Just go on to nhs jobs and do an advanced search, type in sheffield into location then how far you're willing to travel and leave the rest blank. It will bring up all jobs in that location.

Hope this helps, good luck x

Can I suggest that you go to the Job Centre and ask them whether they will put you on the NHS Employability course which is run periodically at Castle College? It's 10 weeks of 2 days a week and covers everything from infection control and how to wash your hands properly to how to find and apply for careers in the NHS.

I was just going to say what Medusa said.

The NHS employs quite a few people from the employability course. It may seem menial and not the way you want to go, but it is a foot in the door and is used as a stepping stone into other careers in the NHS especially if you go for the smaller hospitals like Weston Park and the Childrens. A lot of the clinical support workers and even a porter I know, started life in domestic services as ward orderlies and domestics.

There a lot of part time opportunities as you have a young baby.
