Ward 10 is a very busy surgical ward so you will need to be adaptable and be able to cope working in a stressful environment.

You will be dealing with acutely unwell patients with varying complex needs.  We transfer patients to Intensive Care and also receive patients from the Intensive Care Unit as well as acutely unwell patients coming via our Accident and Emergency Department. You will have ample opportunity to learn and develop yourself in your role in this supportive environment.

We have strong clinical leadership from our Nursing Sisters and a robust nursing management structure and support network. We require someone with excellent communication and interpersonal skills as well as an organised person with a positive attitude who is flexible and proactive.  We are a very friendly team and all enjoy working together in our changing and challenging environment.  Tunbridge Wells Hospital is the first hospital in England to have all single rooms with ensuite bathrooms.  The Trust and the Ward are extremely keen to develop you as a staff Nurse/Associate Nurse and there is a wealth of training opportunities for you to select.

Tunbridge Wells is a vibrant and thriving town with historical sites as well as excellent schools, superb shopping and theatres.  It has good transport links to both London and the Coast.  It is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
