Private sector nurse jobs can offer you more

  • Matt Farrah
    Co-Founder, Niche Jobs
Nursing jobs in the NHS are less readily available than 12 months ago, despite reassurances from Government that frontline jobs will be protected. In research published in April, the RCN found that over 5,000 jobs across 21 NHS trusts are at risk of being cut, just a small part of the 40,000 estimated NHS posts that could be axed by 2014. With such a difficult time in recruitment for nurses and midwives in the public sector, we’re looking at whether the time has come to look to the private sector for your career progression. The private sector has always offered a wide range of nursing job opportunities along with a different set of working conditions in a range of nursing specialisms, but now you may be looking with trepidation to the private sector in order to progress your career. You don’t need to fear the change, the private sector has many great benefits, including vacancies throughout the country and often training opportunities included in your contract. Below we’ll look at some of nursing vacancies currently advertised on, and the companies advertising them.

They currently employ 14,000 care and nursing staff in their 220 facilities across the country. They employ healthcare staff at all levels from domiciliary assistants to RGN nurses, RMN nurses and RNLD nurses, and of course Deputy and Home Managers as well. Their services include residential care and supported living for children and adults with learning disabilities, and nursing and specialist care services for the elderly and those with dementia, so you have a wide range of environments to choose from when applying to Barchester Healthcare. If you’re a newly / recently qualified nurse with a current NMC pin number, you will be eligible to apply for a nursing job with Barchester Healthcare. In return they offer a rate of pay that’s higher than the first pay point in band 5, flexible shifts to accommodate family commitments, a structured career pathway and training in accordance with your progression as well as a generous annual leave allowance. If you’re a qualified and experienced nurse looking for a management position, then Barchester Healthcare could also offer the right opportunity for you. They employ both Deputy and Home Managers who must also be qualified nurses. You don’t necessarily need a management qualification in order to apply because Barchester Healthcare sometimes offer to provide this training for you.

I'm fascinated by the career choice we all make. It speaks so much about who we are. People choose to become a nurse or work in medicine or care for one of two reasons. One: simply, they always wanted to be a nurse or social worker or doctor. Two: even more simply, they want a job which helps people. In our blogs we explore the career choice that puts others first.
