can offer a way of working and a career pathway that suits you.
Although there’s a shortage of healthcare staff across the country, it’s important we try to fill all of the vacancies at our hospitals. It’s not easy, but events like these are a great way for anyone interested in working at the hospital to come take a look around, meet the staff and see what the ULHT team is all about.
Here at Grantham, our staff are all about working closely together and creating a homely feel for people who need to come in or visit the hospital. Whether you work in the kitchen, theatres or on a reception – we all play a part in caring for our patients and getting them home and well as soon as possible.
We look forward to holding more of these events in the future and if you couldn’t make it on Wednesday, all our vacancies across the Trust are available online at www.ulh.nhs.uk/jobs/vacancies
