MORE than 200 people attended an NHS recruitment fair at Kendray Hospital last week.

Taking place last Thursday, the event saw colleagues from the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Trust on hand to offer application and interview advice to those in attendance.

The event was also attended by the local Job Centre and attendees benefited from advice and support from Job Centre representatives to complete ‘better off calculations’ for anyone claiming benefits.

Karen Hinch, head of facilities for the trust said: “The event has allowed the estates and facilities teams to showcase their areas and the career paths and training opportunities available, including catering, housekeeping, transport, portering, electrician, plumber, health and safety and fire advisor.

“Everyone involved feels the recruitment event has been a huge success with more than 200 people in attendance, which far exceeded our own expectations.

“Thank you to all the team that helped organise this event.”
