Job overview

Autumn Nursing, ODP and Midwifery Exhibition 

Saturday 15th October  

 Newly Qualifying and Student Nurses 

 So, you’re eager to learn more about nursing at North Bristol NHS Trust. Here are some of the reasons you should attend our biggest engagement day of the year… 

  • You’ll have a unique opportunity to network with nurses, matrons, and senior staff and learn more about North Bristol NHS Trust through presentations delivered by our teams. 
  • You’ll tour our £450 million Brunel Building, take a look at our wards, Medirooms, and theatres, in which we achieve excellent outcomes including some of the highest trauma survival rates in the country in ICU, and operate as a Major Trauma Centre. 
  • You could walk away with an interview and job offer on the same day, as we schedule afternoon interview slots with various teams. 
  • Learn more about our award-winning Health and Wellbeing programme, our robust and supportive preceptorship, and take the chance to sign up to our bank (featuring competitive pay rates for flexible shifts). 

Main duties of the job

Once you’re here for our engagement day, you’ll learn our Trust itself is pioneering, progressive and proud. For example… 

  • Health and wellbeing initiatives, devised by our dedicated staff wellbeing team, encompass lifestyle,physical and psychological support, and have been nationally recognised by REBA. 
  • Our nurses do not shy away from a challenge in aid of Southmead Hospital Charity. They cycle, run, row and race in aid of a fantastic cause.
  • We’re committed to supporting staff on their career journey with us offering personalised training packages and bespoke speciality rotations. We also support internal transfers for those who wish to gain experience in a new speciality or further develop their skills. 
  • Our staff are consulted on equity issues across the Trust within equality and development groups and are given the mentoring and support to succeed. Our Trust supports the development of Bristol’s LGBT+ manifesto and a case study of good practice has been reported to NHS England in response to a government review of public services and Trans people. 
  • Our clinical environment is award-winning in its approach to healthcare design; each patient room has a view, many of which are naturally ventilated. With nurses in mind, our clinical spine carefully separates staff and patient areas, with a generous staff canteen extending out to a rooftop terrace.
  • Bristol is consistently voted the best place to live in the UK, with vibrant local music, arts and gastronomic scenes. 

Working for our organisation

North Bristol NHS Trust employs over 12,000 staff providing healthcare to the residents of Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset from our award-winning hospital building at Southmead. We are the regional Major Trauma Centre, and an internationally recognised centre of excellence in a range of services and major specialities. Our vision is that by enabling our teams to be the best that they can be, we will provide exceptional healthcare, personally delivered.

North Bristol NHS Trust values all people as individuals. We aim to be an anti-discriminatory organisation and are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. We welcome applicants from all underrepresented groups.

Bristol is consistently voted the best place to live in the UK, with vibrant local music, arts and gastronomic scenes, a wide range of modern and state of the art shopping, recreation and leisure facilities, a wealth of great local family days out, fantastic transport links for local, national and international holidays, and it has a rich history.
