Southend University Hospital is currently recruiting for more top-notch nurses to join its workforce.

Registered nurses are invited to apply by Sunday, March 18 for posts in certain specific areas including orthopaedics, cardiac care, infectious diseases and elderly care. Suitable applicants will then be invited to an assessment day on Thursday, April 5 to learn more about the jobs and the working environment.

Posts on offer include permanent, fixed term and bank contracts and are both full-time and part-time. Nurses with children will be able to take advantage of the on-site Ladybird Nursery.

Sue Hardy, director of nursing, said: "We are actively recruiting for front-line staff in these specific areas to ensure we can provide excellent patient care without having to resort to costly agency nurses.

 "Those attending the assessment day will be able to meet some of our nursing staff to hear first-hand what it is like to work atSouthendUniversityHospital."

The hospital is recognised by the Care Quality Commission for its quality of services and recently hosted a visit by health minister Anne Milton MP who praised staff for their commitment to improving patient care."

Trained nurses who would like to hear more about the situations vacant are asked to contact Anne Pearce on 01702 508018 or email anne.pearce@southend.nhs.uk
