A host of midwifery and nursing opportunities across the Black Country will be showcased at a recruitment event this spring.
The Black Country Local Maternity and Neonatal System (LMNS) has organised the session at West Bromwich Albion’s ground at The Hawthorns, to run between 9am and 2pm on Wednesday 3 May.
It is open to:
- Midwives – Bands 5 and 6
- Nurses – Band 5
- Qualified in Specialty (QIS) Nurses – Band 6
- Return to practice Midwives
- Nurses interested in completing a shortened course to become Midwives
Local universities will be promoting the courses they run for those returning to midwifery and the shortened midwifery courses as well as post graduate training for Advanced Clinical Practitioners, Tongue Tie Practitioners and sexual health courses.
This event follows last year’s first joint recruitment event across the LMNS for NHS Trusts in Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton which was the first of its kind across the Black Country ICS (Integrated Care Service).
Lucy Murcott, LMNS Workforce Lead, said 15 Midwives had been recruited to work across Black Country hospital and community services at the last event.
“Everyone who attended gave us feedback about how helpful it was to them to be able to speak to existing staff, find out more about some of the specific projects and service improvements across the Trusts and be interviewed that day for roles,” she said.
“So we’re doing it all over again in May and broadening our focus to ensure we highlight the shortened midwifery courses available to Nurses as well as the range of roles that QIS Nurses may be interested in.
“The Black Country is a fantastic place to work and all of our Trusts are looking forward to warmly welcoming potential new recruits this spring.”
