Be part of something amazing

CAMHS inpatients are pleased to be able to offer the opportunity for a Band 4 Practitioner to come and join our expanding team

We have a new and exciting purpose built unit The Beacon at the Bradgate site at Leicester Glenfield Hospital coming soon for 15 acute and eating disorder patients aged 13- 18. We are looking for motivated, proactive, enthusiastic and caring professionals to expand our well established team. The role of the Band 4 Practitioner will be to work as part of the nursing team and support in leading on the physical health management of the young people.

We are looking to train staff to a high standard to meet the needs of the new unit and offer a rolling monthly training programme for all staff. We believe all our staff can develop leadership qualities and if you can demonstrate yours there will be opportunities to nurture and develop them.

Child and Adolescent Mental Health expertise and experience is desirable, but NOT essential as we recognize that expertise and experience in adult mental health and physical health is easily transferable. Experience in Eating Disorders is also desirable. In addition we offer opportunities to enhance your existing skills and learn new ones
