Community Learning Disability Nurses Band 5 (2 full time posts).

1 post - East Leicestershire team based at Bassett Street South Wigson.

1 post - City team based at Winstanley Drive, Leicester.

We have 2 exciting full time band 5 opportunities for enthusiastic, committed and forward thinking individuals to join the Community Learning Disability Nursing Team. One post will be based within the City team at Winstanley Drive, Leicester and one post within the East Leicestershire team based in South Wigston, Leicestershire.

We are looking for newly qualified or more experienced learning disability nurses who can manage their own caseload, complete assessments within the areas of clinical practice such as mental health, profound and multiple disabilities, dementia and positive behaviour support and be able to develop robust person centred care plans.

You will be supported to supervise, mentor and teach unregistered staff and students. This post will give you the opportunity to contribute towards leadership within the nursing team and wider multi-disciplinary team.

You will need to demonstrate effective leadership and inter-personal skills, good communication and presentation skills, be organised and self-motivated. We will provide regular clinical supervision and you will be supported to continue your professional development.
