job description

Do you enjoy the challenge of working with some of the most difficult to engage service users? Does being there for somebody who may not have anybody fill you with huge job satisfaction? Have you found yourself wanting to make a change? Well this could be the opportunity for you!

Some people have reservations about agency work and the security it can provide. Not knowing whether you will still be in the same job in 12 months time. But being a Mental Health Nurse with community experience, you are one member of a group of highly skilled and specialised nurses who make a real difference. This is an opportunity for somebody to join a team for a minimum of 6 months with the strong possibility of it being extended to beyond 12 months. Joining the Manchester Engagement team working with the Homeless Pathway, you will be a crucial member of staff providing care to some of the most vulnerable members of our society.

Alongside a competitive hourly salary, you will also receive:

- Support from the UK's largest Health & Social Care specialist recruitment provider. With more than 60 years experience helping nursing professionals find their ideal roles, Randstad Care is ideally positioned to help people like you find your ideal job.

- Dedicated primary consultant with a secondary point of contact so there is always someone here to take your call.

- Weekly pay runs using an online pay system

- Access to free training courses

- Referral scheme up to £200 per successful referral

- Online fast-track DBS applications

Your role as a Community Psychiatric Nurse will involve:

- Working with homeless people who have dropped out of Trust services.

- Some of the service users may have had an undiagnosed Serious Mental Illness (SMI) compounded by past trauma issues, poor coping mechanisms and personality disorder. Clients are often difficult to reach and mistrustful of anyone representing authority.

- The team work with service users who have severe and enduring mental health issues, visiting day Centre's and out-patient clinics in an effort to improve the service user's quality of life.

- Building relationships with patients to encourage trust, while listening to and interpreting their needs and concerns.

To be considered for this role, you must:

- Have six months, post qualifying experience working within a similar role.

- Be professionally registered with the NMC

This is an opportunity not to be missed out on. After you apply, I will then conduct a telephone interview with yourself, invite you in for a face-to-face interview and if I think you're right for the role, I will then be able to put you forward.

You can contact me directly on 0161 245 3633. I look forward to hearing from you!
