We are looking for a dynamic and inspiring leader; someone who is enthusiastic, innovative and wants to join the management team on Nelson Ward.

Nelson Ward is an 18-bed Female Ward based at Lambeth Hospital. We support and care for some of the most vulnerable service users from our community. We work within a specialist multi-disciplinary team, delivering high quality care to patients experiencing acute mental illness.

The successful candidate will lead the dedicated multi-professional team in providing care for female service users. The candidate will need to be passionate about high quality patient care and have excellent people management skills. The post holder will be a ‘self-starter’ and be able to work autonomously as well as part of a multi professional team.

We believe that frontline clinical leadership is essential to improving patient experience and outcomes, and offer opportunities for development, training and support. We are a forward thinking service and welcome new ideas and improved ways of working to enhance the service user experience.

We employ around 4,800 people across South London and other sites in the UK. It is a diverse team of talented individuals, spanning a wide range of specialities and benefiting from many world-leading healthcare experts. We deliver more than 14,000 training experiences each year for our staff, providing an extensive range of learning opportunities. Staff can benefit from exceptional professional development opportunities and we will work with you to build your career in mental health. In addition, our working relationship with King's Health Partners allows those working at the Trust to get involved in academic research.

We are committed to helping to develop the people that come to work with us. We know that the Trust can only be as good as the people who work here and we’ll invest in you to maximise that potential. That’s why we really welcome and value people so highly. In short, if you’ve got what it takes we’d be delighted for you to come and work with us.
