Practice Educator - Band 6 equivalent

Closing date:

31 July 2024

Responsibilities:

At Naomi House & Jacksplace we are embracing the changing world of palliative care for children and young adults and developing new ways of working, so we are looking for a variety of forward-thinking and motivated staff to join the team.

Working within our skilled Practice Education Team, you will maintain and further develop clinical training programmes for all care professionals in the Trust, in line with our agreed educational strategy. This will include supporting clinical theory and skills assessments, continued development of a robust clinical competency framework and assisting with the regular review of skill mix and care needs. In addition, you will work directly within the clinical area, advising and supporting the development of competency and confidence. You will therefore need to be an excellent practitioner who is seen as a role model.

A qualified paediatric or dual registered nurse with proven experience in education or teaching, you must have up to date experience with a range of clinical skills including invasive and non-invasive respiratory support; IV and central line management; and experience of nursing care at end of life. Excellent interpersonal skills and good presentation skills are also important.

We offer a comprehensive induction and training programme, 28 days holiday, pension (continuation in the NHS for those already contributing to it), free parking, and a modern and pleasant work environment. 

Local affordable rental accommodation can be accessed subject to availability.
