NHS Interactive Careers Fayre

      Friday 7 June 2019, 10.00pm - 2.00pm

      Kerrydale Suite, Celtic Park, Glasgow G40 3RE

DYW Glasgow are delighted to be collaborating with NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde to deliver an interactive careers fayre this 7th of June at Celtic Park’s Kerrydale Suite.  This event will look to showcase the huge variety of career opportunities available within the NHS and their various operational departments and also looks to dispel some of the myths around what a career in the NHS could look like.

Did you know for example that of the 44,000 people in employment with NHSGGC, only 20% work in a medical capacity?  That means that 35,000 people work as Engineers, Porters, Administrative Assistants, Facilities Assistants and much more.  It is estimated that the NHSGGC will require one in every 7 school leavers to work there in order to sustain operations and that is before you take Brexit into consideration and the shortfall of migrant labour so it is an exciting time to be considering a career in the NHS.

This is an excellent opportunity for pupils, Teachers and Careers Advisors to find out more about apprenticeships and other roles and also to take part in interactive workshops which will allow them to try their hand with some of the medical and technological equipment that is operated daily.
