Job Description


Partnerships in Care are one of the UK’s leading providers of independent specialist secure and step-down care across the UK.

With hospitals around the country, 30 years of experience and highly experienced teams, we help patients and commissioners find the right care pathways, without the need for multiple reassessments.

There’s no doubt that working in mental health can be hugely rewarding. Here at The Dene it’s particularly fulfilling experience, thanks to the range of wards (which now include acute wards, as well as already well-established low and medium secure female services).

There’s also the fact that our service users include both men and women. It means you get to hone your skills (and learn new ones), while enjoying real variety in your day-to-day working life. Above all, you’ll get to see the impact that a high standard of long and short-term care can have on many, many lives.

Our Charge Nurse role involves:

  • Being a clear leader for the Nursing team and managing shifts
  • Providing high quality care in acute wards, low and medium secure wards, with patients suffering from personality disorders and enduring mental illness; and acute episodes of illness
  • Developing therapeutic relationships to optimise patient engagement
  • Following all codes of conduct, standards and legislation, respecting the rights of others and promoting ethical practice
  • Contributing to patient assessments, compiling a plan of care alongside the individual, and monitoring patient progress
  • Mentoring and supporting student nurses and other members of the team
  • Promoting professional development within the team

To be successful as a Charge Nurse, you’ll need:

  • An RMN or RNLD qualification
  • Experience in a supervisory role
  • A recognised mentoring certificate
  • The ability to assess and teach junior staff
  • A proven ability to co-ordinate care, prioritise tasks and manage Health & Safety issues
  • The drive to learn and develop
  • A commitment to patient-centred care and to values-based and evidence-based practice
  • A flexible, positive, team-orientated approach
