If you are a Nurse with paid critical care experience at Band 5 or Band 6 level within the HDU and ICU environment and you'd like to progress your career in a leading-edge environment, think about joining the Homerton Staff Bank.

Main duties of the job

You need to be confident that you have the skills to be responsible for delivering a high standard of nursing care. You will be an excellent communicator, with the ability to work using your own initiative as well as working effectively within a team.
