Are you a senior nurse looking to utilise your skills in a strategic role?
Do you want to achieve an excellent work-life balance, working in a stunning location, free from NHS pressures and demands?
We’re looking for a Band 8b Matron to join our team in the Hospitals Directorate.
Based at Noble’s Hospital, you will form part of our leadership team, taking responsibility for the strategic development of nursing, quality and clinical practice within one of our large care groups (approx. 90 beds and out-patient services).
What will a career with us offer you?
This is a varied role where you can really develop and stretch your leadership skills. You’ll contribute to our strategic direction, working with us to ensure high quality patient led services are being developed and delivered.
You’ll also be joining us at a really exciting time, as we’ve recently developed our island wide Nursing and Midwifery framework (developed from feedback from over 130 of the islands nurses and midwives), and you’ll take a leading role in implementing the actions derived from this framework.
You’ll have a strong support network within the Hospitals Directorate, and you’ll be able to build and maintain the links and connections we have with various NHS trusts and networks in the UK.
You’ll also be able to take advantage of the excellent opportunities we provide for personal and professional development. This includes use of our on-site education and training centre and the fantastic range of fully funded courses we support. If you are looking to make the step up to this exciting role, we will fully support you to make this transition.
You’ll also receive a competitive salary with incremental pay progression and excellent holiday entitlement.

What about the island and relocating?
Here you can enjoy a fantastic quality of life! 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.
You’ll keep more of your hard earned salary, as the Isle of Man is offering a National Insurance Holiday Scheme; this allows you to apply for a refund on your National Insurance contributions for your first year of living or returning to the Isle of Man.
If you’re relocating, we also offer interview expenses and a relocation package of up to £7,000, alongside subsidised accommodation and housing assistance. Find out more about this scheme in the relocation leaflet below.
