Posted 18 September by NHS Business Services Authority

Permanent and Fixed term (9 Months Maternity Cover) posts available

Ward 4 is divided into a 6 bedded day surgery unit, Paediatric Day Care and a 24 hour 10 bedded PAU that flexes capacity to meet the ever changing needs of our children. We offer access to expert, evidence based and family centred assessment, treatment and care.

Across every area of the Paediatric Unit we continually strive, as a multi-disciplinary team, to offer high quality, evidenced based and holistic care to all of our children. We believe that we have much to offer any candidate who joins our team. Indeed we recognise that it’s also about you!!

As a Unit we have an active preceptorship and an exciting education programme and we encourage all staff to undertake internal and external courses to ensure their continued development. Opportunities include internal and external study days and University based courses such as Mentorship, Caring for children with Cancer or Diabetes, and Paediatric High Dependency modules.

Successful candidates may be eligible for:
• A recruitment and retention premium;
• Relocation and accommodation assistance;
• Funding support for tertiary level education.

We require enthusiastic, caring and motivated individuals to join our team as staff nurses to provide dynamic, high quality nursing care to Children, Young People and Babies. We offer the option of either simply choosing your preferred place of work or to be part of our rotational programme across the department – both options will allow you to advance as a highly skilled staff nurse ready for promotion. We welcome applications from both newly qualified and experienced nurses.

Please note that this post is subject to an initial probationary period on six months, extendable up to a period of 12 months. A DSB check may be required for new employees. MKUH promotes an inclusive workforce and proactively welcomes applications from underrepresented groups in our community.
