Venue: Trust Headquarters, Stapleford House, Stapleford Close, Chelmsford, CM2 0QX If you are a student nurse looking for your first job, make sure it's with us. Visit our Working at NEP page for more information and a direct link to our Student Nurse vacancies. We provide an outstanding preceptorship programme with support from a mentor and supervisor. There are also many other opportunities for further training and development that you can discuss on the day with our Practice Education and Development Facilitators. If successful at interview, we can offer you a permanent job with us on the day. You could start straight away, working hours to suit your studies, as an HCA with our internal temporary staffing ‘bank’ NETSS. We're proud of our reputation for training and developing our staff and can help you realise your educational and career aspirations.
We’re looking for previously qualified mental health nurses who want to return to professional practice. If you’re looking to come back to nursing, we’re partnering with Anglia Ruskin University and Essex University in providing a three month part time course which includes placement as a student nurse. Upon completion of a successful assessment you’ll be a registered nurse again. We’re holding training sessions every quarter with the next one starting beginning of May. You’ll receive £500 to help cover training and living costs. If you’re interested, please email Nazir Shivji on or call him on 07770 815438. We hope to have you on our team.
NEP is a truly an exceptional place to work. Whatever your role within the Trust, you will contribute to ensuring that our service users and carers receive high quality, safe and effective services. We are a values driven organisation with a strong reputation for innovation and excellence evidenced by our investment in the education and training of staff, and was recently accredited as a Practice Development Unit through Bournemouth University. We have recently redesigned our community services into a more effective and adaptable system for which we have won national validation from Bournemouth University.
If you are an adult, the One You is a campaign that will inform, energise and engage you to make changes to improve your health across seven key behaviours. Take the online quiz for a quick self assessment to see where you are and then find out what changes you can make. The seven key behaviours are: moving more, quitting smoking, drinking less, eating well, checking yourself, reducing stress and sleeping better. Your health is important!
