Help for Heroes

Help for Heroes – Veterans Community Nurse (Scotland)

***THIS JOB VACANCY HAS NOW CLOSED***

Salary: Up to £42,936.00

Location: Scotland

Closing: 13 December 2023

Hours: Full time 35 hours per week

At Help for Heroes, we help the Armed Forces community live well after service.

Life can be tough when a military career comes to an end, especially if it has been cut short by illness or injury. Overnight, people lose not only their job, but also a support network that is like family. There are many ways we help veterans, their relatives, serving personnel, and people who worked alongside the UK military. We help people with their physical and mental health needs, and a range of welfare issues. Our support gives people the skills, confidence and knowledge to make a success of life after service.

And who are we you’re wondering? We are experts and beginners. Generalists and specialists. Ordinary people with an extraordinary passion towards making a positive change to the lives of our veterans (and having fun while doing it).

As One Team we share a philosophy – I.C.A.R.E. It’s the way we walk and talk, the way we interact with others and how we approach everything we do. We are:

Innovative – Collaborative – Authentic – Resourceful – Energetic.

We have an incredible opportunity for a Veterans Community Nurse in Scotland to join our team.

Please see below for more information on what just might be your future role.
