Nurses seeking new opportunities urged to attend recruitment open day

Qualified nurses are being urged to attend a recruitment open day being held to fill over 40 roles in care homes across the south Wales valleys and M4 corridor.

Hallmark Care Homes, a family-run provider of care homes across the UK, has a number of nursing vacancies available across seven of its properties in Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, Bridgend, Pontypridd, Maesteg and Merthyr Tydfil.

The firm is holding a recruitment open day, in partnership with Yolk Recruitment, in Cardiff on the 16th and 17th of October 2018.

Potential recruits will be able to learn about the various roles available and be interviewed on site, leading to a job offer on the day if successful, subject to compliance checks.

Hallmark Care Homes is urging Registered General Nurses, Registered Mental Health Nurses and Registered Nurses for Learning Disabilities looking for new opportunities to attend.

The roles benefit from pay above the award rate, at between £16.50 and £18 an hour, state-of-the-art facilities, 30 days of annual leave, full private health and dental care and a pension.

Sam Branch, Recruitment and Project Co-ordinator, from Hallmark Care Homes said:

“Our commitment to providing the highest quality care to our residents means we are expanding as a business, as demand for our services grows.

“Our focus is on building independence for our residents and ensuring that they have all of the support they need to nurture current and future relationships. Dedicated, well-trained staff are central to that vision. With a serious shortage of nursing skills in the labour market, we are keen to attract the very best talent and reward them well for their hard work.

“Our recruitment open day will allow nurses looking for new opportunities to find out more about our work providing care services to vulnerable people across south Wales, and about the specific roles we have on offer.”

Kate Turner, Business Manager for Healthcare with Yolk Recruitment said:

“Statistics show that nurses are leaving the NHS faster than new recruits are being brought in, but often these nurses don’t want to leave the profession altogether. The expansion of Hallmark Care Homes across south Wales is a fantastic opportunity for caring, qualified nurses to practice in a supportive, rewarding environment and we anticipate there being a lot of interest in these roles.”

Registered nurses interested in attending the event, which will be held at The Shell in Anchor Court, Cardiff, should contact Kate Turner on 02921 673722 or [email protected]. Attendees are advised to take along ID including passport, drivers’ licence birth certificate, two forms of proof of address dated within the last three months.
