    Ive heard its hard to find a job as a midwife, and many apply to around 30/40 jobs with no interest back. Are there so few midwifery jobs??

    How about nursing jobs (adult, child, etc) ? Are they as hard to find jobs in??

    Thanks xx

    I have email notification set up from the NHS jobs website for all NHS jobs in the north-east and I've seen very few level five jobs in any health career.

    As you are in London I would assume that you would have a better choice but with more competition. It kind of makes you wonder whether it is worth the effort.

    If you have any admin skills there are boatloads of jobs available especially in band 2, but the last two that I applied for had 350 and over 200 applicants each. And I think that the jobs were already 'promised' to someone, as the Trust has a number of volunteers and bank staff already available.

    I did think that they were simply going through the motions with my application and interview, as did one or two of the people who were interviewed the same day.

    ETA. As chance would have it, there are three band 5 nursing jobs in today's email!
