Director of Workforce and Organisational Development at Torbay & South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, Judy Falcao said:

We are looking for final year adult nursing students, Registered Nurses and Nurses wanting to return to practice who want to contribute to our vision of providing compassionate nursing.

“We are looking for individuals to participate in rotations through different areas within the Trust. The rotation programme gives you the chance to experience different nursing specialties, teams and environments whilst providing you with a toolkit of core and specialised skills.

Working for our Trust offers a diverse range of career paths and we offer support and development opportunities to help our staff in their career choices.

For adult student nurses who are looking for their first job, we provide an outstanding preceptorship programme, with support from a mentor and supervisor, and many opportunities for further training and development in their role in an innovative and supportive environment.

I would encourage as many nurses and student nurses to come along and find out more about the fantastic opportunities available within our Trust.

We have a number of nursing options you may wish to consider and you will have the opportunity to have an interview. If successful, we will be offering positions within the Trust on the day.
