    If the answer to the previous question is ‘No’; from time to time we offer sponsorship to nurses who are eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, and who have the correct documentation in place to come to the UK to work as a nurse. However we do NOT offer sponsorship to care assistants and would therefore ask that you do not apply if you are looking to work as a Care Assistant and require sponsorship.

    Please tell us more about your last 3 roles - your job title, the name of the company you worked for and the dates that you were employed. Please also upload your CV.
