Here at Southend University Hospital we strive to provide high quality care for every patient, every time.

We would be nothing without our staff. So it goes without saying that when it comes to recruiting new team members, we're looking for the best. We encourage staff to be innovative, to challenge the "as is" and to always put patients first.

We want staff who will live our trust values every day.

Care with compassion, Working together, Professional and accountable



A fantastic opportunity has arisen for Band 5 Nurses to join our Critical Care Unit. A new HDU is also being planned and the successful applicants will work across the two units

The Critical Care Unit is a 10 bedded unit caring for level 2 and level 3 patients from all specialties across the hospital. The proposed HDU will be developed to have 8 beds caring for medical and surgical patients.

You will be required to have some relevant post registration nursing experience in the acute hospital setting.

In return we can offer many career development opportunities and outstanding support to help you achieve your professional goals.

Southend Hospital is an extremely rewarding place to work not only do we offer highly attractive benefits for all employees, such as a very desirable Pension scheme and Staff Discounts, we also boast a number of other incentives, an onsite nursery with discounted prices for staff members and with an initial guaranteed annual leave entitlement of 27 days rising to 33 days after 7 years’ service.
