We are looking to recruit a band 5 Nurse to join our In-Reach and Home Treatment Team.

We are looking for either a Newly-Qualified Nurse or someone who is already qualified to join us, to develop into the role of a CPN.

We would be keen to support someone through their preceptorship and personal and professional development, offering support and a range of experiences.

Your first year with us would, whether it is as part of your preceptorship or not, involve you working across the team, learning about the different roles of our CPN's.

The primary goal of the service is to support people within their own homes, who are experiencing a breakdown of their mental health and to prevent admissions to hospital where appropriate.

We have a distinct In-Reach team within our service , who work with ward 1 to offer intensive discharge support and offer lots of different therapeutic interventions.

This would be a wonderful learning opportunity for the right person and whilst we cannot guarantee timescales we would expect this to evolve into a band 6 post at the right time for both us and you.

We cover Derby City and the the surrounding areas of Derbyshire.

Experience of working with older adults with a functional, mental health illness will be an advantage.

The successful applicant will work within a supportive MDT and have close links with the Community Mental Health Teams, GPs and social care.

We are also co-located with our established, Dementia Rapid Response Team.

Professional development and further learning is encouraged and you will receive robust clinical and managerial supervision, along with wider support and training in-house within the team.

You will also be expected to supervise students.

The team works a shift pattern covering, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm; this includes Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.

The team covers 365 days a year, the ability to work shifts is essential.

This is a wonderful opportunity to join an exciting, dynamic team who are constantly developing new ways of working to support people with mental health problems better.

In return for your enthusiasm, you will get a lot of support, encouragement and personal development in our happy, thriving team.
