Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

Your role will involve co-ordinating and leading a shift on a regular basis. The role will also involve providing professional and inspirational leadership to ensure that patients and their families receive high quality clinical care and an excellent patient experience.

We are seeking paediatric emergency nurses who demonstrate excellent clinical skills and a desire to develop their leadership skills. We believe in developing our staff and you will be given opportunities to support you in your role, as well as access to our established band specific development training days.
