Job summary

Cheswold Park Hospital appreciates the value of Staff Nurses RMN/RNLD who want to lead staff teams in the delivery of exceptional care to patients. We have decided to focus on growing our existing group of dedicated Staff Nurses to create the region's largest group of experienced, committed and supportive Nurses based in one secure hospital. Bringing kindness and a happy disposition to the ward is key to our culture of care. As part of that strategy, we recently announced a new salary structure designed to reward and recognise commitment by our Nurses. Depending on hours, experience and attendance, pay rates are rising by between 8% and 15%. Relocation available

As an organisation that believes in learning, now is a great time to join as we have learned from mistakes made by failing to adequately recognise those who went above and beyond and are addressing these through multiple initiatives set out in our retention strategy. We now offer a substantial monthly attendance bonus to recognise the commitment of those who consistently turn in for their rostered contract shifts and bank shift payments that rival those on offer from agencies.

You will have a real passion for leading your teams in delivering safe care that you can be proud of and you will be comfortable making clinical decisions with the support of your Senior Nurses and Nurse Leaders. You will be both flexible and adaptable to the needs of the patient you will have a real desire to improve the lives of those around you, take real satisfaction in making a difference to patients and enjoy up-skilling the support staff working for you.

  • Competitive salary up to £44,042 plus additional bank shifts if you want them.
