What we’re looking for

We look for qualified healthcare professionals including mental health nurses, registered general nurses or registered nurses for people with learning disabilities. If you’re not yet at this level, you could join us in a more junior role such as a support worker or healthcare assistant.

While relevant qualifications are essential for more senior roles, what’s really important is a sincere, caring approach. We want people who believe that every resident and patient deserves the best, and who respect the dignity of others.

We’ll expect you to listen, be kind and do everything in your power to give the highest standard of care. And of course, it helps if you’re warm and friendly, with a good sense of humour too. If you can also bring honesty, dedication and an organised approach, you could be the perfect fit for Priory.
