The post involves supporting registered nurses with direct nursing care of patients in ICU. In addition there are some housekeeping and administrative tasks required, E.G. photocopying restocking clinical area from department store cupboards.
While the post is based in ICU some flexibility will be required when work outside ICU (within the Victoria Hospital) is needed.

You should be caring and a good communicator. Previous work in a care environment would be of value, should that care environment be in an acute hospital setting that would be of significant value. It is essential that you are able to work in a large team (75 members of staff in ICU).

If successful in your application, you will be offered the opportunity to undertake an SVQ2 or SVQ3 (dependent on band) in Health and Social Care, approximately 9 months after taking up post. It is expected that you complete this qualification, which will be fully funded by NHS Fife. Your Line Manager will provide you with more information once you are in post
