Our team stole the show at the Nursing Times Careers Live event in Bristol on Saturday March 24.

Sue Smith, Deputy Chief Operating Officer, led a team of enthusiastic and engaging nurses from all our directorates, promoting Devon Partnership Trust as a great place to work and highlighting nurse training and development along both clinical and management pathways.

Hayley Smith, Liaison Psychiatry Exeter Clinical Team Leader, and Ben Broad, Staff Nurse, Secure Services, were star speakers on stage speaking about their personal journey from student placements through to qualified staff and the opportunities available to them. They were joined by an interviewing team including John Lilley, Tammy Jones, Andy Feakes, Georgie Jones and Alex Leigh, with superb support from Chile Clemence and Maria Jackson.

Jenni Middleton, Editor, Nursing Times said: “It was fantastic to once again host a sea of green at our Nursing Times Careers Live event in Bristol this weekend. Devon Partnership Trust attend our events en masse and with huge amounts of energy and gusto. It’s clear that they are proud of where they live and work, and that enthusiasm is infectious as they sign up quite a few new recruits every time they exhibit at our career development events. Of course it was fabulous to have them on stage, discussing their preceptorship programme and the opportunities available at their trust. I was also pleased to see many of them join in with the Zumba session at lunchtime. They’re a great crowd of nurses, and I am always pleased to host them at our events.” 

The team were also showing the videos displayed on our new recruitment microsite.
