Our staff are as important to us as the care we give to our patients. That’s why we’re committed to ensuring that opinions and ideas are valued and implemented as much as possible.

It’s because of this we’ve featured in the top 20% of all trusts nationally for our staff engagement scores in the annual staff survey for the last 3 years.

We make sure the right support is available to you for development and training. Our Practice development team offers support to all registered practitioners and newly qualified nurses at the Trust. We run a 12-month preceptorship programme, where all newly registered nurses are allocated a mentor with lots of experience and who’ll guide and help staff in their new role.

We also have the Band 5 Nurse development programme that helps develop staff even further.

As our Trust's values are so crucial to the way we work every day, we're really keen to hear from candidates who will demonstrate them when joining our team.

Types of vacancies

We have a number of vacancies across the Trust at any one time.

Following investment in some of our services, we have vacancies in a number of our nursing teams at Warwick Hospital. Ideally these roles will suit people with an interest in medical and surgical roles, working with a range of patients and patient conditions.

We are also recruiting for a number of nursing positions across our community services throughout North and South Warwickshire.

For most of our roles you’ll need to attend an assessment centre. These are held monthly and dates for them are in the individual job adverts.
