Staff Nurse Cedar House Band 5


An exciting opportunity has arisen for dynamic staff nurses to join our progressive mental health rehabilitation and recovery team at Cedar House.

Creativity and flexibility in your approach are essential as is the commitment to teamwork. The post will require you to be compassionate, self-aware, supportive, enabling and encouraging so that each person is able to achieve their goals and aspirations.

The post holders will be able to form and develop therapeutic, meaningful relationships with service users, ensure they are actively involved in both the planning and delivery of their care as part of their recovery journey. They will be responsible for leading shifts, managing crisis and complex situations, supervising band 3 nurses and will be actively encouraged to participate in the ongoing development and redesign of the rehabilitation and recovery service.

This post requires excellent communication and de-escalation skills and the ability to adapt to any given situation to ensure the individual is supported and empowered throughout their care pathway.

We believe nurses need time to be caring, and time to think and reflect supported by robust supervision, reflective practice and coaching/mentoring.

If you care and are motivated to work with people using the principles of recovery and wish to be part of a committed forward thinking team then this is the opportunity for you.
