New decade, new job? If you are looking for a new role or advice on how to successfully develop your career, the RCNi Nursing and Careers Jobs Fairs are for you.

Back for 2020 with our most exciting and comprehensive programme yet, our first event kicks off on 6 February at Manchester United football ground where 50 top nursing and healthcare employers from across the UK will be looking to recruit staff.

Attend CPD-accredited seminars that can help you in your job hunt 

Our CPD-accredited seminars and workshops are returning, with the packed seminar programme for Manchester including sessions on how to prepare and succeed at interview, ensuring your CV and supporting statement are up to scratch, and resilience in nursing.

Visitors to our interactive workshops will hear about the value of a good preceptorship programme, why general practice nursing can be a great first career choice for newly qualified nurses, and what a day in the life of a forensic nurse looks like.

The lunchtime panel talks are also returning and will focus on the recruitment and retention issues facing the nursing profession today. The senior nurses who take part in the discussions have a wealth of knowledge and experience they are keen to share.

As well as offering practical advice on what employers are looking for in nurses and how to make sure an organisation is the right fit for you, there will be a focus on maintaining your health and well-being and how to raise concerns in the workplace.
