Staff Nurse

Band 5

Are you a motivated and enthusiastic staff nurse looking for a new challenge? We are currently recruiting new staff nurses to join our experienced, skilled and friendly endoscopy team who provide frontline diagnostic services to our local population.

We are recruiting for both Full and Part Time Staff Nurses

Previous experience, though desirable, is not essential to this post as you will be trained with full support from our nurse educator and the wider nursing team utilising a comprehensive endoscopy training package. The staff nurse post encompasses the complete patient pathway in which you will be trained to work in the outpatients department, the pre-assessment area, the procedure rooms, recovery and discharge area. Due to the variety of the work there is also ongoing encouragement and opportunity for your own personal development.

There will be a requirement once endoscopy competencies are completed, and staff are deemed competent, for the successful candidates to join our out of hours on call service.

If this sounds like the challenge for you we very much look forward to hearing from you.
