We are looking to recruit a highly motivated individual to join our young and dynamic team to work in our adult acute inpatient ward; we are looking to achieve accreditation for AIMS.

What's the role?

You will be an RMN with outstanding communication skills. You will be a team player, able to work innovatively and be highly committed to providing holistic care with a passion to improve the patient experience for service users. You will be able to apply the philosophies of engagement and recovery in your work with service users. The role involves responsibility for the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of holistic care and the promotion of issues of equality and diversity in accordance with good practice and legislation.

You must be confident, approachable, and sensitive to the issues faced by people who are in the most acute and challenging phase of their journey towards recovery.

Who are you?

You will be a fully qualified Mental Health Nurse, registered with the NMC and dedicated to providing top-quality service to those in your care. To be the successful applicant, you will be able to apply the philosophies of engagement, recovery, and positive and proactive care in your work with service users. With your outstanding communication skills you will join a team that works innovatively to demonstrate their commitment to providing compassionate care and improving the patient experience.

You will work closely with the Ward Manager and clinical leads in managing the Inpatient ward, ensuring the provision and development of a growing, top quality service. We are looking for nurses with an understanding of both national and local targets affecting the NHS today.

Prior experience as a Band 5 would be preferable but is not essential, as we would also welcome applications from preceptees. There is the expectation you will undertake the Mentorship course in conjunction with Bournemouth University in order that you can supervise and support their students. You will receive regular Supervision, Annual Appraisals and will be offered training opportunities to meet your Personal Development Plan.

Applications from qualified job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications.

Who are we?

Here at Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, we are really proud of our colleagues and their achievements. We value our people and their extraordinary commitment to our patients and our organisation - together, we are dedicated to working as one team to make a difference to people's lives. We are keen to employ people who share the same vision and values as us. In return, we give nationally agreed rates of pay, locally agreed recognition and benefits schemes, and dedication to supporting your continual professional development.
