We are looking to recruit passionate Mental Health Nurses to our Acorn Lodge, Bethlem Adolescent Unit, PICU Ward based at our Bethlem Royal Hospital and Snowsfield Adolescent inpatient based at our Maudsely Hospital to support adolescents and children across our services in the South London.

SLaM has the largest and most specialised CAMHS services in the country and are on the forefront of personalised support for young people and children. We want to hire nurses who have a real understanding for the needs of the CAMHS group who can bring innovation and change to our services. We see these services as a genuine specialism and are offering the opportunity to be part of it.

As part of our strong teams, you'll have the scope to share ideas and follow them through into innovative practice. Recent inspiring projects here include evening family support groups, gardening projects, community access and bespoke recovery and support plans. Factor in the therapeutic time youll be able to spend engaging with young people and their families, and you have the makings of a level of personal and professional development that is very special indeed.

Service users and their families will engage with you on a daily basis and are looking to be treated with respect and dignity. We want our nurses to be fully integrated in the mental health and wellbeing of everyone they work with and feel comfortable communicating with different stakeholders.

We give you the opportunity to become a specialist in CAMHS and be involved in cutting edge care and support. We offer excellent learning and development opportunities as well as the chance to be involved in research from Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN). We want to support you in your career and give you options to progress. Our preceptorship and mentoring schemes mean you will be partnered with like-minded individuals who will be dedicated to your development.

You must be a qualified RMN or LD Nurse or in the final year of your RMN/LD course, students qualifying in 3 months. Its important that you have an understanding of multidisciplinary services and the challenges that face people with mental health problems. We want to hire staff that are passionate about mental health, who believe in our recovery model and who will act as advocates for the reduction of stigma in our community. You must have an excellent understanding of safeguarding and how to work within professional boundaries. Roles at SLaM are challenging, stimulating and diverse. We believe that we can offer you something different from other Trusts if you are interested in a role please apply.

Please state in your application in your supporting statement whether you would want to work in Croydon or Southwark. Please note that each location attracts a different London weighting payment.
