About the role and our team
Join our dedicated nurse-led team on the Eric and Marion Scott Oncology Day Unit as a Chemotherapy Nurse!
Our state-of-the-art oncology unit opened in 2019, and we provide 11 treatment chairs for systemic anticancer therapies and an on-suite for supportive treatments. We have a Macmillan Acute Oncology Nurse-led service and nurse-led PICC placement service.
Currently our clinical team consists of a range of roles including (but not limited to) Macmillan Acute Oncology Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP), Acute Oncology Support Nurse, Senior Sister Chemotherapy, Chemotherapy Sisters, Chemotherapy Nurses and Health Care Assistants. We are expanding our team to support current patient needs and service demands.
In this role you will be responsible for the patients attending the infusion unit, administering systemic anticancer therapies and support therapies. Working alongside the senior sister and chemotherapy sisters, you’ll have the opportunity to develop your career in haemato-oncology and further train in the care of haemato-oncology patients.
If you would like to work with a supportive team in a dynamic, well-established but continually developing unit, then come and join our team where no two days are the same!
What can this role offer me?
By joining us you’ll be stepping away from NHS pressures and demands, as the Island’s healthcare system is similar but separate to the UK NHS.
We are a nurse-led unit which allows nurses to develop skills and competencies and reach their full potential.
You will have access to excellent development facilities and support, including our on-site education & training centre Keyll Darree. Our nursing and management teams strongly encourage personal and professional development.
We have free on-site car parking at Noble’s Hospital and can be flexible with what days you work within the week. You’ll also receive a competitive salary with incremental pay progression and excellent holiday entitlement.
Manx Care is committed to creating smoke-free spaces and is ‘proud to be smoke free’ as part of the overall Isle of Man Smoke Free 2030 ambition. As of April 1st 2021 smoking is no longer permitted on our Manx Care & DHSC sites, including nursing, residential and EMI units around the Island.
About the Island and relocating
Here you can enjoy a fantastic quality of life, and an excellent work-life balance! There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities; so if you like walking, mountain biking, sailing or kayaking, you’ll have lots of places to explore!
There are also lots of great cafes, bars and restaurants, and you can enjoy the Island’s real sense of community. The island is well connected to the UK, and you’ll also benefit from low income tax rates (20% maximum rate).
If you are relocating or returning to the Island, you can also benefit from the National Insurance Holiday Scheme, which allows you to apply for a refund on your NI contributions for your 1st year of living here.
A relocation package of up to £7,000 based on receipts is available for this role. Housing Assistance is also available where the Department will pay the difference between your current mortgage/rent bill, and that of your new accommodation on the Isle of Man, up to a maximum of £250 per month. This role also qualifies for a recruitment incentive of £3,000, payable in the 1st, 13th, and 25th months of employment.
