Are you a Nurse with a Haematology or Oncology background looking to develop your career and join an exciting, dynamic team?

Ward 31 is an Acute 18 Bed Unit, treating patients with an Oncological or Haematological Malignancy and the symptoms associated with them, or the side effects related to their treatments.

Applications are invited from enthusiastic Nurses to join our dedicated multi-disciplinary team. Applicants would preferably have Chemotherapy competence, but you will be given the relevant training if this is not the case.

We also run an out of hours triage service to provide a 24hr emergency resource for patients. You will be required to gain competency in this if successful.

The role will support the Charge Nurse in the delivery of direct patient care and management of staff, and resources within the ward.

Above all we are looking for an experienced Nurse with passion and drive who is committed to maintaining and improving our service.

It is an area that can be emotional at times and you will be supported with this, if you want to make a genuine difference in your patients' lives and feel truly privileged to be able to provide the extremely high level of care expected, then you will find this role totally rewarding.

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.
