Job Role: Registered Mental Health Nurse
Permanent Position

Athona Recruitment is excited to currently be working with a well-known low secure, recovery and rehabilitation facility for both metal illness and personality disorder based in Nottingham.

About the role

You will join a medium secure, recovery and rehabilitation unit for women aged 18years or older with both mental illness and personality disorders. This facility is for women who are stepping down from secure units, or stepping up from community or other inpatient rehabilitation care. The high dependency unit supports women who are of high risk to themselves and need more intensive care than is required in a standard inpatient rehabilitation unit.
All procedures are carried out to the highest standards, optimising the well-being of every patient. You see every person in your care as an individual, and work closely with the wider team to create an environment that delivers skilled care, clear communication, and respect and dignity for everyone. This position will be a mixture of both day and night shifts across the 7 day week, working 4 days one week and 3 the next.

The qualities we are looking for in applicants are:

Relevant UK experience working in a similar position, preferably working in hospitals or mental health units.
Knowledge in the following; Health and Safety, Basic Life Support and Manual Handling, certification dated within the last year - desirable but not essential
DBS registered on the update service
Excellent communication, organisation and interpersonal skills

Applicants must be capable of rising to the challenge of working in new ways and willing to practice autonomously within a busy hands-on environment. You will be supported by, and work with, a diverse multi-skilled experienced professional team of clinical and non-clinical friendly staff.
