Are you a neonatal nurse or do you have neonatal nursing experience?

We have opportunities for nurses to join the bank to work with our team on the Special Care Baby Unit in Barnstaple.

Do you have a passion for caring for neonates and their families? Do you have good communication skills and are you committed to providing excellent family centred care in a nurturing and supportive environment? If so we would love to hear from you.

We have an 8 cot Special Care Unit in Barnstaple, which is newly refurbished and part of the South West Neonatal Network.

We provide level one care plus CPAP. Also we stabilise the very sick infant prior to transfer to the level 3 unit. We deliver individualised, developmental, family centred care to all our babies.

If you wish to work within our small, friendly team of professionals please apply to this advertisement. Specialist knowledge in neonatal care is required.

Interviews will be completed via Zoom during the current climate.

Our values guide everything we do. At all times, we aim to:

  • Demonstrate compassion
  • Strive for excellence
  • Respect diversity
  • Act with integrity
  • Listen and support others

Our teams of care professionals work with patients and their families to support peoples’ independence, health and wellbeing. We provide support to avoid hospital admissions, and if an admission is necessary, we try to make each patient’s stay in hospital as short and effective as possible before working with them on a safe discharge home.

In our most recent staff survey, our staff voted us in the top 10% of NHS provider organisations to work for and we also came out as the top provider in the South West for our overall results. Our patients (through the Friends and Family Test) regularly report an average of over 95% satisfaction with our services.

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. For further information and to self-assess the likelihood of obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship, please visit the UK Border Agency website. Note: we will be unable to obtain Tier 2 sponsorship for Bank positions.

Please note that we may close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of applicants.
