A free national virtual radiography recruitment fair for students

The event is taking place January 25

Published: 22 January 2021 Students

Trusts from across the UK will be coming together for a free, live, online diagnostic radiography recruitment fair.

It is the only national recruitment event for radiographers in the UK, which began in 2017.

Hosted by The University of Leeds Imaging department, the fair will give students an opportunity to see what’s available to them.

Taking place on 25 January, the event can be accessed via Eventbrite.

No preparation for the event is required, and anyone who registers through Eventbrite will receive links to presentations, videos and contact details from the recruiters on the day.

If you cannot make the event, sign up via Eventbrite to receive all the above materials.

While most of the Trusts are based in England there is an opportunity for students to get to find out about new locations and Trusts.

This year 3rd year students, Eleanor Martin, Holly Waudby, Adam January and Kieron Fox, helped with the event.

Adam January and Kieron Fox are also hosting a series of webinars for current and potential radiography students.

Helen Harcus, Programme Lead for Diagnostic Radiography at the University of Leeds, who organises the event, said, she hopes students gain: ‘A sense of what it is like to work at different Trusts, what they can offer from shift patterns to promotions and potential opportunities. It’s for students who have not heard of a Trust to find out where they are located and what it is like to live and work in that area. And, for students to find out when jobs will be released by Trusts and where they will be advertised.
