Relief Staff Nurse



St. Patrick’s Missionary Society is looking for a Relief Staff Nurse for its Care Unit for retired missionary priests in the beautiful countryside of Kiltegan, Co. Wicklow. The small unit which is fully integrated in the St Patrick’s community offers a friendly and relaxed environment for residents and staff, all of whom are highly valued and respected.

This is an ‘if and when’ contract and may suit a candidate working part-time with another employer as Relief Nurses are not required to be available for particular shifts and working hours are not guaranteed.

The successful candidate should have:

  • Two years’ nursing experience (at least)
  • Registered General Nursing qualification preferred
  • Full registration with NMBI
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Genuine interest in working with the elderly
  • Previous elderly care experience is desirable


  • Assistance with accommodation (if required)
  • Paid meal breaks
  • Free car parking
