“It’s everything I wanted to do when I became a nurse”

As Senior Staff Nurse, you will have excellent communication skills and commitment to the delivery of high quality specialist palliative care, and you’ll have the confidence and skills to manage the inpatient unit in the absence of Sister.

With the stunning Jurassic Coast, incredible local scenery, picturesque villages and vibrant local towns, Dorset really is an incredible place to live and work. You’ll be based in the beautiful surroundings of our Inpatient Unit in Dorchester, with a very low nurse to patient ratio and the ability to make a difference by spending time with patients and their loved ones.

There are plenty of benefits, including extensive in-house training and development, and career progression opportunities.

At the senior higher level, you’ll be supervising staff, taking on projects such as our innovative telehealth scheme, and you’ll have community secondment opportunities. There are subsidised meals in our Orangery restaurant, and even free parking! A free counselling service is also available for all staff for work and non-work matters.

You should have at least 3 years post RN qualification, experience within a relevant specialist field and experience of working within more than one health care field.

Internal rotation to nights is a requirement.
