Staff Nurse

As a young man, staff nurse Jade Orero had ambitions to travel and a passion to care. In Bradford, he’s fulfilling both of these.

“One of the things I love most about working in Bradford is the surroundings,” said Jade. “I’ve been to the beautiful green countryside, to some of the historic cities and also to visit friends in London.

“It’s a wonderful place to live, and the work-life balance I get from working at the hospital gives me the opportunity to develop my career as well as the time to explore.”

Jade qualified as a nurse in the Philippines, and leapt at the chance to come to England to progress his career.

Calm and supportive

“I have friends who work in hospitals in other parts of the country, but when I speak to them I know I made the right choice to come to Bradford.

“It’s so friendly in the hospital and the environment is calm and supportive. It’s a good place to work and develop new skills.”

Jade chose Bradford Teaching Hospitals because of the wide range of clinical disciplines we cover and the chance to specialise.

“I’m currently working in the Coronary Care Unit, which is teaching me so much about how to care for people with heart conditions. These are specialist skills I can use in the future.

“I’d like to be a ward manager and I’m currently gaining the knowledge I need to help with this. It’s a great team to work with and we look after each other as well as our patients.”

Bradford Teaching Hospitals actively invites applications from overseas nurses, and provides a supportive environment for those working in the UK for the first time.

This includes paid employment as a healthcare assistant while Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) registration is achieved, help with accommodation and a welcoming workplace to grow as a professional.
