Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust works across nine London boroughs and Hertfordshire. We are rated Good by the Care Quality Commission and are ranked among top NHS employers. Community healthcare is our focus and our passion. We champion the role of community health professionals to make sure our patients get great care closer to home.

Have you got an interest in Nurse Education? Are you an excellent communicator and enjoy motivating others? Do you want to work in an organisation rated as ‘good’ by the CQC? If so, an exciting opportunity has arisen for an additional experienced and enthusiastic Specialist Practice Teacher to join our existing School Nursing team based in Richmond.

As the senior nurse for practice development you will work with the Team Leads, Health Visitors and School Nurses within the 0-19 Service to ensure clinical practice is of a high standard and that the education provided for staff ensures that they are competent to look after children, young people and families with challenging levels of dependency.

This role will be very diverse and requires that you have not only significant experience in practice development but also the leadership and management skills to ensure guidelines or policies required to support practice development are developed and implemented across all clinical practice areas. The successful applicant will have excellent communication skills and will use these to develop, implement and deliver strategies to support not only the educational needs of qualified staff but also students in training.

Although this role requires a weekday work pattern, there will be a need for the successful applicant to work flexibly both clinically to support practice and in a leadership role attending meetings and representing the service both on and off site.

As a senior nurse in this specialist role you will need to demonstrate that you are enthusiastic and highly motivated. You will be well organised and able to work both independently and as part of a team. You will be computer literate. Using these skills you will work closely with the Team Leads and other members of the multidisciplinary team to ensure the School Nursing service is able to provide children and their families with the highest possible standards of care within an ever changing and challenging environment.

Your time will be focused on devising, delivering and facilitating new and innovative ways to develop staff within their roles as School Nurses and to support career progression and staff retention.

Proven experience at Band 6 or 7 within a community setting is essential, along with relevant experience of clinical skills.
