Job Description

We are seeking a dedicated and enthusiastic Staff Nurse to join our client's busy Acute Surgical Ward team. Our client is the major Health facility on the beautiful Island of Guernsey, in the Channel Islands.

Our client delivers a diverse range of healthcare services, including diagnosing and treating patients within the hospital, and supporting people with disabilities in the wider community.
Our client delivers excellent medical and surgical care supported by modern equipment and a very high standard of nursing care.
The successful candidate will plan, implement, assess and evaluate care, monitor quality assurance initiatives and provide support to junior staff.

Person requirements:
Registered Nurse with full registration with the NMC.
A minimum of two years' post-graduate Acute Surgical Ward experience.

Successful applicants will enjoy support from a strong management team, and the opportunity to work alongside expert consultants and a multi-disciplinary team of other healthcare specialists. They will benefit from access to a dedicated professional and personal development program.

The benefits of working in Guernsey include:
- A higher-than-UK salary
- A £10,000 bonus scheme paid over four years; £1,000 at completion of one and three years service and £4,000 at two and four years.
