Contract Type
We have an exciting opportunity for a Cardiac Nurse to be part our dynamic Support team who are passionate about supporting patients living with heart and circulatory diseases, their families and the general public.

Last year we dealt with over 25,000 enquiries alone; as Cardiac Nurse you'll provide high quality information and support on heart and circulatory conditions including coronary heart disease, stroke and vascular dementia as well as their risk factors including diabetes, hypercholesterolemia and high blood pressure.

Working in an office environment you'll help, both over the telephone and in writing, heart patients and their families every day, whether it is those living with a heart or circulatory condition or helping to prevent them in the first place. Utilising your knowledge and experience, you'll provide support to hundreds of heart patients.

About you

You'll need to have a professional and confident telephone manner with the ability to explain cardiac information in a clear and simple manner, demonstrating empathy and compassion as required. You'll also have excellent written communication skills as you'll be responding to customers through emails and letters as well as the BHF online community.

An NMC Registered Nurse you'll have extensive experience of cardiac nursing within an acute clinical environment. You'll also have in-depth knowledge of the risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease and up-to-date knowledge of a wide range of cardiac conditions, including relevant investigations and treatments.

This is an excellent opportunity to step away from a clinical environment and learn new skills to take your nursing career in a different direction.

Please note this role is part-time, working every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, from 9am to 5pm. The role is based at our Head Office in London with no scope for home working.
