We save lives but we don’t work in hospitals. No two days are the same in this fast moving and variable environment. Our teams work in static Donor Centres facilitating blood and platelet donations and also travel out to the community where our donors attend our mobile teams.

As a Senior Sister/Charge Nurse you will work closely with the Area Manager/Matron providing visible leadership to a Blood Donation team.

In this autonomous role, you will lead from the front and work alongside your team acting as a role model, demonstrating what it takes to deliver a great donor experience.

No prior specialist clinical knowledge is required for this band 7 role however we are looking for a senior nurse with some management experience. If you are able to work independently, lead with compassion and resilience, and are excited by the prospect of enabling change in a fast moving environment, then this is the job for you. We will provide you with the training you need to enable you to attain NHSBT’s Management Passport with access to a wide range of leadership development opportunities and career progression.
