Would you like to join an innovative organisation committed to ensuring delivery of the best care by the best people?

  • Come along to our Warren Court/4 Bowlers Green Recruitment Event on Tuesday 12th July at Woodlands Community Hub in Leavesden Country Park, Abbots Langley. The event starts at 12:00 midday and will finish no later than 3.30pm. Initial interviews will be held on the day, time permitting, so please come prepared.

The Role: We are looking to recruit additional registered nurses to join our hard-working and committed teams at Warren Court, our Hertfordshire-based medium secure unit for people with learning disabilities. This is the perfect opportunity for Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Nurses seeking a new challenge in a dynamic and rewarding environment where no two days are the same.

The Ideal Candidate: Our service-users are our number one priority, so we need people who are committed to supporting others, even at more challenging times. Excellent communication, interpersonal, organisational and team-working skills are essential for this role, as well as the ability to use initiative and act in a calm manner. The successful candidate will also need to reflect the Trust’s key values by being welcoming, kind, positive, respectful and professional at all times.

Job Overview: On a day-to-day basis, the role will involve assessing, planning and implementing evidence-based care, working as part of a multi-disciplinary clinical team, and as the named nurse for an identified group of service users. The post-holder will also help run shifts and assist the team leader, supporting and acting as a positive role model to more junior members of the team. Working hours will involve shifts, including some nights, weekends and bank holidays.

Qualifications And Training: Successful candidates must have RNMH/RNLD/RMN and be registered with the NMC. Previous relevant experience is desirable but not essential as we offer training to ensure staff are skilled to the highest standards and feel confident in their ability to do the job well. We also offer a fantastic one-year preceptorship programme for newly registered nurses that allows them to develop their clinical, communication and leadership skills within a structured framework of support and development.

  • 27 days annual leave, rising to 29 days after 5 years and 33 days after 10 years
  • Access to one of the UK's best pension schemes
