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


Langdale North is looking to recruit  dedicated and motivated staff nurses to work within the heart of the Lake District area. You will be expected to develop your skills and have a commitment to deliver high quality care to a range of patients with differing and often complex presentations.

This is an excellent opportunity for Registered Nurses to develop their skills in a 16 bedded step up step down unit based on the Westmorland General site. This is an exciting opportunity to work within the integrated community care group to help and support patients being cared for closer to home.

The successful candidate must be a 1st level registered nurse with evidence of a commitment to working in this environment. You must be able to demonstrate the ability to work within a changing environment with a flexible approach and be keen to develop as the  service demands. This post includes weekend and bank holiday working, as well as working extended hours, ensuring there is 24 hour cover across the locality. This will include being part of a 24 hour rota to ensure service continuity.

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

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

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.
