Are you a nurse interested in a career in Substance Misuse? Are you motivated to help service users engage in their recovery journey? Are you a car owner/driver? Are you flexible?

Would you like an opportunity to join our exciting and innovative Specialist Substance Misuse Service? I-access is seen as a forward thinking and innovative service. It has been a high performing service for many years and has remained in the NHS since it started over 3 decades ago. Quality standards are a high priority for the service and for Surrey County Council.

Due to the high performance of i-access over many years Surrey County Council and SABP have worked together to find a commissioning model that did not cause the damage and service disruption procurement processes can often result in. i-access is now jointly delivered by Surrey County Council and Surrey and Borders under a cooperation agreement. This is an ongoing agreement, which enables i-access to continue to deliver a quality service to Surrey residents without the disruption of an impending procurement process

We are offering a Band 5 opportunity with a developmental plan to Band 6 after 18 – 24 months (subject to evidence of competency). Flexibility will be offered to nurses with experience in mental health community settings.

We are looking for dynamic nurses, who have genuine interest in and empathy for people with a drug and alcohol addiction. We have 1 nursing post for candidates who are comfortable travelling to and working in a variety of settings. This post is based at Farnham Road Hospital, Farnham Road, Guildford.

The post involves working as part of a Multidisciplinary Team providing group work for those Pre and Post detoxification and some 1:1 key work support for service users using both drugs and alcohol as part of their Recovery Treatment Plan. Experience in group work is an advantage and training will be provided. The role is varied and exciting.

The successful applicants will have experience of working within a vulnerable client group, have excellent written and verbal communication skills as well as an understanding of problems faced by people with substance misuse issues.
