A Vacancy at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust.


We are Manchester Local Care Organisation - an exciting, public sector organisation that is bringing together NHS community health services and social care services in the city. We’re driven by the aim of improving the health of local people in Manchester by working across organisational boundaries.

Our teams work as one in the neighbourhoods they serve – delivering and designing services in partnership with local people. We also provide key services that work across wider localities and city-wide. We believe that our pioneering approach will make a massive difference to the health of people in our city and we are looking for you to join our team and help us do this.

MFT is a major acute teaching Trust which is recognised as a centre of clinical excellence and provides a wide range of health services to the areas of South Manchester.

The Community Nursing Service is a 7 day service with variable shift patterns available between 8am-10pm. To join us, you will need to demonstrate a keen interest in the field of Community Nursing, together with a genuine desire to develop both the service and yourself. Due to the nature of the role, it is essential that you possess a full driving licence and have access to a car.

Holding a Community Specialist Practitioner (CSP) qualification for District Nursing and a Registered General Nurse (RGN) qualification you will be required to work as part of our developing Neighbourhood team to lead and co-ordinate nursing teams to provide complex nursing care to adults in their own home and in a variety of settings within the community. You will work closely with the MDT (Social Workers, GP’s and Allied Health Professionals) to ensure that patient care is effectively co-ordinated, demonstrating a positive impact on our patients. You will work alongside the team leader collaboratively to ensure delivery of high quality care and efficient use of resources. The role will encompass deputising for the team leader in their absence.

In return for your commitment, we show our care for our staff through excellent development and progression opportunities. This includes a comprehensive induction programme and to enhance your skills in your speciality, we also offer a range of internal and external courses, and have a strong focus on staff wellbeing.





MFT is England’s largest NHS Trust with a turnover of £2.5bn & is on a different scale than most other NHS Trusts. We’re creating an exceptional integrated health & social care system for the 1 million patients who rely on our services every year.

Bringing together 10 hospitals & community services from across Manchester, Trafford & beyond, we champion collaborative working & transformation, encouraging our 28,000 workforce to pursue their most ambitious goals. We set standards that other Trusts seek to emulate so you’ll benefit from a scale of opportunity that is nothing short of extraordinary.

We’ve also created a digitally enabled organisation to improve clinical quality, patient & staff experience, operational effectiveness & driving research and innovation through the introduction of Hive; our brand-new Electronic Patient Record system which we’ve launched in September 2022.

We’re proud to be a major academic Research Centre & Education provider, providing you with a robust infrastructure to encourage and facilitate high-quality research programmes. What’s more, we’re excited to be embarking on our new Green Plan which will set out how MFT continues to play its part in making healthcare more sustainable.

At MFT, we create and foster a culture of inclusion and belonging, provide equal opportunities for career development that are fair, open and transparent, protecting your health and wellbeing and shaping the future of our organisation together.

So that you’re even more equipped to make an informed decision to apply to us, you’ll need to take time to read the ‘Candidate Essentials Guide’that sits with the Job Description and Person Specification.
