Job Description

Transform your outlook, transform local healthcare, transform your career…

Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is on a journey. Out of special measures and with some bold and exciting plans for the future, we are an ambitious trust that is going places, and we want you to join us.

With three hospitals, including our flagship Queen’s Hospital, across the central regions of East and South Staffordshire and Southern Derbyshire, we are at the forefront of discussions about transforming local healthcare.

Will you come with us on our journey to Be The Best? Here’s more about the role and what we’re looking for.

Staff Nurse - Band 5
(Salary Range: £21,909 - £28,462 per annum)

Permanent and Bank opportunities are available at Queens Hospital (Burton) Samuel Johnson Community Hospital (Lichfield) and Sir Robert Peel (Tamworth)

At Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust patients are at the centre of all we do and we are dedicated to delivering the highest quality patient care. We provide a wide range of services to a population of around 360,000 people across South Staffordshire, South Derbyshire and North West Leicestershire.

We believe that all good nurses have something extra to offer our patients beyond their training and professional registration, from a kind word or a helping hand to providing a positive outlook or going the extra mile. So, at our Trust, we want to work with people who really share our values in continuously improving our patient journey.

We are looking for exceptional and committed Band 5 Nurses who will provide outstanding care to our patients. Whether you are an experienced Band 5 looking for your next challenge or a Newly Qualified Nurse looking for your first nursing role, and feel passionate about patient care and would relish a new challenge, then we would love to hear from you.

Benefits include an on-site nursery, various salary sacrifice schemes, childcare vouchers and staff discounts, to name a few.
