At the Royal College of Nursing we’re an optimistic organisation. And we’ve got good reason to be. We all share the same voice when it comes to changing the shape of the health policies of the future. And as the largest trade union of nursing staff and students in the UK – with around 435,000 members – all we can see are the infinite possibilities for a brighter future. Join us and you will too.
We're number 44 in The Sunday Times 100 Best Not for Profit Organisations to work, with One Star Best Companies Accreditation for 2019 and are accredited with Investors in People Gold Standard.
As one of our Regional Directors you’ll use your positive attitude and your experiences as a nurse and a leader to improve the working lives of nurses across your region.
It's a job full of possibilities. You’ll be adept at influencing decision makers across the health, social care and political spectrum, will speak for our members and get results.
Every day will be filled with opportunities as you find new ways to lead and support the development of staff and activists in the region. Taking care of and representing our members will be your primary role, but you’ll also see the possibilities that new members can bring. A key part of what you do will be to suggest innovative approaches to grow our membership.
You’ll get involved in campaigns, help shape the organisations thinking on contemporary nursing issues and contribute to national projects.
The ability to foster strong professional relationships and encourage close collaboration between departments is at the heart of this leadership role.
We expect you to look after our members. And we expect you to be rewarded for it. As well as a whole range of learning and development opportunities we can also offer you an impressive range of benefits. We have a highly competitive pay structure, as well as flexible working, and annual leave of up to 32 days.
Balancing work and life commitments is important to us as an organisation. We are a diverse organisation and understand everyone has different needs. All employees can ask for flexible working and when personal circumstances change, we will work with you to find a smarter working solution that suits everyone. In fact, many of our employees enjoy home working, flexible working or compressed hours, enabling them to deliver results with minimum impact to their professional and personal commitments. We also offer generous Maternity, Paternity and Adoption leave packages.
To succeed at the Royal College of Nursing all you need to do is think bigger, better and brighter. And with an attitude like that, anything’s possible.
