The Role

What can we offer?

We believe that our patients receive the best care when our staff feel valued and supported, and in order for our emergency nurses to stay motivated and maintain high standards of quality care in a constantly changing environment, it is important that we continuously support their learning and development.

We are excited and proud of our new and innovative career pathways which are set against the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) and National Major Trauma Nursing Group (NMTNG) National Curriculum and Competency Frameworks. These clearly defined pathways offer fantastic education and career development opportunities for those with an appetite for career progression and self-improvement.

ED Nurse Career Pathway

In addition to this, our enthusiastic clinical teams have worked closely with our Design Architects to ensure that our new Emergency Departments provide the very best facilities not only for our patients but for our staff too, some of which include:

  • State of the art rest facilities offering a large space staff room to include natural lighting
  • Staff shower and changing facilities
  • Training seminar room
  • Interactive Flooring.

In addition, we also provide:

  • Excellent Company Pension
  • Generous Annual Leave Entitlement
  • Fabulous NHS Staff benefits.

With the benefit of a very supportive managerial team who are keen to develop their staff and clinical ideas, there exists a very good working relationship between our two sites – which our staff refer to as their work family.

We are constantly generating and developing ideas to bring our staff and departments into the forefront of Emergency Care in the country.

What do you need?

We are particularly looking for experienced ED nurses proficient in all areas of Emergency Nursing, yet equally, if you are a passionate nurse with an interest in Emergency Care, then we are just as keen to hear from you! We are particularly interested in nurses who possess the following:

  • Motivation, and desire to make a difference
  • Ability to work in a fast paced, constantly changing environment
  • Maintain high standards of quality care and professionalism in highly pressured environment

The Area

The North Lincolnshire district is a mixed industrial and rural community. In addition to the main centres of Scunthorpe the area has many picturesque market towns and villages, including Brigg and Barton which are small market towns concerned with light industries and agriculture. The remaining population is in a mainly farming rural area which extends into the attractive Ancholme Valley and the gently sloping hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds, which have been designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty, with extensive beaches along the coastal strip. These make North Lincolnshire the ideal destination for walkers and cyclists.

Educational facilities in Scunthorpe, and the surrounding area of Lincolnshire, are of a high standard. The house prices in the area are amongst the lowest in the UK. There is a wealth of cultural and sporting activities in the district suitable for most needs. This includes a marina at South Ferriby for sailing in the Humber Estuary, and a number of well-regarded golf clubs.
