Endoscopy - Both Full and Part time Registered Nursing Vacancies available

We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated Registered Nurses, with a passion for Endoscopy or those who would like to explore a career change, to join our team.

Our dynamic and friendly department offers nurses the opportunity to work alongside a multidisciplinary team in a variety of settings including pre-operative assessment clinics, assisting with therapeutic and diagnostic patient procedures and caring for patients in recovery.

In December 2018 we relocated our outpatient services to the purpose built Quadram Institute, which is a world class facility for food and health research. This move provides our staff with further opportunities for training and progression in addition to the unique proposition of working alongside dedicated scientists and researchers.

This is in addition to us being a centre for the National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme and we are also a centre of excellence for endoscopy training, offering approved courses for doctors and nurses.

We are fully JAG (Joint Advisory Group) accredited and at our last assessment the endoscopy team was congratulated for facilitating high quality patient care across all disciplines. We are a large and dynamic department, treating more than 28,000 patients in 2016.

For the right candidates, we are also offering the following incentives*
- £2,000 welcome bonus

Benefits of joining our expanding Unit include:
- Great opportunities for training and progression
- Encouragement to develop advanced clinical skills
- Shift flexibility over three-session days, with the requirement for some on-call working
- Working alongside colleagues from a variety of clinical specialties
- Strong links with clinical research and studies to advance treatment techniques
- Full and part-time opportunities available

We would welcome applications from candidates without previous experience in Endoscopy, but experience in an acute Trust is desirable.

You may also like to take a look at the video of an interview with one of the Registered Nurses from the Gastroenterology team, talking about why she likes working at NNUH.

Alternatively you can contact us on 01603 286286 ext 6542 to arrange to come in for a tour of our department and to talk to us about working at our hospital.

It’s a really exciting time for us at NNUH; if you’ve got the drive, enthusiasm and skills to make the most of this great opportunity, we’d love to hear from you.
