Band 6 Charge Nurse/ Sister- Stroke

 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 Charge Nurse/Sister to join the nursing team working on the Acute Stroke Unit within the Neuroscience Directorate.

Harvest B is a 30 bedded ward located at Queens Hospital. Successful applicants will be working with other members of the multidisciplinary stroke team, in providing a high quality holistic service to the population you serve.

We are looking for highly motivated and enthusiastic Registered Nurses and invite applications from those nurses who relish the challenge of working in Neurosciences.

The Neurosciences team consists of Nursing staff, Doctors, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Speech Therapists and Nurse Specialists all of whom work collaboratively to deliver our Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

There are excellent opportunities for personal and professional development as well as individual support from the Ward Manager and Matron. You must be very enthusiastic and willing to promote a high quality care service as the basis of the unit's philosophy. You must have a good working knowledge of Neurosciences and a willingness to embrace and promote positive change. Strong leadership qualities would be essential for this role.

All informal/formal enquiries are to be made by contacting Senior Sister Justine Fraser - 01708 435112 – Justine.fraser1@nhs.net

All new staff appointed to posts at the Trust are subject to a probationary period. This will give the new staff member an opportunity to become familiar with the culture and working environment of the Trust.

Applications should be made online, however, queries regarding the application process or assistance with completion of the form (for applicants with a disability) can be made to Rebecca Hills, Recruitment Advisor, on 01708 435000 ext. 2148.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
