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

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a ward-based Clinical Educator to join our team on Ward 36/37 as a 12 month fixed term post. You will be a highly motivated and innovative nurse working to develop our workforce in delivering high quality care to our patients. You will demonstrate exemplary clinical skills and knowledge, including previous experience caring for renal patients, which may include haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis skills.

You will work closely with the ward manager and ward based matron to develop both the clinical and leadership skills of our ward staff. In addition, you will work collaboratively with other members of the MDT to develop an education program for staff encompassing all aspects of renal care.

You will work a mixture of shifts, to meet the needs of our service, including weekends and twilights. On occasion, you also will also be required to lead the team as a Nurse-In-Charge on our 36 bedded ward, comprising of 14 female beds and 22 male beds across the department. Caring with pride and empathy for all our patients suffering with severe conditions including complex renal diseases, acute kidney injury and dialysis patients; due to the complexity of these patients we also provide high quality and compassionate end of life care.

To succeed, you’ll need a mentorship qualification, 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. You’ll also be part of a fantastic and dedicated team that supports each other and operates with consideration and dignity at all times.

You will support the ward manager and ward based matron in delivering trust and national objectives and you will support and manage your own team of staff in delivering these objectives. You will have a proven record of embracing the culture of continuous improvement and can demonstrate how you can work within the service improvement methodologies to improve patient outcomes.

In return for your skills, enthusiasm and commitment, you can expect some truly excellent development and progression opportunities and a comprehensive induction programme with bespoke renal study days tailored for your learning. We hold annual appraisals and regular 1:1 meetings to guide you in the new role and discuss what can be done to support you.

It really is a great opportunity to join a Trust that has an integrated health, teaching, research and innovation campus with state-of-the-art facilities right in the heart of Manchester. As well as offering a diverse range of services to over a million patients a year, our specialist hospitals have a real community feel and are home to hundreds of world-class clinicians and academic staff.
