Job Description

North Somerset Community Partnership (NSCP) became a staff led Social Enterprise on October 1st 2011 with an ethos of delivering high quality innovative services driven by the needs and choices of the local population.

We are delighted to have been awarded the contract to provide Community Services in North Somerset for the next 5-7 years. This is a really exciting time to join us as we are implementing a new service model to improve how we deliver our services and improve health and wellbeing in our communities.

We work in partnership with the Local Authority, General Practitioners and voluntary organisations to provide a wide range of community health services to the people of North Somerset. We are providing NHS services and this will always remain at the heart of what we do but we also have the freedom to bid for other contracts and extend our service to meet the needs of the community.

Do you want to work for a dynamic, progressive organisation where staff have a voice? If so join our social enterprise where you will be supported to release your potential.

As a social enterprise our priority is to help people we care for stay well and help those who need treatment recover in the best place for their needs. Being a social enterprise we provide NHS funded services but with a difference. Firstly, we are staff owned, which means as an employee you can be a shareholder and have a direct influence on how the company is run. Secondly, any surplus we make can be re-invested back into the community to promote the health and well-being of the communities we serve.

So if you’re a highly motivated Registered Nurse looking to join our forward thinking Community Teams across North Somerset we could have an opportunity to suit you……

Each of our multi-disciplinary teams will have close working relationships with nursing staff, allied health and social care professionals where we focus on delivering a high standard of care to housebound patients to help prevent avoidable admission into the acute sector.

You will need to demonstrate an ability to work autonomously whilst out in the community as you will be required to undertake a wide range of clinical duties such as wound management and end of life care. As a Community Nurse you need to be enthusiastic about innovative ways of working and be able to demonstrate excellent customer service in your approach to delivering patient care alongside basic IT skills.

Although most of the work is during core hours, there is a requirement to work early and late shifts on a rotational basis, and you will be required to work weekends.

For further information on the opportunities available please contact Catriona Head on  ( Phone number removed )  or email ( Email address removed )

In return you will also have access a range of benefits including pension scheme; annual leave (27 days on joining), child care voucher scheme, cycle scheme and employee assistance programme.

NSCP has been awarded Employing Authority status for the NHS Pension Scheme as an Independent Provider. This means that people joining NSCP on or after 1 August 2014 are eligible to join if within 12 months prior to your start date with NSCP you have been employed by an organisation where you were eligible for the NHS pension, even if you’re not currently making contributions.

If you are not eligible for the NHS Pension scheme, you will be eligible for membership of our Legal & General defined contribution Group Pension Scheme. From 1st April 2015 if you have not elected to join either scheme, you will be automatically enrolled into the Group Pension Scheme at 1% and receive employer contributions if you: earn £10,000 or more a year (£833 a month); are aged 22 or over; and; are under State Pension age.
