Closing date

An exciting opportunity has arisen in our Community Nursing Teams.

The Oldham community District Nursing teams work across the 5 locations in Oldham. We are not just looking for 'staff' or someone to fill the numbers we are looking for new team members who wants to use both their excellent clinical skills and caring personality to make a BIG difference in this challenging yet rewarding setting.

Welcoming you into our community

As an autonomous registrant working across the Oldham community you will be a confident nurse professional with the ability to make swift, well considered decisions when needed.

We are looking for enthusiastic and energetic individuals, who work well under pressure. A sense of ownership for your patients, a 'can do' attitude and determination to deliver the best patient care in a variety of home environments is essential in a service that is all about enabling the patient.

Our service is provided with weekends being distributed across the team, therefore weekend working will be a part of the role.

You must have the ability to travel to different geographical locations across the Trust footprint in line with service needs.

Main duties of the job

Adult community nursing provides opportunities to have a much more 'hands on' role within a patient's recovery, building a therapeutic relationship with them. Successful candidates will bring their positive, can-do approach to care and we welcome individuals with ideas and a willingness to be involved in the innovation that is the integration of Health and Social care across the region.

Our commitment to you
  • A supportive leadership team who will work hard to make sure you have what you need to perform at your best
  • Career development/training options
  • Community specific training support from dedicated practice based educators with specialist training such as end of life care.
  • Support for your health and wellbeing.
  • Newly Qualified nurses will be supported with both a corporate preceptorship and thorough local induction
