Are you looking for a role where you help and support your team in providing excellent levels of care in service user’s own homes?

Would you like to join a trust that believes that its staff are its most valuable asset and ensures that they have the support and training needed to not only provide outstanding care but also to get their career on the right track and receive a golden handshake of £2500 to do so ?

If so then we would love to talk to you!!

We are currently recruiting for registered professionals inspired to help people who need intensive short-term help at home, either as an alternative to hospital admission, or in the transition phase when returning home from hospital.

The Team maintains our focus on providing quality Home Treatment both during supported discharge and as an alternative to Hospital admission.

You would be joining a Trust that has a Philosophy of Recovery based practice, and you will have the opportunity to contribute to the working within an established CRHT Team.

Our aim is to provide the kind of Service that we would expect for ourselves, or for someone that we love and care for. A service that promotes self-direction, independence and choice, that respects the individual, and provides the treatment and help that is needed as a priority

As a Band 6 practitioner you will be taking a lead role in the team, supervising and supporting other team members, and will be expected to have the skills and knowledge that will facilitate effective care being delivered to service users in their own homes.

As a registered professional you will automatically become a member of our Academy of Clinical Excellence (ACE) which has a specific focus on the professional development and career progression of our nurses and Allied Health Professionals. As part of ACE’s commitment to you, our development pathway for band 6’s focuses on enhancing your competence and confidence as a senior clinician and leader. As such, you will have access to masters level academic study with our partner universities as well as access to a variety of internal and external leadership programmes, workshops and support tools. The Academy encourages all our registrants to engage with service improvement, research and facilitating learning and a range of opportunities to support these core professional activities is available from ACE. To help you progress your journey with us, you will have access to a ‘Career Navigation’ conversation which will help you explore your career aspirations and make decisions about your career trajectory.

The post-holder will develop and maintain professional supportive relationships with all members of staff with other professionals and agencies to enhance recovery and co-ordinate and monitor the delivery of person-centered healthcare.

Prospective applicants would be welcome to come and join the Team for a day to learn more about the role of the team and the positive culture in which we practice. If you would like to discuss your interest in this post please do contact us on the number below:
