Exciting chance for registered nurses at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust

Working flexibly to suit work life home commitments is a real bonus for many people struggling to fit everything in.

That’s why Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Goole hospitals are now offering band five registered nurses the chance to work predominantly nights, either part time or full time.

The call has gone out for people interested in working on medical or surgical wards who would prefer to be night owls.

Diane Hughes, nurse staffing improvement manager, said: “This is a great opportunity for registered nurses who would prefer to work nights to join the team here at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust.

“Many people prefer to work nights as it allows them to be more available for other commitments, such as childcare or caring for a relative or friend. All we ask is that people have six months post registration experience and work days for four weeks of the year to maintain their clinical skills and keep up-to-date with their mandatory training.”

Diane added: “As part of our Improving Together programme we are looking at ways of boosting our nurse recruitment in new and innovative ways. We are hoping this will encourage nurses who cannot commit to regular day shifts.”

The dates of the day shifts can be negotiated to suit both the needs of the employee and the Trust.
