Job Description

Are you a UK-based Practice Development Nurse (RGN) looking for a new opportunity to work in a supportive and kind environment that will help you develop and achieve your career goals to become the best you can be? If so, join our team at Gardens & Jacobs Neurological Centre in Sawbridgeworth.

As an experienced Practice Development Nurse from the NHS or private sector, you'll join the team at Gardens & Jacobs as Registered Nurse working 37.5 hours per week (12.5-hour shifts), where you will change lives for the better.

Your career at Elysium will be enjoyable and rewarding as you develop specialist skills and make a real difference for some of the most vulnerable people in society.

Being a Practice Development Nurse at Garden & Jacobs is a career that you can take pride in and enjoy. It's what delivering great healthcare should feel like.

What you will be doing

As a Practice Development Nurse you will join a supportive multi-disciplinary team that works well together in caring for people of all ages who are living with neurological and long-term conditions, including those living with physical disabilities and recovering from traumatic injuries, and providing a high level of personal and rehabilitative care.

You will work as part of and lead wider teams alongside your therapy colleagues to deliver the individual care each person needs while maintaining accurate records.

It can be very physical working with people with limited mobility, providing personal care and although challenging, it is highly rewarding. You'll be supported by a team of colleagues ready to lend a hand and work together to a common goal. No two days are the same, with plenty to keep you engaged and motivated, but also a good amount of routine.

The service is a 24/7 environment, with full time hours either 8am-8pm for days or 8pm-8am for nights. This position is a full working week so there are no set days in which you will work, with weekends included on a rota.

You'll join our teams that support people who have complex rehabilitation needs such as tracheostomies / ventilated / peg feeds and who have extensive and long-term rehabilitation goals. In some cases, people's mobility and speech can be affected and we work closely with a range of other services including wheelchair, speech and alternative communication aid providers.

Things that you will have:

Ability to work in a potentially emotionally challenging environment
Registered Nurse Qualification
Experience in leading and facilitating staff training and development
Qualified NVQ Assessor
A commitment to high-quality care and to values and evidence-based practiceWhere you will be working
