‘Roving recruiters’ are looking for nurses in Devon and Cornwall, because of the shortage of qualified staff in the South West. The nursing recruitment agency started by entrepreneur Penny Streeter OBE is keen to interview qualified nurses and care assistants who may have retired or left nursing due to family commitments, for example, and seek part-time jobs and employment.“There is a shortage of skilled nurses in Devon and Cornwall and we are very keen to make it as easy as possible for nurses to return to work and find out about the jobs and opportunities that are available to them. We have recruiters who can travel to locations convenient to nursing staff and then complete the interview and form-filling that is required,” says Penny Streeter OBE, founder and managing director of Ambition 24hours.
Penny Streeter was awarded the OBE (Order of the British Empire) in the 2006 New Years Honours for ‘services to enterprise’ and won the CBI (Confederation of British Industry) Entrepreneur of the Year in 2003.
