We are looking to recruit an experienced, motivated and enthusiastic Ward Manager for the 20 bedded Cardiology Ward, 5 bedded Coronary Care Unit and small Cardiac Day Unit at The Princess Royal Hospital, Telford.  The post holder will be responsible for a team of approximately 45 staff.

This is a demanding and rewarding role that requires commitment and a positive approach towards change at this time of developing services within the Cardiology Unit.  We are at present installing a new Cardiac Catheterisation Lab.  The successful candidate must have a proven ability in supervising, managing and controlling the activities of a ward in an effective and efficient manner.

You will be a clinical role model and have a willingness to develop the team as well as your own professional growth, role modelling best practice.

You will need excellent communication skills and high clinical standards with a passion to make a difference for patients and staff alike.

We are also interested in individuals who can demonstrate our Trust Values - this is very important to us.

You must have a minimum of extensive post registration experience with relevant Band 6 (or equivalent), experience in an acute setting - experience within Cardiology is preferable.

We in turn will assist you with developing the required skills for the role especially around people management and the ‘art’ of mentoring and coaching in practice. All the skills required to advance in your ‘management’ career will be reviewed with you as part of your professional development.

The well-being of our staff is of the upmost importance to us.  If you are offered a role at our Trust, and fall into the increased and higher risk categories as set out by Public Health England (PHE) and NHSI/E, your line manager will complete an risk assessment with you.  This will be completed in conjunction with the latest guidance from Public Health England in relation to Covid-19.
