Band 3 Nursing Assistant



Simmons House is a 12 bedded unit specialising in the treatment of those aged 13-18 presenting with a range of mental health problems.

As a Nursing Assistant you will have the opportunity to develop skills working therapeutically in Individual, Group and Family contexts, as well as becoming involved in a wide range of educational and recreational activities. You will have the opportunity to expand your day to day management experience and to build up links with referrers and community based services.

We offer a developed and highly structured system of supervision and training, and are committed to supporting suitable post-basic study.

Whilst previous relevant experience would be an advantage, we are equally impressed with those who can demonstrate imagination and enthusiasm, and who feel they can make a contribution to the work with this stimulating and rewarding client group. This post involves working with children so the successful candidate will need to apply for disclosure.

Due to high levels of interest in this post, it is likely to close earlier than advertised to limit numbers for shortlisting.
