Virtual recruitment fair aims to boost healthcare workforce in real terms

The Virtual Essex Primary Care Skills Show & Job Fair is set to bring primary care practices and healthcare professionals together digitally

GPs, Nurses and Clinical Support healthcare professionals are set to log on to the first-ever Virtual Essex Primary Care Skills Show & Job Fair to learn more about working within primary care and meet practices on Thursday 26th November.

The digital event, run by Essex Primary Care Careers, offers clinical professionals and medical students the chance to listen to key note speakers on relevant CPD topics, interact directly with the primary care workforce about a career in the sector and virtually meet with local primary care employers currently recruiting.

Attendees can take advantage of a fantastic speaker programme throughout the day, as well as explore virtual booths, live chat with exhibitors and network with speakers and other primary care professionals. They will be able to browse a digital job board and share their CV with recruiters instantly, access an amazing range of resources and careers advice, and much more.

Harriet Cadman, Recruitment and Marketing Project Manager at Essex Primary Care Careers, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for healthcare professionals to learn a lot about the opportunities awaiting them in primary care; all from the comfort of their homes.”

“It’s a huge pleasure to be able to host our first virtual fair, as we look to keep primary care at the top of the agenda.”
