Covering East & West Midlands

Nottingham or Birmingham office with hybrid working

35 hours per week, 12-month secondment/Fixed term contract

£47,745 - £53,934 per annum pro rata*

As an RCN Officer (job evaluation project) you’ll use your can-do attitude, your knowledge of agenda for change and job evaluation together with your ability to secure wins in the workplace for groups of RCN members.

Every day will be filled with possibilities as you find ways to engage our members in RCN work to ensure their jobs are properly evaluated and fairly rewarded. Empowering and supporting our members will be your primary role, but you’ll also need to work with staff and reps and help increase our capacity to take-on and win improvements for job evaluation.

To join us you’ll need experience of working with NHS job evaluation processes and the ability to support groups of members in employment relation cases.

You’ll also need the ability to foster strong professional relationships, maintain a visible presence in your designated regions and establish yourself as the local go-to person for job evaluation matters. To succeed at the Royal College of Nursing all you need to do is think bigger, better and brighter. And with an attitude like that, anything’s possible.

What we offer you

We expect you to look after our members and we expect you to be rewarded for it. We offer an impressive range of benefits, a broad range of learning development opportunities and an award-winning health and wellbeing programme.

We offer annual leave up to 32 days plus bank holidays and three additional days for the Christmas break plus generous maternity, adoption, paternity, and shared parental leave packages.

*We offer a competitive pay structure with annual pay progression until you reach the top of the salary scale. We normally offer new employees the first point of the salary range, although you may be able to negotiate a higher starting salary depending on your skills, experience and current salary.

What we deliver for our members is wide and varied so when it comes to how we work one size doesn’t fit all. We also know that to empower our people to do their best work, they must be able to balance the demands of work and home. We are a diverse organisation and understand everyone has different needs and many of our employees enjoy flexible working enabling them to deliver results whilst having a good work life balance. Departments and directorates have their own hybrid ways of working which put the needs of the service they deliver – whether that’s to members or to colleagues - at their heart, in alignment with our hybrid working core principles. At the RCN it’s unlikely you will work from home for all of your working time. Equally no one is excepted to work solely in the office unless your role requires it. You can find out more by having a discussion with the recruiting manager.
