As a Bank 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 experience and to build up links with referrers and community based services.

We are looking for those with relevant experience although 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. If this applies to you please demonstrate these skills in your background statement. As you will be working with children a DBS with a successful check on the children's list will be required.
