Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is one of the largest acute Trusts in the UK, employing over 20,000 staff.

We are responsible for running a family of nine hospitals across six separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital care through to highly specialised regional and national services.

We are the main provider of hospital care to approximately 750,000 people in Manchester and Trafford and the single biggest provider of specialised services in the North West of England. We are also the lead provider for a significant number of specialised services including Breast Care, Vascular, Cardiac, Respiratory, Urology Cancer, Paediatrics, Women’s Services, Ophthalmology and Genomic Medicine.

Our vision is to improve the health and quality of life of our diverse population by building an organisation that:

  • Excels in quality, safety, patient experience, research, innovation and teaching
  • Attracts, develops and retains great people
  • Is recognised internationally as a leading healthcare provider

We are Manchester Local Care Organisation - an exciting, new public sector organisation that is bringing together NHS community health services and social care services in the city. We’re driven by the aim of improving the health of local people in Manchester by working across organisational boundaries.


The first health and social care staff have been deployed to us from April 2018 and are now starting to work in new ways across the city. Our teams work as one in the neighbourhoods they serve – delivering and designing services in partnership with local people. We also provide key services that work across wider localities and city-wide. We believe that our pioneering approach will make a massive difference to the health of people in our city and we are looking for you to join our team and help us do this.


We are seeking Registered Children’s Nurses to join our large children’s community nursing team on a temporary basis for 9 - 12 months to cover maternity and study leave.

We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic nurses with excellent communication skills and good organisational skills who can deliver evidence based nursing care to children at home. The Children’s Community Nursing team support children in the community with acute and chronic conditions seven days a week from 8am-10pm. Therefore it is necessary for you to be able to work shifts and weekends.

You will be part of a forward thinking, friendly team and you will be supported to develop professionally.


3 full time temporary jobs are available, however part time hours will also be considered. Secondments will also be considered, however you must gain approval from your current line manager before applying.
