As part of our vision to provide best in care we are looking for talented and passionate Practitioners who share our beliefs and who want to grow with our organisation. This is reflected in our selection processes which now include an Assessment (Drug calculations/Literacy and Numeracy) and a Values Based Interview (VBI).
Together with our staff we have developed a set of Values which form a framework for a positive and supportive environment for our patients, visitors and staff. We believe that all candidates should be able to demonstrate and be equally committed in fulfilling these Values to be successful in their application. It’s very important that we select the right nurses to come and work for us. The selection process for all nursing posts will include a Literacy, Drug Calculations and Numeracy Test. You will be invited to sit these assessments if you are successful in the shortlisting process.
