An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior Nurse to be part of Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership. The post of Senior Charge Nurse for Jubilee Community Hospital is an exciting and diverse senior nursing post with multiple opportunities to develop and work with a strong and empowered multi-disciplinary team, delivering high quality care to the local community.

The ward is a 20 bedded GP acute/Rehabilitation ward which admits patients predominately from Bydand and Rhynie medical practices, but also admits transfers from ARI and Dr Grays Hospital in Elgin. Accident and Emergency is both doctor and nurse led and as there are X-ray facilities on site, the department deals with minor injuries and fractures from surrounding MIUs as well as acutely unwell patients requiring treatment and assessment.

The successful candidate should have extensive post registration experience and have a good understanding of the complexities of the community hospital. The candidate should ideally have worked as a Junior Charge Nurse/Senior Staff Nurse and have a good understanding of the role of the Senior Charge Nurse and the requirements under Leading Better Care. The post holder must be able to evidence excellent leadership and change management skills. It is essential for the post holder to demonstrate high quality communication and interpersonal skills and have the ability to inspire, empower and motivate the nursing team.
