VACANCY OF THE WEEK: Inpatient Nurses, Band 5 (suitable for newly qualified)


We are looking for enthusiastic and committed individuals to join our inpatient services. Our Trust has invested in purpose built and refurbished units designed specifically to provide quality and safe care and we currently have vacancies within our Adult Acute services in Harlow and Chelmsford as well as our specialist low secure and psychiatric intensive care units in Chelmsford. Our older adult, both specialist dementia and functional units are also recruiting in Clacton, Chelmsford, and Epping Forest.

You will be expected to work as part of a service which offers high quality interventions to meet the needs of service users and also support to their families. You would need to have excellent assessment and care planning skills and be dedicated to working in a recovery and person focused way. You will be expected to work collaboratively with key partner organisations, service users, carers and other practitioners within the multi-disciplinary team.
