jobs description

Are you looking for a fulfilling and varied role? Do you want to develop your career in community learning disability nursing?

A rare and exciting opportunity for a Senior Community Nurse has arisen within our West Suffolk Community team for adults with learning disabilities and autism.

As a team we continually strive to develop the services we offer, to ensure they’re high quality and evidence based. To support our aims, we are seeking enthusiastic and highly motivated nurse to join our dynamic multi- disciplinary service. You’ll be joining an innovative team of nurses, working collaboratively with multiple agencies and professional clinicians.

Our service covers the geographical area of West Suffolk and you’ll be responsible for managing a caseload from our base in Bury St Edmunds.

It is the ideal time to join us; the way we care for people with Learning Disabilities in Suffolk is changing at NSFT as we have recently benefitted from £1.3 million of investment for our Acute... services and the introduction of a new Learning Disability and Autism Specialist Service.

The development is fully driven by the national Transforming Care Agenda. The Learning Disability and Autism Specialist Service is not only being invested in financially, with a fresh approach to ideas and service delivery being supported by the Trust, we are confident our new model of care is the very best for the people we care for.

If you’re able to think and work creatively with individuals and their carers – we want to hear from you!

The ideal candidate should possess excellent and varied communication skills, enjoy working as part of a team, and working closely with colleagues from a range of disciplines. You will be able to work independently, carry out comprehensive assessments and plan, implement and evaluate delivery of nursing interventions as part of the holistic approach.

You will also be able to demonstrate that you are able to apply your nursing skills to a wide range of situations, as you’ll be working with a range of adults with a learning disability living within the community.

We have a culture of continued learning, working as a close LD specialist pathway with each team having monthly protected days which includes a variety of training, reflection, supervision and service development.

We place an emphasis on the importance of clinical supervision and continued professional development; we offer a variety of opportunities in a supportive, friendly and stimulating working environment. We’ll support and encourage you to develop specialist experience and expertise as appropriate – whether you wish to be part of QI projects or be part of a leadership group planning and implementing the driving change for Transforming Care and Quality Standards for Learning Disability. Here is your opportunity!

Here at NSFT we pride ourselves on being a welcoming, talented, friendly and supportive team who like nothing better than sharing experiences and learning from each other. In addition to ongoing training and development opportunities, we are committed to providing an environment in which you can thrive.

Why work for us? We have challenges as a Trust, but we have ambitious aspirations, are pushing ahead with exciting transformation work and we need dedicated individuals to support us on our journey. We have strong, established nursing networks coupled with an exceptional leadership team who will ensure you are truly cared for and cared about.

Why Norfolk and Suffolk? The people here are warm and welcoming, you’ll never be far from the beautiful coastline or Broads National Park. We’re an hour and a half away from London and have an international airport in Norwich too. Our villages, towns and cities are packed full of history, independent cafes, shops and theatres. We have excellent shopping, eating out, top ranking schooling and affordable house prices too.
