Ward A6 at the Wythenshawe site of Manchester Foundation trust are currently looking to recruit a band 6 sister/charge nurse to our general surgical ward.

Our general surgical directorate has a reputation for the highest standards of clinical care.

We are looking for a suitably experienced nurse who is passionate about patient safety and the delivery of exceptional quality care to patients with upper/lower GI surgical conditions.

You will be an aspiring leader with the ability to adopt a highly accessible and visible approach for patients, relatives and colleagues. You will assist the Ward Manager with the operational management for the team working on the Ward. You will have the ability to develop a culture of continuous improvement with a particular emphasis on the patient journey and clinical outcomes.

This is an exciting time for the general surgical directorate, as we have recently established a new Surgical Ambulatory Care Receiving Unit to complement our existing Surgical Assessment Unit, Day-case unit and inpatient wards.

Nursing roles at The Manchester University Hospital Foundation Trust (MFT) are about having access to fantastic learning facilities and developmental opportunities. You will have access to the MFT Academy and LEAD Training Programmes, coaching, and department specific training and development opportunities.

Our commitment is further reinforced by our robust Trust Nurse Revalidation Programme – offering an e-portfolio and dedicated individual support. We can offer training, flexibility, friendliness and a caring environment in which to work and provide a number of benefits, which you will find on the attached document entitled "Staff Benefits"

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.
