What’s special about this opportunity?

Berkshire Healthcare Foundation Trust can provide you with a dynamic, people-centred environment, where you will be supported by a strong and conscientious multi-disciplinary team, be empowered to engage creatively and autonomously with patience and compassion, providing exceptional clinical care for vulnerable people in the community and essential expertise to their carers.

The Trust is an exceptional employer. We value our employees and put people first. We will provide you with an excellent working environment that has just been recognised with a ‘Good’ rating overall, and as an ‘Outstanding’, well-led, organisation in our latest CQC inspection, which found that: ‘The staff across all the community health and mental health services we inspected showed a caring attitude to those who used the Trust services. Feedback from people using services and their relatives and carers was highly positive. Staff in all services were kind, compassionate, respectful and supportive.’

Working in a passionate team, you will have access to our Trust-wide Learning and Development programme and be supported in your career and personal growth with opportunities to help you build your Continuing Professional Development portfolio, extend your skills and ensure that you excel.

We are pioneers in compassionate leadership and Quality Improvement, which is about creating a culture where everyone has a voice and where service users and staff collaborate to have a direct impact on the things that matter most.

About you:

You are an enthusiastic, registered learning disabilities / mental health nurse, educated to diploma or degree level. With a passion for caring for patients with complex needs, you will have excellent communication and therapeutic skills, a great personality and the resilience to help us transform our patients’ lives. Creating a trusted and supportive relationship with carers, you will be proactive, ensuring patients receive a seamless delivery across a multi-disciplinary team.  Working collaboratively, you will be an inspirational member of the Trust, striving to be your very best and supporting colleagues in the delivery of compassionate, safe and structured care.  You will be enthusiastic to share your knowledge when working with more junior team members and students, and be a sympathetic advocate for patients, ensuring that their dignity is maintained and cultural and spiritual values are met. A calming influence, you will be able to deal with difficult and distressing situations professionally and with sincerity. In return, your dedication, energy and drive will be rewarded with the support of a dedicated team that strives to create a progressive, warm, friendly and empathetic environment. Caring for patients in the community, you will enjoy working across multiple sites and have access to your own car.
