This is an exciting time for ELFT. Our vision is to make a positive difference to people's lives by improving quality of life for all we serve. Our values are: We Care, We Respect, We are Inclusive – so we are looking for people who live and breathe these qualities when supporting service users and carers, and in their relationships with colleagues in the Trust and our partner organisations.

We are recruiting to a new exciting post Roald Dahl Transition Care Community Nurse
Band 7
The Specialist Childrens and Young Peoples Services (SCYPS) at East London Foundation NHS Trust are wonderfully pleased to announce, that in conjunction with Roald Dahls Marvellous Childrens Charity we are seeking to recruit a marvellously motivated and enthusiastic Community Paediatric Nurse to develop this innovative role as a Transition Care Community Nurse Specialist for Young People with special educational needs and complex disabilities in Newham, East London.

ELFT has been named one of the HSJ Top 10 best places to work in healthcare, HSJ Provider Trust of the Year and graded as Outstanding by our regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in 2018. We believe that staff who feel valued by the Trust and are truly engaged in the organisation deliver better outcomes for our patients. This Trust is clinician-led, and provides the highest possible level of clinical expertise throughout its services. We have set ourselves the mission to improve the quality of life of all we serve, and have embarked on an ambitious Quality Improvement Programme to transform the culture of the Trust to one of continuous improvement, delivered through participation of all staff and with service users, carers and families at the heart of our efforts to improve.

Each year SCYPS accepts approximately 350 young people aged 11-18 onto its specialist services caseload. Approximately 30% of teenagers on our caseload have a chronic health condition, and many young people accessing our services have complex needs.

The successful post holder will have a key role in empowering young people with complex disabilities and special educational needs and their families to transition effectively into adulthood and to provide support, information and practical care during the period of navigating the move from Children's to Adult Community Services. You will work with front line staff in SCYPS and related teams in the community and acute services to strengthen the care we provide for young people with SEND and to improve their experience of transitioning to adulthood.

In partnership with Roald Dahls Marvellous Childrens Charity, we are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic community nurse with experience caring for young people with complex disabilities and special educational needs. We are looking for an exceptional nurse who would "never do anything by halves" and would be outrageously passionate about making a splendiferous difference in the lives of the young people and their families in Newham.

This is an exciting opportunity, and if you are ready to take that next step with your career, we would love to hear from you. The successful applicant will be eligible to access the Roald Dahl Professional Development Package which will help them develop their career and the service.
