Due to our ongoing plans in developing our Surgical service we are looking to recruit to the post of Junior Sister/Charge Nurse in order to strengthen leadership.

These posts have been created to improve our skill mix and to support junior staff with the intention of improving the patient experience and reduce length of stay.

Specialities include Colo-rectal, Urology and general surgery patients and step-down patients from ITU/HDU.
A keen interest in the speciality is required and you are expected to hold a relevant post basic course.
The successful applicant will have the drive to support change management initiatives.
You will rotate through the floor to gain experience in all areas of the speciality. Internal rotation is in practice. In return we will support you to develop your clinical and managerial skills. Informal visits/discussion are encouraged.
