An experienced Registered Nurse/RGN with a background in surgical ward nursing is required to join a leading Staffordshire hospital and work as Sister/Charge Nurse covering Elective Surgical Wards across 2 sites, which provide both inpatient and day case services.

The role does not require you to be a driver and you will work in block placements at one site and then the other, rather than travelling between sites whilst on duty.

What the hospital is offering the successful RGN Sister/Charge Nurse & details of the role:

  • A competitive annual salary in the region of £30,000 to £35,000 depending on experience, plus enhancements where applicable

  • Childcare vouchers and cycle to work schemes
  • Some great retail, leisure and lifestyle discounts
  • Free uniforms
  • A private pension scheme and life assurance
  • Staff assistance and support programmes
  • A range of programmes to support staff wellbeing, including company sick pay and private healthcare schemes

As RGN Ward Sister/Charge Nurse, you will deliver effective departmental management, ensuring excellent standards of clinical care and professionalism are maintained to a diverse mix of elective surgical patients.  You will manage staff and resources alongside supporting and mentoring junior team members whilst managing a clinical caseload and providing high quality nursing care.
