  • Vacancies within the NHS
  • Non direct patient care vacancies (such as catering, cleaning, maintenance, gardening roles) across health and care organisations

Visitors to the event may get the opportunity to be interviewed for jobs and other opportunities on the day.

The event will also provide an opportunity for employers to find out more about apprenticeships, student placements and other initiatives to support their workplace.

Sarah Coltman-Lovell, Place Director at York Health and Care Partnership said “We are delighted to be able to support providers to come together to showcase the varied opportunities, as well as the support available for people to achieve core English and Maths grades.

“We are supporting anyone who is interested to find a role right for them.   With over 250 different roles and apprenticeships, there is something for everyone, including roles where no experience or qualifications are needed.

“If you’re looking for work where the time flies, where you can truly make a difference, with job variety and job security should you want it – then you’ve come to the right place!”

Councillor Jo Coles, City of York Council’s Executive Member for Health, Wellbeing and Adult Social Care said,  

“Our social care workforce is so important to York residents and we are grateful and hugely appreciative of everyone working in the sector.  We know many look at careers in health and social care following their own lived experience or because they know someone working in the sector and hope more residents will want to find out more about the jobs and training available to people of all ages across the city.”

No prior appointment or booking is required, and anyone who wishes to attend can simply turn up on the day of the event.
