If youre looking for a meaningful role where you can deliver high quality care to people experiencing mental health problems and work collaboratively with patients and their families, then this could be the role for you! Our terms and conditions are not Agenda for Change; however our pay bands equate to the UK NHS bands and have advantageous pay scales.

You will be proactive and innovative, whilst being a visible and approachable leadership presence on the ward. You will be able to respond to competing demands within an acute mental health admission setting.

About us

At many of our locations youll have access to free on-site car parking. People who relocate here can also get a refund on their National Insurance contributions for the first year of living here.
