Start today, shape tomorrow

An exciting opportunity has arisen for individuals to join our team. You will be working within our busy and dynamic 11 bedded in-patient Stem Cell Transplant Unit.

This regional unit is JACIE accredited and has excellent standards of care underpinned by evidence based practice. The unit is undertaking more bone marrow transplants year on year which means the work within the in-patient and day care unit will continue to expand.

You will be encouraged to expand and develop your knowledge, skills and competencies within a supported and friendly environment. Whilst haemato-oncology experience is not necessary, there must be a willingness to learn about the specialty. Integrity and vision and a desire to take the service forward and expand the nursing role are also a requirement. The job is challenging and interesting. The many different protocols means treatment plans are varied and there is a lot to learn making this an exciting place to work.

As one of the UK’s leading specialist cancer centres, we have hugely ambitious plans for ensuring every patient receives truly outstanding care and can access the most advanced treatments and clinical trials. We’re expanding with a major 11-floor new hospital in the heart of Liverpool due to open in 2019 on the same thriving research and healthcare campus as the University of Liverpool and Royal Liverpool University Hospital. And we’re transforming cancer care across Merseyside, Cheshire and surrounding areas, working with healthcare partners across the region.

We’re here to deliver the best cancer care to the people we serve and we’re looking for applications from those who share that commitment and our values: Putting people first; Achieving excellence; Passionate about what we do; Always improving our care; and Looking to the future.

If you want to be part of a fantastic team and help support the Trust with our vision for providing the best cancer care in the country, then we want to hear from you.
