Drive to appoint theatre and recovery nurses across four Belfast hospitals

By Emma Deighan

Belfast Health and Social Care Trust (BHSCT) has started a recruitment drive for full and part-time band five nurses for theatre and recovery departments in Belfast hospitals.

And among other high profile public sector posts this week are the chief executive role of the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) with a salary of up to £96,949 and a public health nursing officer at the Department of Health with a salary of up to £52,334.

The new NIAS chief will follow in the footsteps of Shane Devlin, who held the role for 11 months. He announced in November that he would leave the post to take up the chief executive role at the Southern Health and Social Care Trust.

In other areas of the public sector, the Northern Ireland Civil Service has four posts available including the role of public health nursing officer, based at Castle Buildings in Stormont.

And a coroner's investigator at the NI Courts and Tribunals Service with a salary of up to £40,072, alongside two other positions at the Department of Communities and the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA), are also available.

In the health sector, BHSCT is seeking full and part-time band five nurses and operating department practitioners (ODPs). The theatre and recovery-based roles are based in a variety of departments including neurosurgery, trauma and orthopaedics, vascular, gynaecology, general, thoracic, urology and renal.

The roles will be spread across the Royal Victoria, Belfast City, Mater and Musgrave Park hospitals.

In education there are five posts advertised this week. They include three roles at Ulster University including a doctoral college manager with a salary between £41,211 and £49,177, a vice-principal post at Ballymena Academy and a history teacher job at Integrated College Dungannon.

In other sectors five finance analysts (Band 5) posts are being sought at the Northern Health and Social Care Trust. Successful candidates will be based on the outskirts of Ballymena.

The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs has also announced that it is seeking to appoint members to the Tuberculosis Eradication Partnership with effect from April 1.
