Sister/Charge Nurse

The Acute Medical Unit (AMU) is a 36 bedded mixed sex, busy, vibrant environment that has strong links with other areas within the Urgent and Emergency Care Clinical Business Unit.

Within AMU there are many opportunities for development, with some exciting changes occurring and more just around the corner. If you feel that you are an enthusiastic, creative, hard-working, budding leader, then we want to hear from you.

Are you a forward thinking, dynamic, resilient nurse who is looking for a new challenge?

If so, AMU is looking for a Band 6 Ward Sister/ Charge Nurse to join our already established senior nursing team. We are fortunate to have a Clinical Ward Manager, ward based Practice Educator and Clinical Band 7 Nurses who are committed to the development of team members on AMU.

As a band 6 sister/charge nurse on AMU, you will regularly be the nurse in charge of the unit, ensuring that your effective leadership and communication skills drive high standards of patient-centred care from your team. You will be an approachable, pro-active and dedicated nurse with sound clinical skills. You will have three years post qualifying experience and have the confidence to challenge decisions where appropriate.

You will be accountable to your band 7 team, supporting them in implementing new ideas and changes. You will also be involved in recruitment and retention, and completing individual performance reviews for an allocated team.

We are looking for someone who thrives in a busy, challenging environment.

You will also possess excellent communication skills, time management and organisational skills.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications.
