Local people are invited to attend a careers event hosted by NHS Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to find out more about NHS commissioning and to consider a career in the NHS.

The event will take place on Tuesday 26 June from 4.30pm until 6.30pm at the CCG’s offices in South Plaza, Marlborough Street, Bristol. It offers potential applicants the opportunity to speak to staff members informally about a variety of vacancies and be in a stronger position to put in a winning application.

Julia Ross, Chief Executive of NHS Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire CCG, said: "We’re delighted to be recruiting for a range of entry-level vacancies where successful applicants can be part of the organisation that shapes health services for local people. As a CCG, we’re the NHS organisation responsible for planning, designing and monitoring health services for the 950,000 people who live in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire."

It’s a very special year for us to be hiring because the NHS celebrates its 70th birthday on 5 July. Come and find out about the vacancies we’re currently recruiting to and why NHS commissioning could be a great step for your career.

The CCG is based in a newly refurbished and modern office environment in central Bristol with excellent public transport links. It also has one of the most competitive and flexible benefits packages on offer by any employer in the UK, including a generous annual leave entitlement and flexible working opportunities.

Staff working in different departments from finance and contracts through to IT and communications will be there in person to share their experiences of working in the NHS. 

"There’s so much work that goes on behind-the-scenes to keep the NHS running, and that includes supporting programme management and a large workforce of administrators and other roles that don’t require any clinical skills or experience, but offer an excellent opportunity to start or continue your career with the NHS,” continued Ross. “We recognise the value that high-quality support services contribute to delivering the best possible health and social care services to local people and we have invested in a variety of new and exciting posts to increase administration capacity across our organisation."

The CCG will provide application forms at the event to encourage people to apply for roles within the organisation and to help it fill some of the vacancies that it currently has following a recent restructure.

Ross added: "This is a great opportunity for local people to be part of the team shaping better health across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. We have high ambitions for our new organisation and we’re looking for people with enthusiasm, commitment and passion for good healthcare to join us."This is a great opportunity for local people to be part of the team shaping better health across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
