Staff Nurse, Band 5

Bournemouth, Dorset

£23,023 to £29,608 p.a.

Full time 37.5 hours per week

Are you a caring and compassionate registered mental health nurse looking for a fresh start?

Pebble Lodge is a 10 bed adolescent mental health unit located in the beautiful town of Bournemouth, Dorset. We have recently been accredited as a national centre of excellence for CAMHS inpatient care and are committed to offering innovative and high quality care to young people age 12-18 who are suffering from acute mental illness.

If you are interested in moving to Dorset we also offer a generous relocation package of up to £5,000. For further details on relocation expenses please email dhc.careers@nhs.net.

Pebble Lodge was the first CAMHS Unit to implement a number of new initiatives including Parents Evenings, CLIP (Collaborative Learning in Practice) and a new Peer Specialist Service, this is something we are extremely proud and have National recognition for within the QNIC forum.

We have a number of exciting staff nurse vacancies due to existing staff promotion and progression, to work a full time shift rotation. We would welcome applications from both newly qualified and experienced Nurses with an interest in child and adolescent mental health services, who would be interested working in a unit that is rated as Outstanding by CQC.

We offer dedicated professional development – preceptorship and mentoring support, access to training in specialist CAMHS interventions and risk assessment.

You will be required to undertake a Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression course and it is a condition of your employment that you successfully complete all aspects of this course; if this is not achieved you will not be able to commence working in the post.

Employment in this post requires an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. The DBS levies a charge of £44 and the Trust will recover this cost in instalments from your first 3 salary payments. This will only apply to candidates who are new to the Trust and not internal staff. Applicants who subscribe to the DBS update service and are able to present a valid DBS certificate will not incur a charge.

We currently have three full time vacancies, one permanent post and two fixed term posts for a period of 12 months.
