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


Want a career in Acute Medicine?

Do you enjoy the challenges an acute medical assessment unit demands and would you like the opportunity to work within the emergency floor at RLI?

We are looking for qualified nurses to join our team.

The Emergency Floor supports lifelong learning and development and is committed to the continuing development of our trained nurses.

We have a number of vacancies on the Acute Medical Unit and we are looking for suitably qualified nurses to join this proactive team. Equally if you are a newly qualified nurse who would like a career in acute nursing but are worried that it may be too early in your career we are also happy to ensure you can work on the unit and support would be provided to ensure you flourish.

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.
