Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is one of the largest acute Trusts in the UK, employing over 20,000 staff.

We are responsible for running a family of nine hospitals across six separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital care through to highly specialised regional and national services.

We are the main provider of hospital care to approximately 750,000 people in Manchester and Trafford and the single biggest provider of specialised services in the North West of England. We are also the lead provider for a significant number of specialised services including Breast Care, Vascular, Cardiac, Respiratory, Urology Cancer, Paediatrics, Women’s Services, Ophthalmology and Genomic Medicine.

Our vision is to improve the health and quality of life of our diverse population by building an organisation that:

  • Excels in quality, safety, patient experience, research, innovation and teaching
  • Attracts, develops and retains great people
  • Is recognised internationally as a leading healthcare provider

Whether you’re a student nurse or already qualified and looking to return to the profession, Trafford Hospital has just the job. That’s because, right now, we’re looking to recruit a number of nurses across our Neurological Rehabilitation Unit. 

Join us and you’ll have the opportunity to work in our regional 30 bedded Centre for Neurological Rehabilitation. The ward has some great accolades including silver accreditation, and nomination for a team Proud of You Award. 

Specialising in complex neurological rehabilitation such as managing acquired brain injury, multiple sclerosis and motor neurone disease. You will have the benefit of working in a multi-professional team including psychologists, specialist nurse and therapeutic activity coordinator, so there are endless opportunities to develop your skills, knowledge and experience in this field.

To succeed, you’ll need to be committed to delivering high quality, patient focused care with pride and respect, have excellent interpersonal skills and be able to provide evidence of personal and professional development. 

For newly qualified nurses the Trust has a robust preceptorship programme and you will receive excellent opportunities for development. Along the way, you will be supported by in-house Clinical Educators and strong nurse leaders who will oversee your training needs, supported by the wider divisional education team.

In return for your skills, enthusiasm and commitment, you can expect a truly excellent comprehensive induction programme whilst being part of a fantastic and dedicated team that supports each other and operates with consideration and dignity at all times. The unit offers opportunities for career progression within the specialty. 

It really is a great chance to join a go-ahead Trust that has an integrated health, teaching, research and innovation campus with state-of-the-art facilities right in the heart of Manchester.
