Rewards and Benefits

  • A welcome award of £3000 is offered for this post, payable within the first year of employment
  • Excellent learning and development to support you and develop your Nursing Career.
  • Flexible working opportunities
  • Free parking on Trust Sites 
  • Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is committed to training and developing its staff not only with clinical skills but also in leadership and managerial skills.

Working life 

As a Community nurse, you'll 

  • assess the healthcare needs of patients and families
  • monitor the quality of care they're receiving
  • be professionally accountable for the delivery of care
  • utilise technology to enable you to update records as you go 

Your patients could be any age, but they'll often be elderly, while others may have been recently discharged from hospital, be terminally ill or have physical disabilities.

The service aims to provide an excellent standard of care that supports patients to remain in their home environment. In Northamptonshire you will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team in order to support the service and focus on delivering quality outcomes and improving the patient experience. You'll play a vital role in keeping hospital admissions and re-admissions to a minimum and ensuring that patients can return to their own homes as soon as possible. 

Must have skills

You will need to be adaptable and resourceful. You'll need to be well organised, confident and able to cope in diverse situations to deliver patient care. Leadership and management skills are also important, as with all nursing roles, communication skills, problem solving and good judgement are crucial.

You will be part of caring team and be able to work flexibly with minimum supervision, with the ability to prioritise work based on the patient need. 

Join us and become part of Team NHFT.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require sponsorship to work in the United Kingdom (UK) are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. Please note that from January 2021, to work in the UK all candidates who are not UK or Republic of Ireland (RoI) nationals require sponsorship unless you have permission to work via another route. Non UK / RoI candidates wishing to apply can self-assess the likelihood of obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship here. It is vital that you provide full and accurate details of your current immigration status on the application form. Overseas applicants applying for entry clearance into the UK must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided in continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Guidance can be found here. Not everyone needs a ‘Skilled Worker’ visa. If you are applying for a vacancy in health or adult social care, check if you’re eligible to apply for the Health and Care Worker visa instead. It’s cheaper to apply for and you do not need to pay the annual immigration health surcharge
