An Enhanced Disclosure with relevant Barring Service checks and full referencing will be required before employment can commence.

Are you looking for a new Nursing role where you can really make a difference to the lives of children and young people with Epilepsy?

We are currently recruiting for an experienced and passionate Nurse to join our Health team, supporting a range of students from 5-25 years old. Our children and young people have Epilepsy, Autism and complex learning difficulties, along with communication difficulties.

As well as our Medical centre, Therapy teams, wellbeing departments, Diagnostic services and a Research department, our campus includes a Special Needs School and College, 10 Residential houses as well as a working farm.

This is certainly not your average Nursing role!

Your role

We have an opportunity for experienced Nurses to join our small, supportive team. Our team is led and managed by an Epilepsy nurse consultant, 6 nurses, 3 Healthcare assistants, a Pharmacy advisor and assistant and our administrator. The students we support have a variety of complex health care needs, so our Teaching and Residential teams need the backup and support of an experienced and varied Nursing Team.

You will have responsibility for the planning, implementation and evaluation of individualised nursing care. You will also work autonomously within the team as a key Nurse, ensuring that a holistic approach to the health care needs of the students is maintained.

You will find this job teaches you an enormous amount, not just professionally but also on a personal level. The students will teach you about the value of life and the infinite variety of people in this world. You will also have the opportunity to learn from experts on Epilepsy and other relevant subjects which will count towards your Continuing Professional Development.
