This is an exciting role and opportunity to join a settled and supportive specialist team administering chemotherapy and other anti-cancer treatments on the chemotherapy unit. Full training will be given on the unit and the successful candidate will be fully supported to achieve internal chemotherapy competencies. It would be expected that the successful candidate would complete an externally accredited chemotherapy course at some point in the future.
Ideally, we would like someone available to work full time but would consider a suitable candidate who was able to work 30 hours or more per week. We currently work 8am-6pm so could offer longer working days or can accommodate a candidate who would prefer to work 9-5. We would also be more than happy to accommodate set working days.
Main duties of the job
You will need to have excellent communication skills and be confident at communicating with patients who are facing a life limiting illness.

You will be expected to cannulate and take bloods but full training for this will be given. You will need to be hard working, flexible and fit in well within our existing team. You will need to be able to demonstrate the Trust Values within your everyday work.
