What do you value in your nursing role?

We welcome applications from newly qualified nurses

We are a team of highly skilled, dedicated and caring nurses who strive to make a difference to the local people within our community, who use our services. Caring is at the heart of what we do and this motivates us to deliver the best quality care we can . We are proud of our recent achievement within our CQC report 2022 for our end of life community service, which was judged to be 'outstanding' in the caring domain.We are looking for caring, compassionate and hardworking nurses, who want to make a difference.

Job satisfaction is an important part of maintaining a happy and motivated workforce, employees want to go home feeling that they have made a difference to service users and also value the support they provide to colleagues during their working day.

Main duties of the job

As a community nursing team our service covers 8am to 8pm. As a member of the team you would be expected to work either part time or full time over a shift system which includes early and late shifts across 7 days including weekends and bank holidays. As a trust we have an excellent flexible working policy and work in partnership with our staff to meet the needs of the service.

We are a modern trust, which means whilst on the go you'll be equipped for mobile working (using a laptop and smart phone device) not only is this safer because you will have access all patient information at your fingertips, it also means you can complete records and any other patient paperwork in real time, so you can then focus all your attention on your next patient.

About us

At Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust, we are supportive of the people we care for in the community and aim to provide a fully responsive service to everyone who needs it. This is the same approach we take for our employees. We look to value the skills and experiences of those we work with, whether they are service users, carers, families or those looking to work with us.

Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust is part of the NHS. We treat NHS patients according to NHS principles and standards. The difference is the Trust is accountable to local people, rather than to Government, and so we are able to work closely with our community to develop services in the way that best suits the needs of local people.

Our Staff Survey results showed people at our Trust feel they are engaged, part of a team and work for a compassionate and inclusive organisation.

Our overall scores were better than average in eight of nine themes and level in one - the best overall results for a community, mental health and learning disabilities Trust in the south west and first equal amongst all sector NHS providers within the region too.
