NEU Professionals is coming back to Africa and we're bringing new friends!

After the amazing success of our award-nominated recruitment event in Botswana earlier this year, we couldn’t get Africa off our minds. Our hosts were so friendly and accommodating, and we met so many wonderful qualified candidates. Many of these candidates have already arrived in the UK and are beginning their careers as NHS nurses.

As many of you requested, we are coming back to even more countries, and this time we are bringing another prestigious NHS Trust with us; North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT). Servicing the north-east region of London and into Essex region, this trust has many opportunities for candidates to advance their careers and discover this beautiful and historical region of the UK. We look forward to meeting you at one of our three  interview locations!
