People for Patients - Come and join our nursing team

As a large employer we are regularly recruiting for a number of nursing roles, our nurses make a unique contribution to enhance the lives of patients.  In return they are valued and developed to achieve their full potential at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. 

Please see our current nursing vacancies via the links provided within the right hand-side section of this page.  If your preferred specialty or ward is not advertised specifically at present, please submit an application to our generic staff nurse vacancy for either our York or Scarborough site.  Within your application please then state your preferred area of work within the “Supporting Statement” section.

What we can offer you as a nurse joining our Trust

  • Nurses who have completed their qualification and are awaiting NMC registration will be paid at AfC Band 4 (previously Band 2)

  • £750 relocation fee where a nurse is moving 20 miles from an address that was 50 miles from their new work base;

  • £250 payment* to any staff member for referrals which lead to appointment (paid after the new starter completes 3-months in post)

  • As an organisation we understand that we need to support you in your first nursing role and help you transition from a pre-registered nurse to a staff nurse. We support our new starters by offering a preceptorship which will help you transition into your new role seamlessly.  Graduating nurses joining our Trust receive an exceptional 12 month preceptorship programme, supported by a dedicated preceptor to help them attain the competencies in their chosen clinical area. To enable this, we offer 12 study days through the year, as well as regular access to our senior nursing team.  We are fully committed to supporting your transition from a student to a registered nurse during your first 12 months of qualifying. 

We also offer a wide range of benefits which you can view by visiting the Trust's dedicated Staff Benefits pages.
