Are you an experienced renal health care support worker looking to enhance your knowledge and skill base and further your career as a renal assistant practitioner?

A vacancy has arisen for the above position within Tayside Renal Services.  This vacancy offers the opportunity for a successful candidate to gain specific knowledge and skills within NHS Tayside Renal Services. The post holder will be expected to work across the entire renal service and participate in the SVQ3 educational programme. Clinical knowledge and practical experience in the nursing care of the renal patient is essential for this post.

It is essential for this role that candidates are aware that this post involves cross site working within Ward 22, Ninewells Renal Dialysis Unit, Perth and Arbroath Renal Dialysis Satellite Units.

Kimberley Grant, Ward 22, Renal Service, Tele: 01382 660111 Ext 33201/33822


Hours of work are:  Full-time position 37 hours per week

NHS Scotland is reducing their full time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay.  This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff.  This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours.  However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Recruiting Board.
