Further your capabilities with a life-enhancing challenge

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) performs a vital role that benefits the entire nation. Providing blood products, tissues and organs that are used in transfusions and transplants, our generous donors enable us to improve the wellbeing of everyone who needs our help. But more than that, we are constantly seeking better ways to work, conducting research and developing processes that will minimise wastage and make the most of these valuable gifts. It’s a collaborative team effort and is one in which everyone plays their part. From frontline nurses to the administrative staff who support them, each and every NHSBT employee is saving and improving lives.

Working collaboratively with a variety of important departments such as Patient Services, Hospital Services and the Manufacturing and Testing Departments, you will take responsibility for ensuring a continuous supply of blood products are collected and delivered to meet the needs of the patients. Putting the needs of the donors above all else, you will ensure they have a positive experience while they are in your care and remain enthusiastic about donating again in the future. Ensuring your team are complying with all regulatory guidelines, you will ensure the collected product is stored and delivered safely, working to ensure that key performance targets are met. You will also train your staff to ensure they are able to meet these safety targets and support their own career development with clear performance management.

As you will sometimes need to stay away from home for overnight stays, you will need to have the flexibility to occasionally work irregular hours. A registered Nurse with current NMC registration, you will have experience of supervising multi-disciplinary staff at a senior level, and conducting clinical audits as required. With the confidence to present educational materials and good IT skills, you’ll believe in leading by example – guiding your teams by demonstrating your own exceptional nursing capabilities and helping them to develop their own skills. If you also have experience of coaching staff plus a teaching or post-graduate qualification, that would be even better (but isn’t strictly necessary). What is more crucial is that you share our enthusiasm for this world-leading service and are passionate about helping us improve and develop it wherever possible. A natural leader, your communication and persuasion skills will be second to none.

At NHSBT, we don’t want you to just enjoy your role – we want you to love it. That’s why we’ve put measures in place to ensure our staff have an exceptional work/life balance, set within a friendly and supportive environment. Furthermore, we believe in ‘growing’ our own talent, so we’ll provide you with plenty of training and development opportunities, and we’ll work with you to ensure you can achieve your career goals within the organisation. Our staff are proud to say they work for NHS Blood and Transplant – and we hope you will be too. We look forward to welcoming you to this vibrant and welcoming team soon.

Take charge of your career and apply now.

Applications for this vacancy will close on the evening of Wednesday 3rd August 2022 at 23:59pm, with Interview dates yet to be confirmed.
