Specialist Neurofibromatosis Nurse – Wales

AFC Band 7

Salary Scale: £37,570 to £43,772 per annum pro rata

Hours: Part Time 15 hours per week

Due to additional funding Nerve Tumours UK have an exciting opportunity for a part time Specialist Neurofibromatosis Nurse in Wales. We are looking for a caring specialist nurse, ideally with experience of Neurofibromatosis 1 and/or 2, to work with individuals affected by these conditions in Wales. The role is focused on providing support, information and advice for individuals and families with (or at risk of) neurofibromatosis.  This will include appointments with children and adults both in the community and in specialist multi-disciplinary clinics. The post holder will work closely with the consultant clinical geneticists specialising in these conditions. 

The post will be based at University Hospital of Wales, but appointments will take place in a combination of clinic venues, schools and patients’ homes and flexibility to travel to these will be a vital part of the role. 

The ideal candidate would have experience working with individuals with Neurofibromatosis, knowledge of the genetic basis of the conditions and experience of working with families. Counselling training and/or experience would be an advantage.

Access to a car insured for business use and a full driving licence are essential as travel is an important part of the role. The post is currently for 15 hours per week but there may be possibility for additional hours in future.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.

Closing Date:  6th August 2020

The Charity: Nerve Tumours UK (the trading name of The Neurofibromatosis Association, Charity no. 1078790/SC045051) works to improve the lives of those affected by Neurofibromatosis, one of the world’s most common neuro - genetic conditions. The charity, which is the authoritative voice of Neurofibromatosis in the UK, funds a team of Specialist Advisors (medical professionals) and a helpline to support children, adults and their families.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website.

We are committed to promoting inclusion, where every staff member has a sense of belonging. We welcome applications from everyone and actively seek a diverse range of applicants. We value our differences and fully advocate, cultivate and support an inclusive working environment where staff treat one another with dignity and respect. We aim to create an equitable working environment where every individual can fulfil their potential no matter their disability, sex, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, age, religion or belief, pregnancy and maternity or marriage and civil partnership status.

Applicants are invited to apply in Welsh, any application submitted in Welsh will not be treated less favourably than an application made in English.
