Theatre Practitioner

Band 5

As part of the planned development of our services we need to increase the number of NMC/HCPC registered band 5 Theatre practitioners to work in our dedicated Trauma & Orthopedic Theatres at QMC Hospital, Nottingham.

We are looking for motivated, adaptable individuals who take pride in their role and want to develop their professional skills in a busy surgical environment where no two days are the same. You must be a qualified nurse with current NMC registration or a qualified ODP with current HCPC registration.   You will be computer literate and possess the ability to communicate clearly and effectively to a wide variety of professionals from different backgrounds. You must also be able to work on your own initiative, have a flexible attitude and work well as a member of the multidisciplinary team.

Theatre experience is desirable but not essential. We are happy to accept newly qualified members of staff, given that a specialist induction and supernumerary period to learn from our supportive team will be provided. Student nurses / ODP’s coming up to graduation would also be most welcome to apply.

Our shifts are worked flexibly over a four week rota, primarily on 11.5 hour shifts. These shifts will include on calls, nights, weekend and Bank Holidays to provide an effective service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) has a wide range of fantastic opportunities for staff to start and develop their careers in healthcare, making a clear commitment to our patients and staff that 'we are here for you'. We will do all we can to ensure our patients get the best possible care we can give them. We want you to be proud to be part of the NUH team.

Interested candidates would be welcome to have an initial visit and informal discussion. We look forward to hearing from you.
