Deputy Sister/Charge Nurse

NHS AfC: Band 6

We are excited to offer the opportunity for a substantive Emergency Department Deputy Charge Nurse/Sister position.

NUH is a Major Trauma Centre covering the East Midlands. Our busy Emergency Department is one of the largest in Europe. We see and treat approximately 170,000 patients per year and up to 600 patients per day. The Paediatric Emergency Department works closely with the Adult Emergency Department and the Children’s Hospital.

  • Do you enjoy being a leader and working as part of a multi-disciplinary team?
  • Is a fast paced working environment for you?
  • Are you looking to develop your management skills?
  • Can you deliver high standard patient centered care?

We are looking to employ a band 6 Deputy Charge Nurse/Sister to work within the Emergency Department. This exciting role requires a highly motivated individual, who has the ability to problem solve complex issues, whilst being a visible and supportive leader, and helping to develop the wider team. Demanding and challenging, this role will engage all of your existing skills, and build on them. The safe flow of patients through our department is paramount, and there is an expectation that you will drive the department forward, with an awareness of the latest government targets and advocating process change.

Outside of your clinical hours, you will help support the senior nursing team, undertaking staff appraisal, sickness management, and becoming involved in projects within the department which help develop our service.

You will be a registered nurse with substantial post registration experience in an acute care setting. You will be flexible and motivated. Excellent communication skills and the ability to lead a dynamic team are essential to work in our demanding yet rewarding environment.

Interviews will commence 15th and 16th July 2019.
