Registration open now for NHS Mental Health, Learning Disability and Autism Trusts online recruitment event

Posted on: 15 November 2023

NHS Mental Health, Learning Disability and Autism Trusts in West Yorkshire are holding the last in the 2023 series of online recruitment events aimed at getting people from all backgrounds and communities into work with them. The fair is taking place on 23 November.

The online fair is being managed by local community organisation Touchstone, who have a team working with the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership and the Trusts to help people into jobs by providing services such as screening, advice, and employability support. 

People can register now, free of charge at West Yorkshire NHS Mental Health Trusts Virtual Recruitment Event ( The fair opens at 9:45am and closes at 4.30pm.

Emilie Akselsen from Touchstone said:

“The fair is a big event open to all, and we want to encourage as many people as possible from all over West Yorkshire to join us online and talk to us about their ambitions and interests. We want to meet people who have the skills we need, but experience and qualifications are not as important as a caring personality. The Trusts can provide all the training that is needed to get started and build a great career in the local mental health, learning disability and autism sector.”

Sonya Robertshaw, Project Lead for the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership said:

“This is the fourth and final event in this 2023 series, so we want to encourage people to come along, no commitment necessary, just register and see what we have to offer. A career in health and care can be for the long term, people can develop at their own pace, working in a place local to them.”
