The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust is a centre of excellence for research, development, education and care in the treatment of cancer. The reputation we have arises from the hard work, skills and successes of each and every one of our employees. You could be one of them.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our friendly team on Wilson Ward.  We are looking for an enthusiastic, self-motivated and committed experienced band 6 nurse.

Wilson Ward is a fast paced environment caring for patients with a wide range of cancers, undergoing surgical and medical interventions. The ward also receives patients from CCU and from our day-care services, where they may have been receiving chemotherapy, radiotherapy and symptom control.  Although oncology experience and head and neck clinical skills are desirable, we will offer you training in all aspects of cancer care and we will support you with developing your oncology knowledge.

The candidate will need to have excellent interpersonal and clinical skills, and be able to provide the highest quality care and demonstrate good leadership skills. You must have experience in working and taking charge of a ward in a busy environment and be able to manage a complex work load.

The successful candidate would be expected to be proactive in identifying areas to improve the patient experience and quality of nursing care and also be prepared to lead in areas of service development with support from the Ward Sister. The role involves working closely with all members of the multi-disciplinary team and leading the team in the Sister’s absence.

We can offer you the opportunity to develop your nursing, mentorship and ward management skills in a dynamic environment, by working as an important and valued member of this team.  Our ward commitment is to meet the Trust’s goals of excellence in caring for our patients, their families and friends with professionalism, respect and dignity.
