Bank Staff Nurse - RMN/RNLD trained
Everyone’s Turning Point is unique. It’s the moment when they realise they’ve made a small, but important, step forward. Very often, that small step is the start of something bigger. But only when the right support, advice and services are in place. That’s where you come in.
Join The Corner House in Rotherham and you won't simply make a profound difference to the lives of 12 men with learning difficulties, mental health issues and a range of complex needs; you will also shape an innovative, person–centred therapeutic high support model that really could change the way the individuals we support are treated in the future.
It’s an exciting time to be joining The Corner House with a new staffing structure, new ideas and new approaches The professional challenges for our nursing roles at The Corner House are significant and varied. You will be involved with case management and user involvement, be part of a therapeutic team, create personal recovery plans and maintain our strong values–driven approach to supporting vulnerable people. But that’s just the beginning, as here at Turning Point we offer a unique setting for our nursing staff, one of true development and with an excellent career path. Our nursing roles offer genuine decision making responsibility and you’ll have a real impact on the day–to–day running of the service. After all, it’s often that our best nurses can develop into our managers.
All our nursing positions require you to be qualified (RMN or RNLD), with sound knowledge of the Mental Health Act 1983, Care Programme approach and current legislation. You should have a good understanding of the Recovery Framework and issues relating specifically to learning disabilities and mental health – including current regulatory requirements.
In charge of a shift and managing a team of Support Workers and Project Workers, you will be engaged fully in providing person centred therapeutic activities on a day–to–day basis whilst working alongside and leading a team of professionals to deliver realistic outcomes for individuals. An effective team player, you will be a role model for staff and residents alike and will be committed to providing an uninterrupted programme of care. You’ll be a good communicator, have strong leadership skills, experienced in change management processes and be able to demonstrate current knowledge of the issues our service and service users face.
Evidence of Continuing Professional Development is desirable along with mentorship training and delivery.
If you have a commitment to the development and continuous improvement of a truly innovative service, and you have experience working with individuals with complex needs, we’d like to hear from you.
