Are you a registered Clinical Nurse Specialist with working experience of Band 6 or above? Do you like the idea of working for a leading specialist service providing NHS funded intensive mental health packages and residential placements for complex young people and young adults?

Our client provides residential services for young people aged 16-30 years old who have been discharged from psychiatric inpatient stays or may have experienced previous admissions and/or placement breakdowns.

They have a fantastic opportunity for a Clinical Nurse Specialist to join a professional team where you will be responsible for assessing, developing, outlining and implementing specialist interventions to young people, both within residential provision and independence packages of care within the community. The young people within the service, will have often transitioned from long term hospital admissions or secure care provisions, as well as having been placed as an alternative to a hospital.

You will be based in the Cheshire Hub which is located in Warrington, with the majority of your role covering their two services in Wirral. There will be occasions where you may need to work across West Yorkshire and Lancashire to conduct assessments or duty reviews. Your role will involve working Monday to Friday over a 37.5 hour week.
