Would you like to join us at Melbury Lodge where we provide you with excellent training, support and development opportunities?

Due to internal staff promotions we are currently recruiting for a mental health nurse to join us at Melbury Lodge in our Mother & Baby unit on a permanent contract.

Melbury Lodge is located close to the Solent Coast and the beautiful New Forest National Park and have excellent transportation links, either by rail (direct to Waterloo) and by road (M3/M27).

Main duties of the job

We are looking to appoint nurses who are highly motivated, enthusiastic, flexible and resourceful individuals who are committed to providing support and assistance to patients in their recovery.

Perinatal mental health is a very rewarding area to work in not only for the outcomes for our service users but also the training opportunities we have from specialist Perinatal training courses across the country and psychological interventions training. But most importantly, personal development, (this year alone we have promoted 6 nurses internally from within the unit).

Our Trust also offers a competitive staff benefits package to make sure our staff are well looked after, and make sure they receive what they deserve to make them feel valued.

If this sounds interested to you, please get in touch! We would love to hear from you!
