The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust is a centre of excellence for research, development, education and care in the treatment of cancer. The reputation we have arises from the hard work, skills and successes of each and every one of our employees. You could be one of them. An exciting opportunity has arisen for surgical nurses to join our friendly and energetic team on Ellis Ward. We are looking for a committed, enthusiastic and self-motivated nurse to join our well established team. Ellis ward is a 14 bed adult female surgical ward, predominantly caring for patients undergoing treatment for breast and gynaecological cancers as well as other specialities including gastrointestinal and urological. We also care for patients having chemotherapy, radiotherapy and patients requiring symptom control as part of their treatment. The successful candidate will have excellent interpersonal and clinical skills and enjoy working as part of a team.

The Senior Staff Nurse is responsible for assisting the Ward Sister / Charge Nurse in the management of the clinical environment and for the management of shifts. At Senior Staff Nurse level, the post holder is required to take responsibility for the management and development of a team of employees under the supervision of the Ward Sister / Charge Nurse. We can offer you a supernumerary period designed to explore all that the ward has to offer, time allocated with the mentor and members of the various MDTs with whom we work and provide a tailor made programme to introduce you to the ward. Although oncology experience is desirable, we provide training in order for you to develop your nursing oncology knowledge as well as developing your leadership and ward management skills. We offer opportunities for further education with the Royal Marsden School including skills such as chemotherapy administration.

Our ward commitment is to meet the Trust’s goals of excellence in caring for our patients, their families and friends with professionalism, respect and dignity.
