Job Advert Role Description

Summary

At Priory, we aspire to deliver the highest quality of care and support. As a Bank Mental Health Nurse, you’ll have the opportunity to support our teams across a range of mental health services, on your own schedule. We welcome anyone looking for a more flexible work pattern, additional shifts, or a chance to support people with a variety of needs.

Being a Bank Mental Health Nurse at Priory will provide you with excellent clinical and educational opportunities as you’ll likely work on different wards and teams, allowing you to gain exposure and acquire expertise in many mental health specialities.

Burgess Hill

Here at Burgess Hill our aim is to help patients to live a happier, more independent life.

Burgess Hill is a purpose-built hospital set in attractive spacious grounds, in a rural setting within easy reach of the A23 and local amenities.

At Burgess Hill we offer a specialist service in providing care for people with mental illnesses, split across three wards: a male acute service and a male high dependency unit, a female low secure unit, and a specialist personality disorder unit.

New members of our team have an exceptional opportunity to help shape the future of our services and a genuine chance to be part of transforming them. With a renewed focus on quality and excellence at its heart the service aims to grow and extend its current offering. This is your chance to play an influential part in developing and improving the current services and to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of the people in our care.

Who we are

The Priory Group is the largest private behavioural health provider in the UK, with around 350 facilities in our Healthcare and Adult Care divisions. We strive for excellence, and although the vast majority of our sites are already rated Good or Outstanding by the CQC, we always aspire to do better. Putting our people first is central to our values. This includes the people we support and their families as well as our dedicated staff who make a difference every day.

Working at Priory

We do our best to match you with the services and shifts that work best with your skills and lifestyle. But no matter where you work, our Bank Mental Health Nurses are always part of the team. You’ll be in all daily meetings and involved in all relevant decision-making. Your ideas and expertise will be heard as we all work together to provide the best for our patients.

As well as giving you the flexibility to work around your life, we want to make sure you feel at home at Priory. You’ll be partnered with your own dedicated line manager who will check in regularly to ensure you have the training and support you need. Depending on the site you’re working at, you’ll receive either free or heavily subsided meals and almost all of our sites offer free parking. You will also be entitled to annual leave. Many of our Bank Mental Health Nurses have progressed or transitioned into permanent positions with us, so this could be an option if your situation changes in the future.

What you’ll need

We ask that you’re a fully registered nurse with active NMC PIN and that you have some experience working in a similar clinical environment. Aside from that, all of our people must show integrity and compassion in their work and share our goal of delivering excellent care for our people.

Bank staff will be paid weekly at the Bank rate of £19.89. However, at the end of every month, if you meet our expectations, you will receive a bonus that will bring your total pay for that month up to the higher shown rates below.

  • £28 per hour Week Days
  • £28 per hour Week Nights / Saturdays
