Are you 6 months post NMC PIN or a Health Care Support Worker looking for a chance to Internally Transfer to the Trusts Winter Contingency Ward in Division D (Ward J3)? If so please see information below on how to apply:

This year the winter ward will sit within Division D and is planned to be open by the end of December. It will open as a delayed transfer of care ward, based very much on the group of patients that have been there in previous years. Whilst the ward is running we aim to also add an opportunity to develop by using it as an educational and training ground for newly qualified, new starters with experience, overseas nurses currently doing their OSCE and IELTS and HCSW to complete their care certificates.  The ward will have an educational programme that will be supported by the Clinical Education Facilitators within the trust. The ward will provide an excellent environment to improve discharge planning skills.

We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated Band 5s who are looking for a chance to develop their skills and knowledge required to progress to a Band 6 position at CUH.

Or are you just looking for a change of working environment and a chance to work in a different team and learn more about discharge planning?

If you are interested and would like a confidential discussion about the above opportunity please contact Sarah Huggins or Jessica Sheldon in Nurse Recruitment who will be happy to meet with you.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

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. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
