Job Description


Band 7 senior sister / charge nurse

The cardiac intensive care unit (CICU) is renowned for our local and national contribution to critical care and for consistently delivering high standards of clinical care. This is reflected in our last CQC report where critical care was rated as "outstanding" and cardiac intensive care being ranked 3rd in the country for patient outcomes.

We are very proud of the consistent high standards that we achieve and following a recent staff review we are now planning to expand our senior nursing team at band 7 level. We are looking for dynamic and innovative individuals that have an established track record of excellence in critical care.

Successful applicants have the opportunity to actively participate in critical care issues at Trust, National and International level. The varied and complex case mix and the commitment to developing our roles in a visionary manner make this an excellent opportunity to gain a rewarding career within critical care.

Band 7 senior sister / charge nurse

As a band 7 senior sister / charge nurse you will have recent and significant critical care experience as a band 6 sister/charge nurse. The position will allow the successful candidate to join our existing established team of experienced critical care nurses to lead our services.

This combined clinical and managerial role requires a proactive and confident clinical practitioner with a proven track record of managing change in the demands of today's health care environment. We are looking for a highly motivated and skilled nurse who will work collaboratively within our multi-disciplinary team to ensure a productive contribution to our critical care provision for patients in a specialised cardiac intensive care unit. Under the leadership of the Matron you will have the responsibility for day to day operational management of the CICU. You will ensure the delivery of high quality evidence -based and cost effective care for patients and their families. Combining clinical expertise with innovative, dynamic nursing leadership you will manage a designated team in their professional development.

You will be required to provide a high standard of individualised patient care which has the Trust core values at its heart. You should be able to demonstrate the aptitude to work in highly pressurised situations with maturity, motivation and enthusiasm and be committed to working flexibly with the collaboration of an established team.

If you would like the opportunity to influence and continually improve our high standards of patient care, support junior staff, work well under pressure, have excellent interpersonal skills, enjoy professional and personal challenges in your daily work and have the ability to work both independently and as part of our multinational team, we would be very interested in hearing from you.

Informal visits are welcomed and encouraged.

Closing date for applications will be Wednesday 23 January.
