“Our staff are what makes us one of the best employers in the region.” That’s the key message from a new recruitment video driven by our education team.
Our educators are sharing the video to reach out to schools and colleges in response to the pandemic.
Working with the Trust’s communications and marketing team, the service has produced the first of a series of videos focussing on different career opportunities across the organisation.
The team would normally regularly visit young people in education settings but has not been able to do so since the COVID-19 outbreak.

North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust is one of the biggest employers in the area.
We have two hospitals – University Hospital of North Tees and the University Hospital of Hartlepool. We also have a community hospital in Peterlee and a number of community hubs.
Our staff are what makes our hospital and our community services amongst the very best in the region and we work hard to make sure our staff enjoy their working time here too.
We do well every year in the NHS staff survey, with a high percentage of our colleagues telling us they would recommend North Tees and Hartlepool as a place to work and a place to be cared for as a patient.
We want to ensure we are ready for the future and for the health care demands of Teesside. And you could be a part of that.
Our nursing team is one of the most ambitious and progressive in the country and this is because of the dedication and willingness of everyone to focus on what matters most – our patients.
Nursing is a diverse and exciting career, from fitting casts and orthopaedics to saving lives in accident and emergency. Every day is a new challenge.
If you take a career at North Tees and Hartlepool, you will become part of a community that’s about growing and learning, driving and making real differences to patients across the region.
Our trust is a family. We support one another to achieve our goals and ambitions and to ensure our patients are at the heart of everything we do.
Education and our future workforce
Suzanne Coyle-Watson, non-clinical educator, said: “We are passionate about finding the next generation of NHS staff.
“One of our ways of doing this is visiting our local primary and secondary schools and our further education colleges. Unfortunately this just has not been possible over the last few months.
“These videos are our way of reaching out to these young people in a virtual way.
“This is a fantastic organisation to work for. We are here for our patients and are making life-changing differences to people across our community.
“And what many young people don’t always realise is what a diverse place this is to work, in careers we offer and the workforce we have. There are hundreds of different job roles in a health trust like ours.
“We encourage people to develop and to make an impact in their roles.
“My advice to any young person thinking of what to do in their career would be. Speak to us and find out what we have to offer.”
