York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust - More jobs by this advertiser

Contract Type: Permanent

Hours per week: 30 hours per week

An exciting opportunity has arisen for two innovative and committed nurses, who want to develop their skills and progress to be a HIV Advanced Nurse Specialist, to work with the Lead Nurse in the HIV nursing service for York and North Yorkshire.

This position is based in York, but requires travel and work across multi-sites around North Yorkshire.  The ability to transport yourself and equipment across the locality during the course of a normal working day is required for these vacancies. 

The successful candidates will join a team of 2 other nurses, and be involved in the development of a new community support service for HIV patients and their carers. 

The role will include the provision of high level autonomous nursing care within the HIV service, and to act as a role model and mentor to junior and less experienced colleagues. The post holder will support the HIV Lead Nurse and Clinical Lead, in ensuring that management and leadership standards within the HIV service are maintained.

Significant clinical nursing experience and expertise in HIV, sexual health or related specialty and being a non-medical prescriber are highly desirable. The applicant will need to hold a recognised teaching and assessing qualification, or be working towards it within the first 12 months.

This is an opportunity to join our HIV multidisciplinary team at a time when the nursing team is expanding and developing.  The successful applicant has the opportunity to develop their clinical skills, if they possess passion for developing services and excellence in clinical care.

We wish to offer this post to the candidate as a band 6 in the first instance. You will be moved to band 7 upon successful completion of the training competences, which we envisage will take you up to 2 years; but it may take less time dependant on your previous experience and skills. This can be discussed further at interview.

Please note:  There are 2 positions of 30 hours per week.
