Job overview

We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated Community Staff Nurses to join our district nursing teams within Dudley Community Services.  We have vacancies across various sites throughout the Borough. We want nurses who are committed to delivering high standards of care, are able to work as part of a team player, but also have the confidence to work independently without direct supervision.

We have Full Time, Part Time, Permanent and Fixed Term positions available.  You will be assigned to work within one of 5  Clusters which cover the following areas:-

1.  Coseley, Sedgley & Gornal

2. Dudley & Netherton

3. Kingswinford, Brierley Hill & Kinver

4. Halesowen & Quarry Bank

5. Stourbridge, Lye & Wollescote

We also have a great opportunity if you are interested in flexible shift patterns.  We are currently looking for enthusiastic and motivated Community Staff Nurses to support our district nurse teams to deliver morning and evening medications to our most vulnerable diabetic patients.

Currently diabetic patients make up a significant portion of our caseload.  We are looking for nurses to support these patients in their own homes with the administration of their medications aligned to their daily routines.  This would be predominantly 08:00-11:00 and 15:00-18:00 hours, however, we can offer a number of flexible shift patterns and hours of work to suit your individual requirements.  

Please specify on your application which post(s) you are interested in.

Main duties of the job

The successful candidate will provide nursing care to patients within their own homes and in clinic settings.

You must have effective communication and interpersonal skills, be prepared to work flexibly and collaboratively to meet the needs of the service and demonstrate a willingness to extend and develop your existing skills.  In return, we will offer you development opportunities, clinical supervision and mentorship support and deliver a formal induction programme.

This role falls under the Government mandatory requirement of vaccination against coronavirus. Unless you are medically exempt, the Trust will be required to ensure that you are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. To be considered for this role you must be able to evidence that you have received both doses of the coronavirus vaccination or that you are medically exempt.

 

 

Working for our organisation

At the Dudley Group our patients and staff are at the heart of all that we do and that is to provide a world class service that aligns with our vision of providing safe, caring and effective services because people matter.  We are seeking to recruit staff who share our vision and values of making Dudley Group an incredible workplace. 

We are committed to becoming a diverse and an inclusive employer and where people feel sense of belonging. Seeking to expand diversity within our teams, we positively encourage applications from under-represented groups such as BAME, disabled and LGBTQ+ groups. We are also under-represented in-terms of gender within nursing roles and we would welcome applications from people from male and non-binary backgrounds. 

 We are committed to home life balance through flexible working and making reasonable adjustments where possible.
