Nursing news: a new recruitment site & Florence Nightingale Foundation scholarships

Priory's new recruitment website is now up and running. The site features stories from nurses who work at Priory as well as an updated recruitment brochure.

Our new website outlines thoroughly the pros and cons; the highs and lows of mental health nursing. We recognise how demanding a vocation being a Mental Health Nurse is, but we also know how fulfilling it can be. If you're interested in joining our team, please enquire.

Pre-employment process

If you're unsure about what the pre-employment process entails, take a moment to read what one of our recent recruits had to say about their experience:

"I would like to express my sincere thanks to Emma and her team for assisting me during my pre-employment process for The Priory Group.

From the onset, the experience has been smooth and friendly. Too many times I have been approached by recruitment agencies in an almost aggressive manner, but Katrina's initial contact was friendly and speculative.

Once I had expressed an interest in working for The Priory, Emma co-ordinated the interview and pre-employment checks. She followed up for results and was very open with advice. Her friendly manner demonstrated sincerity and she was able to answer any little queries that I had.

I feel that Emma and her team are a valuable resource for recruitment and I'm very grateful for her support and guidance."

Priory is committed to supporting both its existing and potential staff every step of the way, so there is no need to worry about the process.

Florence Nightingale Foundation

The Florence Nightingale Foundation has scholarships available for nurses in all areas of care. Of particular interest are applications for the below areas:

  • long term conditions
  • end of life care
  • improving the service user experience or their dignity, health or wellbeing
  • enhancing clinical leadership.

The scholarships are an excellent way for nurses to network, learn and innovate. To apply, find out more online.
