Commitment to its young workforce has helped NHS Golden Jubilee retain the Investors in Young People Gold award.
Investors in Young People helps employers harness the creativity and skills of young people and measures good practice in recruiting, retaining and developing them.
The first NHS Scotland organisation to receive the award when it was first accredited in 2017, NHS Golden Jubilee has maintained the Gold accreditation by fully integrating the management of young people into its business practices.
NHS Golden Jubilee has built relationships with the local schools and colleges to give young people the opportunity to carry out work experience across different areas.
They also support the young workforce of the future and our local community by providing hospital work placements for young people wanting to apply to university to become doctors.
Elaine Barr, Recruitment Manager, said: “NHS Golden Jubilee’s inclusive policies and procedures ensure that we can continue to include and involve staff of all ages in everything that we do.
"The Investors in Young People programme provides an excellent framework to recognise our efforts in this area and enables us to continuously measure, improve and develop our approach to equality for all, no matter what your age may be.
“We are delighted that our commitment to supporting our young workforce has been recognised yet again with retaining the Investor in Young People Gold award.”
Last year, NHS Golden Jubilee received recognition from West Dunbartonshire Council for its commitment to the Schools Employability Skills Programme, which supports students wishing to follow a career in medicine or nursing.
This year we were a finalist in West Dunbartonshire’s Working 4Business awards for our work in Developing the Young Workforce.
