Clinical Training is a core component of the governance and safety program of any healthcare provider and is at the heart of our strategy to maintain our clinical reputation. It covers the range of activity from planning the clinical training program through delivery to auditing training compliance. Audit assurance is also a fundamental part of clinical governance and safety and is integral to a training delivery role as lessons from audit must be incorporated into the training program to demonstrate that we are a learning organisation and that we do invest in our people.

We are looking for a dedicated, experienced, energetic and passionate individual to come and be part of our senior nursing team as our clinical training and audit assurance lead. The post will be professionally incredibly rewarding but, like so many top-quality opportunities, will be very demanding. Examples of some the knowledge, experience and skill we seek include:

  • A passion for working with people and enabling the provision of person-centred care.
  • Working in a training delivery and clinical audit.
  • Understanding the role of training in returning staff to work and supporting them to improve performance.
  • Being part of an on call rota.
  • Maintaining own professional development and registration.
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills written and verbal.
  • Leadership and management skills, with the ability to motivate others.
  • Experience at first hand of preparation for, and hosting CQC inspections.

Daunting as the role might be, you will not be alone. We have a vibrant and supportive MDT which will help you advocate for your patients. We also have a deep commitment to professional development and look forward to helping you reach your full potential as you commit to helping us reach ours.

This is a full time and permanent role working an average of 42.5 hours.  The salary for this role is £39,984.56.
