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

 


University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay seeks to recruit to a number of key roles in our Community Care Group as we embark on our transformation journey to change our services in South Cumbria. The Trust is working actively with our partners across Health and Social Care to improve our care system. We have plans to deliver real change over the next few years and are looking to recruit individuals who are up for this challenge. If you have the appetite to work for an organization that is setting out on this journey and want to play a part in our change story, we look forward to hearing from you.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated band 5 staff nurse to join the team on Langdale North and South which is situated in the heart of the Lake District.

The Step up Step down Unit has a bed base of 46 beds across two wards and focuses on a high standard of holistic assessment and care planning of patients who are admitted from both Community services and secondary care. The aim is to be able to facilitate early patient discharge through a Multi-Disciplinary team approach working with partners from both health and social care. You will therefore develop the ethos of integrated care and seamless services ensuring that patient care is delivered to the highest possible standard.

The  Trust values training and development very highly. We want all our staff to develop their learning and career and we will always support you to study further and extend your own knowledge. We have a range of courses to help you develop your clinical skills in the community.

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.
