Are you a qualified RMN (or RGN) with NMC registration and a good understanding of care plans and named nursing systems? Would you like to be part of an organisation that counts on the professionalism, insight, expertise and passion of its staff to inspire individual recovery for the people they work with? Then join us as a Registered Mental Health Nurse.
Recovery Focus are expert partners with the shared aim to inspire individual recovery nationwide. Between us we have a track record of more than 200 years of developing and running personalised services that work with people with mental health, substance misuse and other complex needs to achieve their ambitions. Each partner organisation has its own rich history of success, but together we believe we can lead the way in evidence-based recovery pathways that we can tailor to meet local and individual needs.
Right now, one of our partners, Richmond Fellowship, is looking for a Registered Mental Health Nurse to join the team at Moor View Care Home in Halifax, a registered care home with 24 hour nursing. Your challenge? To help provide excellent nursing care and support to clients and make sure the services we provide are of a high quality. We’ll also rely on you to strive to meet each individual’s needs and aspirations and encourage a participative environment that enables residents to gain increasing independence and develop their full potential. Taking special responsibility for allocated clients/residents by helping them formulate and pursue a positive personal development programme will be important too, as will supervising volunteers and less experienced staff.
Ideally with some nursing experience in residential work or a related field, you’re used to carrying out practical duties and supervising others and committed to meeting client needs. The ability to prioritise and plan work and deal effectively with personal stress is also essential, as is a desire to develop. What’s more, you have excellent communication and team working skills and are comfortable being part of a flexible rota system that includes weekends, evenings, waking nights etc.
Richmond Fellowship is a national mental health charity Making Recovery Reality for thousands of people every year.
For the past 60 years we've been pioneering approaches to recovery and championing social inclusion for nearly and are one of the largest voluntary sector providers of mental health support in England.
