Aintree is the major trauma centre for the Merseyside which brings a high number of patients with orthopaedic injuries.

Are you already an experienced Band 6 Deputy Ward Manager or a Band 5 Registered Nurse looking for promotion and a development opportunity?

Our wards were the first wards within Aintree to be accredited ACE status for delivering high standards of care and we have maintained our status for over 12 months.

We are looking to recruit highly motivated, flexible and enthusiastic individuals with varying levels of experience to provide an exceptional health service to all of our patients. You will work closely with all members of the multidisciplinary team and increase your knowledge of complex orthopaedic care and management, initiating change to benefit patient journeys, complex discharge planning and coordinating staff to ensure safe staffing levels and skill mix.

In return we will work together to look at educational opportunities that are available to you to develop you and your further career pathway.

Ideally, you will have 2 years post registration experience. You will be able to work under pressure, provide evidence of own professional development. You must have sound clinical knowledge and the ability to manage change.
