Increasing demand for our services means that we are looking for more critical care nurses to join our expert team.

We’re looking for nurses from a wide range of backgrounds, including those with a background in general paediatrics and adult nurses with an ICU qualification or intensive care experience looking to make the move into paediatrics.

We can offer you a structured development package and career pathway supported by our team of experienced doctors and nurses including advanced life support courses and paid study days. There are also opportunities to undertake an intensive care course suited to your needs (neonatal or paediatric focus). Once you have your intensive care course, there are also opportunities to work on our very busy Children’s Acute Transport Service.

We can also offer you a competitive salary including a central London uplift, flexible working patterns and help to find accommodation.
