As part of Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, the Princess Royal University Hospital is situated in beautiful Farnborough, Kent. The 12 cot Special Care Baby Unit at the PRUH is a level 1 provider focusing predominantly on the developmental care needs of the neonate, some of whom will be recovering from long periods of hospitalisation linked to their prematurity or surgical procedures.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic individual to join our team as a Band 6 Junior Sister. You must be a Registered Nurse with excellent clinical skills, be self-motivated, enthusiastic and committed to providing high standards of care for all our neonatal patients, their families and carers.  Being able to demonstrate excellent communication, and interpersonal skills are essential. You should have time-management and clinical organisational skills as you will need to manage a busy Level 1 Special Care Baby Unit.

The post holder will be responsible for maintaining standards and qualities in the day to day management of the unit. This role will enable you to gain and demonstrate clinical skills in leadership and people management within the clinical environment. Your primary responsibilities will be to take regular charge of the unit, support and develop junior staff by being a mentor and role model.

Care and compassion in managing our neonates and families is important to us. As a result, we expect successful candidates to demonstrate these qualities on a daily basis, and have the resilience to meet the challenges of our busy and stimulating work environment.

To be eligible for this post you must be a registered nurse with clinical experience within a neonatal unit, worked in the capacity as a senior band 5 or band 6 nurse and must hold a mentorship qualification (ENB 998 or equivalent) and must have a relevant post graduate qualification in neonatal care.
