It’s an exciting time to join us: KMPT has been rated Outstanding for Caring and Good overall in our most recent CQC inspection in January 2017!

Would you like to be part of a forward thinking service that is embracing the therapeutic day? Are you someone who has a passion for working with older adults with acute mental illness?

Are you an experienced RMN looking for their first leadership role or in a leadership role and want a new challenge?

There is an exciting permanent opportunity for a highly motivated and enthusiastic RMN or RGN looking for a leadership role in Older People’s inpatient care on the Orchards Ward at Priority House. Orchard’s ward is a 16 bedded acute assessment ward located at Priority House, Barming, which is just behind Maidstone District General Hospital.

You must have post registration experience including working with older adults and have completed mentorship training to be able to mentor students.
You must also be able to support the needs of people, who are diagnosed with dementia, their relatives and carers. This requires excellent communication and liaison skills.

You will also have excellent interpersonal skills to manage and supervise staff effectively. You will be working with a wide range of experienced and friendly professionals, all with an interest in dementia care and providing high quality of care and compassion. In return we offer regular clinical supervision and management supervision.

We believe in clinically led, management supported services and want to strengthen nurse leadership to provide safe, compassionate, creative services which really make a difference to patient lives.
You will therefore be an excellent clinician, committed to the concept of person centred care and that of personal care.

You will have the ability to influence, enthuse and enable, a role model who leads from the front and by example you will use your clinical expertise to improve practice, to challenge tradition and to work with the team to create a culture of therapeutic optimism and hope.

Resilient, tenacious and ready for a challenge you will support and develop staff to provide the kind of service you would want to recommend to family and friends. We will offer development programme opportunities, supervision, reflective practice, mentoring and coaching and will ensure you are fully supported in your new role. Some working knowledge of the Dementia Toolkit would be highly desirable.

Our promise to you as a new recruit is that we will provide you with the following:
• New Hire Bonus of £1200 pro rota for band 5 & 6 ‘Front Line’ nursing staff
• NHS Pension scheme
• Career development with our comprehensive range of training & development opportunities to enhance your skills

• Experience of working with a specialist patient group
• Preceptorship programme providing structured support to newly registered professionals entering at band 5
• Fully funded Return to Practice course
• Car Lease Scheme open to all staff
