Job Description

Are you an experienced Nurse looking for a new opportunity to work in an organisation that will help to develop you to achieve your goals to become the best you can be? Then join the team at Ann House and enjoy a £5,000 welcome bonus!

With previous experience from the NHS or private care as a Mental Health Nurse or Learning Disability Nurse, you will lead and coordinate the quality and management of nursing care, service user care and the clinical environment.

As a Senior Nurse, you will be responsible for the clinical environment as you provide leadership to your peers and manage the clinical services throughout the wards and units.

Your career within Elysium will be enjoyable and rewarding as you develop specialist skills and make a real difference for some of the most vulnerable people in society. It's a career that you can take pride in and enjoy.

The safety of our service users and colleagues is our priority and as such we encourage and support vaccination uptake as this remains the best line of defence against COVID-19.

What you will be doing

As a Senior Nurse, you will ensure adults with mental health conditions receive high-quality care, while also supporting your colleagues and promote good teamwork.

No two days are the same, with plenty to keep you engaged and motivated, but also a good amount of routine.

You will have access to the Elysium Wellbeing team, which is on hand to keep you feeling great; be it a chat, massage or group activities. Who doesn't like a free massage at work?

There are also career development opportunities, with a huge range of courses that will help you grow and succeed. If you have the aspiration, capability and dedication, we can give you the support and opportunities to help you achieve your career goals.

You will work 12 hours days, three days a week, with the occasional night shift. Though with 4 days off to rest and catch up on life, it provides a great work/life balance.
