Not all Hero’s wear capes. Now more than ever, being an #NHSHero is something to be proud of.

Clarendon and Beechwood Wards at the Evington Centre are looking to recruit Band 5 Staff Nurses to join our teams.

Clarendon and Beechwood Wards are part of a network of twelve Community Hospital Wards that provide sub acute care, complex rehabilitation and end of life care to patients across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. The hospital network also provides Stroke rehabilitation on two of our other wards in Coalville and Market Harborough.

We are looking for Band 5 Staff Nurses who have experience in medical care and who can demonstrate knowledge, care and compassion towards frail older patients. We are looking for Nurses who share our passion and commitment for providing high quality care through sound clinical decision making in our busy in-patient wards. These positions are also suitable for newly qualified or return to practice nurses to join our preceptorship programme.

The Wards all have a multi-disciplinary approach to patient management. Family and MDT goal setting are an integral part of the registered nurse role in all our in-patient areas. Supported by the Ward Sisters and Matron, you will demonstrate and develop your professional accountability, innovative thinking and contribute to the clear vision for the in-patient nursing areas.

We offer training and personal development within the Wards and at our Learning and Development Centre to ensure you have the knowledge and skills to meet patient needs and complete your revalidation CPD requirements. You will be supported through a programme of training to ensure you are able to meet your clinical and leadership requirements to provide safe effective care on the ward.

In addition we offer free parking on all our sites and flexible working patterns with an opportunity to work predominantly days or predominantly nights. We can clarify this at interview.

We strongly recommend that you make contact with Clarendon or Beechwood Wards during the application process, so that you understand fully the types of patients on our Wards, our patient management process with the MDT, how we facilitate timely discharges and communicate this to our patients and their families.

Please contact Sophie Daveney (PA to Hospital Matron) on Mobile: 07827 939385 or email for further information and to arrange a visit.

Interviews will be conducted via MS Teams Video call and candidates will be invited accordingly
