Career Zone

Whether you are on the lookout for a waged job, or just want to volunteer, you may like to know that a new Career Zone has been opened at Bath’s Royal United Hospital to showcase the wide range of opportunities available at the hospital and the fantastic benefits of working for the NHS.

The new area in the main entrance is being launched with two upcoming recruitment events, promoting rewarding roles in the cleaning and catering departments.

The Career Zone is also a space where people can stop by at any time to browse the display of current job opportunities.

Alfredo Thompson, Director for People and Culture, said: “The RUH offers such a variety of career opportunities, including both clinical and non-clinical roles, and our new Career Zone is a great way for us to share these opportunities with the people in our community.

“At the RUH we’re proud to put people at the heart of what we do, working together as one team to make a difference for our patients, each other, and our community. No matter what your role is, we value everyone’s contribution and we have well-established development programmes to help you achieve your career goals.”

The hospital will host an event for cleaning roles on Monday 21 November, 10am – 3pm, and catering roles on Tuesday 29 November, 10am – 3pm. People can drop-in at any time on these days to find out more about the vacancies, hear from current RUH staff who work in these areas and have a tour of the departments.

Philip Watson, Head of Facilities, said: “Cleaners and caterers are at the heart of the NHS, making sure our environment is clean and safe, and that we provide high quality fresh and nutritious food and drink.

“We have a number of opportunities in these departments at the RUH and all roles offer a mix of hours so they can work around your lifestyle. Our supportive teams provide full training on the job and will be happy to answer any questions you might have at our events in November.”

The Career Zone will also provide information about the range of volunteering opportunities at the hospital and will be a place for existing staff to find out more about training and development opportunities.
