Staff Nurse RMN (CAMHS)

Band 5

Wessex House are looking for qualified Mental Health Nurses (RMN) to join us in supporting young people in our CAMHS Inpatient Ward.

We know that working on a Child & Adolescent Mental Health Inpatient ward can be challenging, but with the right team, we are rising to the challenge and making a difference to young people.

Wessex House is an innovative and interesting place to work, offering care for up to 12 young people between the age of 13 and 18 who require support for complex mental health needs. 

We can offer you a positive and supportive environment to work with excellent support from your manager and colleagues. You will play a valuable role in the recovery of the young people, working closely with them and their families and contributing to the assessment, planning and implementation of treatment plans.

We have a recovery focussed approach on the ward and our main therapy model is Dialectical Behavioural Therapy; you will have the opportunity to become involved in this programme with the potential of further specialist training. You will also take part in a variety of therapeutic activities with young people, related to their care plans.

This is a great opportunity to become part of a well-established team and work hand in hand with other professionals to deliver high-quality care.

After a period of orientation, you’ll also lead shifts and supervise junior staff in carrying out care plans.

Wessex house can offer you a rewarding career where you will be valued as a key member of our team. We can offer you bespoke training for CAMHS, as well as CPD and supervision.

You will benefit from the usual NHS benefits such as 5.4 weeks annual leave PLUS Bank Holidays, enhanced pay for unsociable hours to complement your income, and flexible working practices to promote a good work-life balance.

Above all, you'll be able to make a difference to the lives of young people every day, supporting and encouraging them to achieve their goals and ambitions, whilst we support you to achieve yours.

We are also able to consider Registered General and Learning Disability Nurses depending on your experience.
