Why join our team as a nurse or midwife?

It’s an exciting time to be a nurse or midwife at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals. We believe in providing the best possible care to our patients, and we recognise that the best path to this care is to develop and train our staff.

We want to ensure that our nurses are as skilled as possible and have the opportunity develop and experience a wide range of areas of care. We offer specialty rotation posts for all levels of nursing staff, and a multitude of training courses to help with personal development.

Are you a band 5 nurse or midwife looking for a new challenge? Or a newly qualified nurse looking to gain specialty experience in your first post?

We are currently recruiting for a wide range of specialties including accident and emergency, acute medicine, general medicine, surgery, trauma and orthopaedics, theatres, paediatrics and maternity.
