A fantastic opportunity is now available for a Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN) to join a specialist mental health service at their modern, purpose-built campus in Accrington.

Based primarily around the Dialectical Behaviour Therapy model of care, the MDT implements tailored programmes of therapeutic rehabilitation and support to young people aged 13-19 years with complex social, emotional and mental health needs and who may have a history of trauma.

This rewarding role will have you as part of a strong MDT providing targeted support across two 10-bed units (encompassing psychiatric assessment and stabilisation, rehabilitation, and step-down services) to promote recovery and a smooth transition to more community-based care. Plans are in the works to expand for solo placements and semi-independent flats as well.

Due to being a smaller independent service, there is a much less intensive environment than in a traditional CAMHS hospital setting. As a result, you will be able to enjoy a more equal work-life balance and a greater focus on the positive, meaningful impact you can enact.

This is a permanent, full-time (37.5h) role for a Registered Mental Health Nurse with a flexible shift pattern. Part-time may also be considered for this role.

 

Person specification:

  • (Essential) Registration with the NMC as a Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN).
  • (Desirable) Previous professional experience in CAMHS.

 

Benefits/enhancements include:

  • Enhanced annual leave package
  • Free on-site parking
  • Enhanced sick pay package
  • Private pension scheme
  • Strong culture of clinical support and supervision
  • Regular further learning and development opportunities
  • Clinical supervision course costs reimbursed
  • Professional registration renewal fees reimbursed
  • DBS fees reimbursed
