Band 6 CPN - North Somerset DEST - Dementia Enhanced Support Team.
Are you interested in working with people who have a diagnosis of dementia, and their carers? Are you a qualified psychiatric nurse? Do you like working in a short term intensive way, supporting people at a time of crisis?
The North Somerset DEST team is a small team of Band 6 CPNs. It is based in Windmill House in Kenn, near Clevedon.
We have a vacancy for a part time B6 CPN to join the team.
This job is for three and a half days, which is 26.25 hours per week. We need someone who can work 9-5 Weds-Fri, plus alternate Tuesdays. There will be Saturday working once a month or less and working on up to two Bank Holidays over the year. On Saturdays and Bank Holidays DEST operate a reduced service, staffed by one person.
Previous experience of working with people with dementia, or as a CPN in the community, or with people in crisis would be helpful but is not essential.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
