Attendees will be given a tour of the hospitals, meet the nursing teams and learn about the available roles in Leicester’s hospitals. Interested candidates should bring their CVs as interviews will be taking place and conditional job offers given to successful candidates.

Elsewhere in the country, Northampton General is to host its own recruitment day on 2 February from 10am to 2pm.
