Ashford and St Peter’s NHS Foundation Trust is looking for Nursing Graduates to join our Adult Nursing Teams across a variety of specialties.

Here at Ashford and St Peters our workforce is diverse and we celebrate the differences in us all by listening and respecting our fantastic nursing teams, which is why we believe we have a nursing opportunity to suit everyone.

We are an award winning, innovative and forward-thinking Foundation Trust. Our Nursing Teams are at the heart of the services we provide to our population in North West Surrey.

Our leadership team provides support and direction in a team where every voice counts and we are keen to get you where you want to be. This means excellent access to courses, training such as in-house programmes and development days and a 12 month Preceptorship programme that will support you to make the transition from Graduate to newly Registered Nurse and beyond.
