Cancer Nurse Specialist - Flexi-Working - Full or Part-Time
Basing View, Basingstoke, Hampshire (with some travel to Central London and perhaps throughout UK )
£35,000 - £40,000 per annum plus contributory pension scheme, life assurance, ongoing CPD and support with revalidation, 25 days holiday plus bank holidays, modern comfortable office facilities close to town centre

What we do…

We help people affected by cancer get the most appropriate care and support; removing uncertainty and providing reassurance. Connecting people to the right cancer information, specialists and resources is our superpower!

Come and be part of our team striving to change the way health care is delivered to ensure it is centred on the individual rather than the system. We are focused on cancer today but in the future, we hope to impact all aspects of health. We want to be bold and courageous so that this change for the better results in a revolution!

What you will do…

Be a clinical advocate for our clients with cancer. This can include attending consultations or treatments and debriefing patients afterwards; reviewing and collating medical notes so everything is ready at the time it is needed; providing support and information as patients receive diagnoses and help them understand the treatment options available. 

Help clients to manage their cancer journey, aiming to alleviate any concerns they may have, using your knowledge and experience to build long term, trusted relationships. 
If you are a nurse looking for a change, wanting to use your skills and knowledge in a different way, we’d love to meet you. This is not a traditional nursing role, and instead you will have the time and resources to support your patients in the way that is right for them. 

Our nurses…

+ Are passionate about patient-focused care, and want to make a real difference to the experience our clients have
+ Have decided to step away from the pressure, constraints and paperwork that traditional nursing brings
+ Are healthcare professionals with experience in providing treatment or support to people with cancer, but now want to use their nursing skills in a different way
+ Love working as part of a team that are focused on reducing the burden and improving the quality of life for individuals living with cancer
+ Want to continue CPD and have the opportunity to develop knowledge about different cancer types
+ Enjoy working in our relaxed, supportive and open office environment in Basingstoke 
+ Are fantastic at working jointly with others tackling challenges head on 
+ Relentlessly pursue the best – the best for our clients, and continuous improvements to our services and processes

Successful candidates will:

+ Be a Registered Nurse with a minimum requirement of a Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE) Nursing Studies
+ Have experience in Cancer Care and preferably with experience as an oncology/radiotherapy nurse
+ Have an in-depth understanding of cancer, its treatment and the impact on those affected by it
+ Have experience in delivering structured needs-based assessments and the ability to quickly build rapport and trust, whilst conveying knowledge and authority
+ Have a good understanding of cancer pathways, NICE Guidelines and cancer/medical terminology
+ Have a keen interest in remaining up to date with innovation within the wider cancer landscape and able to provide awareness of development to our Care Team as required

Team fit and your ability to build rapport quickly is really important to us so as well as an initial telephone interview for shortlisted candidates, you will have the opportunity to come along to our offices and meet our wider team and other Cancer Nurse Specialists.
