Band 5 Staff Nurse

Job Reference: 313-A-21-93804-MA

Leicestershire Partnership Trust
£24,907 - £30,615

Can you demonstrate our values of Trust, Respect, Integrity and Compassion? Do you share in our ambition to create high quality, compassionate care and wellbeing for all?

Then take a step towards LPT...

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) provides a range of community health, mental health and learning disability services for people of all ages. Delivered through over 100 settings from inpatient wards to out in the community, our 6,500 staff serves over 1m people living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Be part of something amazing

In Autumn 2020, our Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)’ inpatient provision was expanded and updated by opening a brand new, purpose-built 15-bed facility, ‘The Beacon’, on the Glenfield Hospital site on the outskirts of Leicester City. The Beacon is located alongside other mental health inpatient facilities run by Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT), and offers inpatient mental health care to young people aged 13 – 18 suffering from acute mental health difficulties, including eating disorders.

We are currently looking for registered nurses (Band 5) from all backgrounds to support us in providing high quality compassionate care and wellbeing for all.

We are looking for motivated, proactive, enthusiastic and caring professionals to be part of our well established multi-disciplinary team, which comprises a consultant psychiatrist, as well as psychology, psychotherapy, family therapy and nursing staff. Whilst on the ward you will be responsible for assessing, planning and implementing evidence based care to service users who are acutely unwell. You will also take part in running shifts and coordinating and delegating nursing duties to the nursing team. The inpatient service is continually developing and exploring ways to increase nursing expertise to offer a wider range of therapies. Whilst working on the ward, you will be expected to work shifts covering 7 days a week, including early, late and night shifts.

To meet the needs of the new unit, we will offer training to ensure staff are skilled to the highest standards. We are also able to offer a rolling monthly training programme for all staff. At LPT, we believe that everyone is a leader, and will offer opportunities for you to nurture and further develop your leadership skills and abilities.

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

If you would like to find out more, please contact Paul Howley, Matron on 0116 295 0950.


After 6 months £500

Followed by further £500 after 18 months service

Upon completion of 3 years on the Unit a final payment of £1,000 will be paid

In addition to the above we will refund your NMC Registration on a monthly pro rata basis

We are committed to providing the best care that we can to our patients, and so some of our roles involve a Maths and English assessment. Where this is so, details will be shared with you as part of the recruitment process.

Details of our benefits, pledge and other important information about the application process, and working for us is contained in the documents linked to our advert.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, rosters are set in advance at a team level and you will be joining an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date. We will consider requests to vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.

To make the most of your application, we may consider successful applicants for vacancies for the same post in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of every new member of staff (excluding medical and dental staff) to a post is subject to a 6 month probationary period, details of which are in our Probation Policy.

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our service users. To this end we actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups, including members of our black and minority ethnic communities. All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.

For all jobs the cost of undertaking a DBS disclosure at the required level will be met by the individual. This will be deducted from salary following commencement.

Requests from applicants to work alternative hours to those advertised may be considered.

Applicants who are currently ‘at risk’ within the local NHS, and meeting essential criteria will be given preference for interview over any other candidates who may apply for this post.
