Are you someone who feels passionately about delivering an effective mental health service? Are you a state registered mental health nurse or a newly qualified mental health nurse looking to further develop your mental health nursing skills and are interested in delivering holistic innovative and qualitative practice? The Waveney Recovery Team in Lowestoft is keen to meet you!
We are a supportive multidisciplinary community mental health team who together work hard to support those with secondary mental health needs in Lowestoft and surrounding market towns in Waveney. The team consists of Nurses, OTs Social Workers, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Assistant Practitioners, Peer Workers, Support Workers and admin staff.
We are looking for a new colleague to work with the team in the delivery of our clinics within Victoria House. This could also include community visits. We provide a service to the whole of Waveney following the Recovery model using the Care Plan Approach.
You will either have achieved their nursing registration or be about to be registered. We are looking for someone who understands medication administration, and be willing as part of their development to acquire appropriate skills around depot administration, and have the organisational skills to co-run a successful clinic supported by experienced colleagues. We can offer further training in phlebotomy, Recovery Model and will support people through any preceptorship needs. You will receive regular supervision and have plenty of opportunities to co work with members of the multi disciplinary team. We also believe in working in partnership with our service users and carers to ensure a co-produced service.
We welcome people who would like a chance to look round and meet the Team Manager. So please do give us a call on the number below.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIESApart from its legal duties in relation to equality and diversity, the Trust recognises and actively promotes the benefits of a diverse workforce and is committed to treating all employees with dignity and respect regardless of race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief. Additionally, people with disabilities that fall under the Two Ticks - Guaranteed Interview Scheme will be offered an interview providing they meet the minimum criteria for the post (outlined in the Person Specification). DISCLOSURE AND BARRING SERVICE CHECK (formerly CRB) FOR POSTS WITH DIRECT SERVICE USER CONTACT - Please be advised that due to recent changes in the DBS Service, organisations no longer receive copies of DBS Disclosures – these are sent directly to candidates only. Therefore, it will be your responsibility, if successful, to ensure that this is taken to the appointing officer as soon as you receive it. Alternatively, if you have subscribed to the update service, we will be able to check your status once we have your authority to do so.
The Trust has now introduced a DBS Update Service which is a contractual requirement. You need to subscribe when you have applied for your DBS clearance and there is a time limit to subscribe of 19 days after receipt of your DBS disclosure. Please ensure that this is completed within the set time scale.
This update service is an annual subscription at a cost of £13 to you. This will enable the Trust to have instant online access to your DBS record, with your consent, and so will remove the need for you to have to apply for this repeat check again.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
