At Hertfordshire Partnership Foundation Trust we are looking for people to join us who share our values and those of the NHS. Before your application can be considered please take part on our online values questionnaire, which you can find below. When you have finished you will be sent a 'completion code' by email, which will be valid for 6 months and required to submit your application form.

Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust currently provides mental health and learning disability services in Hertfordshire and Norfolk. We are seeking to recruit a Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN) under the role of Charge Nurse.

Are you innovative, creative and looking for a positive experience? If this sounds like you, then we would like to hear from you to come and join our team on a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). We are passionate about delivering innovative and compassionate care to our service users, and our clinical practice has been accredited by the National Association of Psychiatric Intensive Care Units (NAPICU).

The successful candidate will be working as part of a multidisciplinary team within our 10 bedded unit, providing care to male service users in need of a period of intensive care. Our service users have a wide range of mental health disorders and are in an acute phase of their mental illness. You will be working with experienced staff and junior staff, and there will be opportunities to develop and enhance your clinical skills through supervision, training and access to engage with the wider acute network.

The ward is located on a newly developed site with free parking and a spacious café onsite serving hot meals to NHS staff at a discounted rate.

There are opportunities to further widen your clinical expertise through coaching with senior managers. If you are from a BME background, we give you the opportunity to become part of the NHS Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES). 

We are looking for caring, committed, compassionate, creative, courageous staff to come and join us.

90 % of our staff say that they feel motivated, in their jobs, and would recommend the Trust as a place to work.
