The Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust is happy to announce that our work with Greater Manchester Integrated Care to get local people into employment has been shortlisted for the national 2023 HSJ Awards.
The shortlisting for “Workforce Initiative of the Year”, recognises our work to bring innovation into our workforce development and breaking down the traditional barriers to create an adaptable workforce that delivers quality and efficiency.
A lot of work has gone into the series of special events aimed at giving local job seekers the opportunity to explore a wide range of health and care opportunities under one roof with partners from across the organisation and Greater Manchester (GM) coming together to make them happen.
The latest series of events attracted interest from over 1000 people in the Bury, Rochdale, Oldham and Salford area and enabled our teams to showcase a wide range of exciting employment opportunities, grow awareness of NHS careers and recruit directly on the day.
Donna Mclaughlin, Director of Social Value Creation said,
“I am beyond proud of everyone from across the NCA who came together to make these local events happen including colleagues from recruitment, workforce, learning and development teams and line managers from the care organisations. The events were so successful because of the engagement of other health and social care employers and support organisations including local Further Education (FE) colleges, Department for Works and Pensions (DWP) and our local authority colleagues.
Being shortlisted for an HSJ award is a great honour and with we also have to say thank you to GM Integrated Care, clinical and community services as well as our partner organisations. Through our work together, hundreds of people have been able to leave our local events with a job, or a plan for a job and a future in health and social care.”
The selected HSJ winners will be announced during the awards ceremony at Evolution London on November 16th, 2023.
