The event will take place on Tuesday, 7 June from 5-6.30pm.
It will provide information about vacancies on offer in district nursing and community hospital teams which provide vital services for local residents.
Roles available will involve supporting elderly, disabled and vulnerable people to stay independent in their own homes or be cared for in their local community hospital.
“Whether you’re an experienced band 5 nurse looking to make a move, or just starting out your band 5 career journey, we understand you’ll want to find the right role, ward or community team and, ultimately, the best fit where you can develop and shape your nursing career,” said Alison Tallant, locality manager at the Trust.
“We share your passion for nursing and your desire to give patients the very best possible care. If you are considering applying, I would say to absolutely do it. As a CQC ‘outstanding’ rated Trust, you’ll be working with a strong team to help develop your career – the possibilities are endless.
“And if anyone you know is thinking of relocating to Dorset for the roles available, please tell them about the event. We offer a generous relocation package of up to £10,000 or up to £500 towards rent for the first three months, subject to HMRC guidelines.”
Anneka Moxom, District Nurse Team Lead for West Dorset, said: “Having the one-on-one time with your patient to really get to know them in a district nursing or community hospital nursing role is invaluable, and one of the biggest differences I noticed when coming from an acute hospital setting.
“For me, it is an honour to be a guest in someone’s home, providing acute clinical skills and treatments. We are the wards without any walls.
“I can honestly say I have never dreaded coming to work, and I thoroughly enjoy being around everyone, both staff and patients. The saying ‘do a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life’ is exactly how I feel working for Dorset HealthCare.”
