Letter: Recruitment campaign is paying dividends

Recruitment campaign
Recruitment campaign

Our nursing home’s recruitment campaign offering new nurse recruits a free holiday in the sun before they start work, is already paying dividends.

Saint Cecilia’s Nursing Home in Scarborough launched its new golden hello package on Saturday during Care Home Open Day and has already got half a dozen potential candidates.

The welcome package offers the holiday plus a car, a £31,000 a year salary and other benefits for new registered nurses.

The package really seems to have caught the imagination and we have already got some candidates lined up for interview just a few days into the campaign.

We’ve been really pleased with the response .

I think those who are applying are pleased to see an employer going the extra mile to attract good applicants during the current recruitment crisis.

Saint Cecilia’s provides nursing care for up to 44 residents with acute and life-limiting illnesses.
