Amber Valley Neighbourhood Mental Health Team is looking for an enthusiastic Band 6 Community Psychiatric Nurse to join their busy and friendly team based at Ripley Resource Centre.
The work will involve assessing and supporting mostly older adults with mental ill health who live predominantly in the Amber Valley area. Due to the geographic area covered by the team there will be occasions where working in other localities will be required. As such you will need to have the ability to travel across a large geographical area.
You will need to have recent relevant experience of dealing with older people with organic and functional mental ill health, preferably in a community setting. There is an expectation that you will be able to manage a diverse and complex caseload, working in cooperation and developing links with other statutory and independent sector agencies. An excellent knowledge and awareness of CPA will be required.
We are keen to develop services provided by the team in line with the National Dementia Strategy and Dementia Challenge, so a willingness to engage in supporting colleagues in the team and other agencies will be very important. Similarly, a desire to develop personal skills and knowledge will be a requirement of the post.
This is a very supportive team and you will be encouraged to continue your professional development with the help of regular supervision and access to training opportunities. Amber Valley Neighbourhood Mental Health Team is an Ageless service, providing mental health care and support for over 18 year olds.
