As one of the largest providers of female secure services in England and members of the Women's Secure Network Group, we are at the forefront of developing the next five year strategy for women's forensic services in England. This is a really exciting time to join us and a fantastic opportunity to help us develop services that better meet the needs of our patients and stakeholders.
The Orchard is a modern purpose-built facility with six wards, designed specifically for female patients. Our Women's Enhanced Medium Secure Services (WEMSS) model of care is based on enhanced relational security using the See Think Act approach. Patients and staff collaborate to identify the patient's needs, risks, skills and strengths, with patients taking increasing responsibility for managing their own safety. We are committed to involving patients, carers, locality teams and commissioners from the start and throughout the patient's recovery journey.
We are holding a fast track Recruitment Day in March. This will give you the opportunity to come and see the Orchard for yourself. You will hear from our clinicians and nurses, the patients themselves and be able to tour the building and meet other staff.
If, after your tour, you are interested in working with us, we will assess your application and hold interviews on the same day. Applicants will be told if they have been successful by the end of the day and will walk away with a firm job offer in their pockets.
Candidates will need to bring:
• Proof of NMC registration or proof of undertaking a nursing degree course
• Driving licence (or two documents proving your address)
• Recent DBS certificate if you have one
We offer a generous relocation package (see below) to successful candidates who meet our relocation criteria plus a number of other staff benefits. These will be outlined to prospective candidates at the recruitment day.
We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you Recruitment Day.
