Our estates and facilities department held their first recruitment open day at Kendray Hospital in Barnsley on Thursday 25 January.
The event was a great success with over 200 people arriving to explore the various career, training and development opportunities available within our Trust’s estates and facilities team.
Colleagues from the recruitment department were also available to offer application and interview advice, with attendees given the opportunity to chat and ask questions to existing members of staff about their specific areas of interest. Attendees could even apply for jobs and interview onsite.
The event was also attended by the local Job Centre and attendees benefitted 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.”
