Ambition 24hours is now recruiting nurses in Devon and Cornwall. The UK nursing agency has 14 branches nationwide and is particularly keen to recruit qualified staff who may have retired or left nursing due to family commitments, for example, and seek part-time jobs and work.

"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 nursing jobs and career opportunities that are available to them," 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.

Ambition 24hours supplies medical support staff to public and private sector healthcare providers, offering both temporary and permanent jobs for nurses, care workers – as well as locum doctors and other personnel.

One of the first UK nursing agencies to offer a 24-7, 365-day service when it opened in 1996, Ambition 24hours has invested in advanced training and IT systems to meet consistently both the needs of nurses and healthcare employers. The agency is able to match requirements by job location, required candidate qualifications and work experience, at very short notice.
