Working together to change lives

We provide a wide range of needs-led responses such as community treatment packages, PLAN-accredited Liaison services, intensive home treatment and specialist interventions. Alongside this, we have an AIMS-accredited 17-bed inpatient unit.

To ensure we offer the best and most up-to-date mental health care, we actively encourage continuing professional development. This includes induction for new arrivals to Jersey, free access to online journals and ebooks, and ongoing study up to Masters Level for nurses and allied health professionals in partnership with the University of Chester.  We work with a varied clinical population, allowing our people to share knowledge and skills, whilst continually progressing in specialist areas.

We are looking for skilled professionals who are able to consistently provide compassionate, collaborative and evidence-informed care to join our team and change the lives of adults in our community. This is your chance to use your skills and abilities to provide the best standard of care, and rediscover the things that make you so good at what you do.

Clinical Nurse Specialist (Community & Social Services – Mental Health)

Grade 5 (equivalent to a Band 5/6 under UK AfC)

£44,925 - £47,844 per year + relocation allowance 

 

In Jersey, we’ll give you the chance to remember why you first became a Nurse. Away from the jurisdiction of the NHS, we’re free to govern our healthcare service as we see fit. As such, we encourage our teams to work collaboratively and to spend time getting to know their patients, gaining a full understanding of the challenges they face and the help they need. Likewise, we support our people with plenty of training opportunities, so you can be sure that your knowledge will remain cutting-edge. Which all equates to a particularly progressive working environment – one in which our integrated services link seamlessly – and one in which you’re sure to rediscover your love for the profession.

Joining the Adult Mental Health team, you will work with some of Jersey’s most vulnerable residents who need technical interventions and specialist support. These are people who have complex mental health needs, but thanks to your skilled assessments and treatments, they will maintain a good quality of life. Acting as a care co-ordinator within the community, you will take their opinions into account wherever possible, assessing risks (both to themselves and to the public) and devising a management and safety plan that will also include being on-call, out of hours. Working with multi-disciplinary colleagues, you will also offer psychosocial education to families and carers of your patients, using your enhanced skills within a specialist nursing area to provide a level of support that is outstanding.

It’s important that you can deliver care to your patients and explain what is happening in a way that they can understand. As such, you will be an experienced registered nurse with fantastic communication skills, and a good knowledge of mental health gained over at least three years in a speciality area. With a mentorship or teaching qualification and a relevant post qualifying speciality award, you’ll be excited about the development opportunities we can present you with. You’ll also need good IT skills and a driving license – plus a huge amount of compassion.

Our people are so important so with support from day one, you’ll have everything you need to make the move and start changing the lives of others, and your own. We’ll provide you with a generous relocation package (£8,000), support with a deposit and first month’s rent through our Deposit Advance Scheme, as well as continual training and development opportunities and the freedom to really rediscover why you love what you do, and who you are.

This is a role in which you can make a tangible difference to the lives of others, in a team where creativity, kindness and team-work are paramount. So if you’re ready to rediscover your love for nursing, then get in touch.

£51,347 - £54,570 per year

At the States of Jersey Health and Social Services Department, we strive to put the patient at the heart of every decision. We want to help every member of our community get the most out of life – and we want our medical professionals to remain passionate about their careers – so we endeavour to make both ambitions possible through collaborative working and a seamless connection between healthcare and social services. The resulting friendly and supportive atmosphere that exists within our team is one which we’re particularly proud of, particularly as we work with some of Jersey’s most vulnerable individuals.

Involving these people in decisions about their care (wherever possible) you will take the senior lead in assessing the risks they pose to themselves and to others, and devise care plans that will support their health requirements.

To make the most of this exciting opportunity, you will be a registered Nurse with at least four years of experience and advanced skills in a specialist area such as eating disorders, criminal justice practice, cognitive behavioural therapy or psychological interventions in psychosis, or you will be a registered AMHPS Practitioner. With the communication skills needed to provide high-quality psychosocial education, you will also have plenty of compassion when explaining and delivering any treatments. A natural leader, you will have the confidence to lead and develop junior colleagues, cemented by a mentorship or teaching award or qualification. You will also have a full driving license plus a relevant post qualifying speciality award.

Our people are so important so with support from day one, you’ll have everything you need to make the move and start changing the lives of others, and your own.
