We are looking for assertive and dynamic nurses with a paediatric or mental health background who will be able to adapt to different environments, and work within a multidisciplinary team. All applicants must have experience of working with children and families. Ideally, candidates will have previous paediatric or mental health nursing experience however we will accept newly qualified nurses onto the programme.

Successful candidates who join the programme will receive the following:

  • A full range of training and development opportunities
  • Regular input from a clinical facilitator
  • Peer-led reflective sessions and focus groups
  • Support within clinical areas with an allocated supervisor
