The Trust is committed to ensuring that you achieve a good work/life balance, and have access to a wide range of support including flexible working options, childcare support, and many training and development opportunities. CNWL provides excellent learning and development opportunities, and as a Band 6 Clinical Team Leader, you will be well supported through preceptorship, supervision, and training.

An engaged staff is more productive and Band 6 nurses play a role in engaging other staff members in the Trust and the work we do by:

  • Participating constructively in their own supervision and annual appraisal processes
  • Using continuing professional development funds to develop a relevant clinical specialism, gain sign-off mentorship skills or undertake accredited leadership or management modules.
