New Year, New Nursing Career: Get a Head Start on 2023

There are plenty of reasons to want a new job to kick off the new year; salary, benefits, responsibilities. A new job could also pave the way for more career growth. If you're at all unhappy with your current role, that's reason enough to look elsewhere. If you're stuck in a dead-end role, the sooner you bust out of it, the more progress you can make, and there are lots of opportunities to be had.

If you're serious about starting off 2023 with a new job, the the time to start your search is now. People tend to take time off around the Christmas holidays so you may find that job listings slow down. Even if listings don't slow down, interviews might! Simply because the people who need to conduct them and make decisions are out of the office. As such, it pays to get ahead of the holiday season by kicking off your job search as soon as possible!

We’ve outlined the steps to consider for making the move in 2023:

CV Writing

Another hurdle to overcome: "Do I have to update my CV, or start it from scratch?" – Not to fear, we can guide you and do this for you! We have laid out a step to step process on writing the BEST Nursing CV!

Begin the Process Now - Start Later

Pre-employment takes a number of weeks to complete, including Garda Vetting, Medical and New Starter Forms. As well as a notice period to consider. All clients are recruiting now for a January or February start in 2023 so no need to wait!

Dreading Those Interview Nerves?

Not to worry, we offer free interview preparation. Whether that's a face to face meeting, video call or phone call. We can do this before your interview date at a time that suits you, including weekends or late nights; we can accommodate your current working schedule.

Still Unsure if You Want to Make the Move?

Some hot jobs for 2023 we see coming through the pipeline:

  • Practice Nurse roles are highly coveted at the moment and we are currently recruiting for these roles in Dublin City Centre. We also see a higher demand coming through in the New Year.
  • Community roles are also very popular at the moment, with the Public Health Nursing team and these positions are available Monday to Friday with all shifts hours considered including set days and shorter working patterns.
  • As well as that we have a lot of Hospital Settings that are willing to step away from the normal overnight shifts patterns and will look into day shifts only, including some with No weekend work!
