*Senior Mental Health Nurse*
£32,306 – £39,027 per annum pro rata (Band 6)
Location: Langdon Hospital, Dawlish
*About Devon Partnership Trust*
We provide mental health and learning disability services, as well as a range of specialist and secure services for the wider south west region and nationally. Above all, we are passionate about promoting good mental health and wellbeing – our mission is to become a centre of excellence and expertise in mental health and learning disability.
This is a great opportunity to join one of the most respected providers of secure mental health services in the UK. You will be part of our admissions nursing therapy team based on our Ashcombe ward, a 15-bed male inpatient ward within the recently built, state-of-the-art Dewnans Centre.
You will hold a key post in our recovery pathway, providing direct nursing care for men who have been in involved in the legal system due to their mental health needs. You will engage in a range of therapeutic interventions including dialetical behaviour therapy and cognitive analytic therapy interventions, and your work will make a significant impact in the lives of vulnerable people across Devon and beyond.
Being part of the admissions team comes with several advantages. We offer a fast-paced, supportive environment focused on career development, staff wellbeing, inclusion and innovation. It is also an exciting time to join us – as well as expanding our services, we are currently involved in a national project focusing on Reducing Restrictive Practice.
You will be a qualified registered mental health or learning disability nurse and, although it is desirable to hold qualifications in other recovery-based therapies such as dialetical behaviour therapy and cognitive analytic therapy, it is not essential.
Due to the nature of the role, all staff are required to both attend and pass a physical interventions assessment as you may be involved in managing incidents on a regular basis. This is a requirement to ensure we meet the needs of our patients and remain effective in maintaining the safety and wellbeing of all.
*Our offer to you*
We recognise our people want to learn and develop, becoming the best that they can be. We offer all our staff a range of training opportunities including a variety of in-house training programmes designed and delivered by experts, and opportunities to access external training where appropriate. Once you are part of the team, you will also be entitled to a range of benefits including 27 days annual leave, an NHS pension, flexible working, health and wellbeing initiatives and good maternity, paternity and adoption policies.
On top of this, working with us means working in the beautiful coastal town of Dawlish, an area of stunning scenery with 111 acres of countryside around the hospital alone.
*Covid Vaccination Requirement*
The Government has formally announced that it intends to introduce regulations that will require most healthcare workers to be fully vaccinated (1st & 2nd dose) against COVID-19 by 1st April 2022. To achieve this the successful applicant must have had their 1st COVID-19 vaccination by 3rd February 2022. Therefore, full COVID-19 vaccination will be a condition of employment unless an individual is medically exempt. We will ask for proof of vaccination during the recruitment process.
