The new 35 hour per week post will hopefully attract an “energetic nurse leader”.
The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) is looking to recruit a Director of Nursing, Deputy Chief Executive and General Secretary.
The new 35 hour per week, permanent post will hopefully attract an “energetic nurse leader” who is able to “be a key spokesperson on health and social care issues across the UK”.
Only last month the College announced a new temporary General Secretary after Dame Donna Kinnair was placed on sick leave following a cycling incident.
It will become one of eleven roles within the organisation that attracts a salary of above £100,000 per year after it was revealed that the salary of the boss at the RCN had risen to a massive £197,000 per year.
The job advert published on the RCN Careers website makes no mention of the College’s trade union activity or ongoing fight for fair pay.
A key spokesperson.
It reads; “We are looking for an energetic nurse leader to work as a key member of our UK Executive Team as well as directing our dedicated staff team in the Nursing directorate.
“You will be a key spokesperson on health and social care issues across the UK.
“The role has responsibilities to report into both the UK governance structure and to the Professional Nursing Committee.
“You will be supported by the nearly 100+ strong Nursing Directorate, working across nursing quality and regulation, nursing practice and professional leads, education, learning & development, and library/archive services.”
Recruitment is being handled by top recruitment firm FWB Park Brown.
