''A great place to be cared for; a great place to work''


Return to Nursing – Paid Pre Course Experience

Have you previously worked as a registered nurse, regulated by the NMC?
Have you been out of practice for over 5 years?

Do you think about the wealth of valuable health care experience you have and putting it into practice again but haven’t had the opportunity and are not sure what area you want to return to?

Keep reading…..

Whether your interest lies within an acute or community setting, working within a GP practice setting or anywhere in-between, this could be the opportunity you have been waiting for!

Returning to practice can seem a little daunting and this programme aims to support you for a period of 3 - 6 months working in a Heath Care Support Worker role ahead of commencing a return to practice programme. This valuable transition period will provide support to enable you to make right decisions regarding your career and re-introduction to studying through completion of the Care Certificate.

We have 5 places available across our Better Care Together health and care partners in North Lancashire and the South Lakes.

Opportunities will be discussed on an individual basis; and tailored to you; depending on the area of healthcare you are interested in gaining experience (or whether you would be interested in placements across different specialties / organisations). This will enable you to make the best of this first-rate opportunity to enable the right fit for you.

We believe a ‘care for you as I would want to be cared for’ ethos applies equally to staff and patients throughout Morecambe Bay upholding the Better Care Together approach.

Plus you earn while you learn and gain experience back in a healthcare setting, pro rata of £17,652 per annum.

Anyone newly appointed to the trust will be subject to the completion of a satisfactory 6 month probationary period (this includes bank staff). This will give the new staff member an opportunity to become familiar with the role and working environment.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
