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.

An opportunity has arisen to join the nursing team as a Clinical Educator within our 20 bedded Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the Evelina London Children's Hospital (ELCH). The successful candidate will be joining us at an exciting time as we expand our service to 30 beds over the coming months.

We provide excellent comprehensive health care to the local population. We are also a tertiary referral centre for the south east of England: supported by the South Thames Retrieval Service which is an integral part of our PICU.

We care for children who have undergone Cardiac, Spinal, and ENT Surgery, children who have been retrieved to our unit and those requiring general intensive care who are under the joint care of the many specialist services within ELCH.

The education team includes a Lecturer Practitioner, and two additional Clinical Educators. You will possess the clinical and educational skills required to support the professional development of a large nursing team and have the ability to support and educate team members in a creative and financially efficient way.

We are looking for a dynamic, motivated senior nurse: who will be a positive, enthusiastic role model and team member. Your own professional development will be tailored to your individual needs to enable you to grow in your expertise as a nurse and educator. We welcome the opportunity to learn from you.

It is essential that you work to very high standards and possess excellent communication skills, in order to work as part of our well established large team. You will need to be a registered children's nurse, hold a relevant post registration intensive care course and mentorship qualification and have significant recent clinical experience at Band 6 or 7 within PICU.
