Staff and Recruitment

Recruitment This brand new purpose-built facility will provide excellent working conditions for staff. Continuous education and development will also be  actively encouraged and supported.   We are now actively recruiting a wide range of staff including trained nursing staff, nursing and care assistants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, therapy support workers as well as clerical and secretarial staff.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be part of the new team at Rowanbank Clinic  – vacancies are posted at NHS Scotland Recruitment.

Staff development
The Directorate is committed to the concept of lifelong learning, delivered within the ethos of a learning organisation. The staff are assisted in delivering the core business of the Directorate through robust induction, a comprehensive patient needs led training plan, and a specific competency based framework.

 

Impact on local economy and job opportunities

When the new Rowanbank Clinic is fully operational it will employ more than 300 staff. This will not only help boost the local economy through the increased business generated for local shops and facilities but will also increase job opportunities for local people.

Rowanbank will employ mental health staff such as nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists and occupational therapists as well as a wide range of support staff including nursing assistants, porters, catering assistants, cleaners and safety staff.  Many of these new frontline posts are expected to be filled by local people including those living in the Springburn, Balornock, Kirkintilloch and Bishopbriggs areas.


The recruitment drive is being taken forward on a phased basis and so far during the first phase more than 20 local people have secured new jobs at Rowanbank – these include support service staff, nursing assistants and safety staff. Over the next 18 months there will be further job opportunities for local people as we continue to recruit a wide range of staff including nurses, administrative staff and support staff.  These posts will be advertised in the local press and job centres.  A number of recruitment open days have already been held at Kirkintilloch and Springburn job centres and further events are planned over the next 18 months.
