AIREDALE Hospital is staging its first-ever virtual nurse recruitment event – giving registered and student nurses the chance to ‘walk away' with a conditional job offer.

The online event takes place on Tuesday (Aug 11), between 3pm and 4.30pm.

Anyone interested needs to register in advance, at

The event will open with an introduction from the director of nursing and participants will then move into different 'rooms' based on their areas of interest.

Job opportunities are available across various nursing specialisms and areas including cardio respiratory, stroke/rehabilitation, trauma and orthopaedics, general surgery, elderly medicine, community and paediatrics.

Annie McCluskey, head of nursing at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, said: "We’re excited to be hosting our first virtual recruitment event, making it easier than ever for people to find out about a nursing career here at Airedale.

"It will be a great opportunity for people to chat to our senior nurses and find out why Airedale is such a fantastic place to work. We’ll be doing online interviews so people could come away with an actual offer of employment. We are looking for superb nurses who will work with us to achieve our shared aim, and have the absolute desire of providing the very best care to our local population."
