Your Care, Our Passion.

Thornbury Community Services is currently looking to recruit a team of knowledgeable Children Intensive Care nurses (ITU).TCS are a well established provider of complex nursing care in the community placing registered nurses into packages, caring for children and adults living at home.

  • Are you a children's intensive care nurse (RSCN)
  • Do you have experience working with tracheostomies and ventilators?
  • Are you a dedicated, passionate nurse?

If so we'd love to hear from you!

We currently have opportunities for experienced and adaptable individuals that are able to provide commitment and continuity to one of our current care packages in the area.

This is a fulfilling opportunity to support a fun- loving 5 year old girl who enjoys interacting with family and friends. She enjoys being outside exploring the community around her which includes going to school, garden centre and other places of interest. She like playing games, reading books, dress-up, watching programmes on her ipad and role play, especially being a Princess. Her favourite programmes are Paw Patrol, Arthur, Charlie and Lola and Bubble guppies and she tries to get away with watching as much of these on her ipad as possible! She is learning to use Eye- gaze for communication and education and can be very cheeky when using it. Her favourite colours are pink and purple. She lives with her parents and her 9 year old brother who are very important to her.

Our client has Spinal Cord and Acquired Brain Injury which are life transforming conditions which means she relies on technological intervention and clinical support from our team of RSCNs and HCAs.
