Come Nurse with us…

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest teaching Trusts in the country. It comprises Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Rosie Hospital. We provide accessible high-quality healthcare for the local people of Cambridge and regional and national specialist services. It’s a great place to nurse, work and live.

You will work on a vibrant hospital campus with a friendly community feel; we have excellent facilities to practise your skills and abilities to support your career pathway and development. Our values of Together – Safe, Kind, Excellent support the delivery of outstanding care. We have a fully electronic patient record system that is improving health-care quality; this is transforming services, improving patient safety and clinical outcomes.

We are looking to welcome a new Outpatient Sister/Charge Nurse to our outpatient’s services team based in clinic 4/4a. This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced nurse with the passion to lead a team in delivering safe, effective, patient focused care.

The role is an excellent development opportunity for a nurse wishing to enhance their leadership skills and receive exposure to a range of specialties within outpatient settings.  You will be providing leadership for a small experienced team, ensuring that their training and development needs are met and that performance targets are achieved.

We are looking for an individual with leadership potential and enthusiasm, clinical experience is desirable although not essential as skills can be developed once in post.

Clinic 4 and Clinic 4a offer a variety of specialties including Urology, Vascular, Upper GI and Colorectal. The team collectively works across both clinics to allow for skills development. To support the transition into this role we aim to provide a handover period with the current post holder, therefore the start date for the post would be 1st June 2018 or as soon as possible after this date.

Interviews for this post are due to be on the 14th March 2018.

This post is subject to a satisfactory DBS clearance as a result, you will be required to pay the associated fee of £47.50. This fee will be deducted from your second month’s salary.
