Staff Nurse (RMN/RGN) in Eating Disorders - Band 5

Phoenix Ward is a QED accredited service, rated as ‘Good’ by the CQC in September 2019. We are seeking to recruit enthusiastic and dynamic staff nurses (including newly qualified nurses) to be part of our team on Phoenix Ward. The ward is a 20 bedded unit for the care and treatment of females and males aged 18 and above who have eating disorders. 

 This is an exciting opportunity to gain experience and training in this interesting and specialised area of mental health care.  A tailored training programme on caring for patients with eating disorders is provided, as well as training in psychological interventions and physical health interventions.  This nursing role on Phoenix Ward is ideal for someone who is motivated and is inspired to instill positive change.  We will support you to develop as a professional nurse, with opportunities to participate in quality and service improvement initiatives, and support you with NMC revalidation.

Phoenix Ward is part of the comprehensive eating disorder service provided at St Ann’s Hospital through Specialist Services at Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust.  St Ann’s Eating Disorder Service also comprises a large outpatient department, which provides care and treatment to those with eating disorders in North Central and North East London, and a day programme.

You can also see us featured on Louis Theroux's Talking to Anorexia on BBC iPlayer.

What staff say about us:

“We would like to say a big thank you to all Phoenix staff for their support and contribution to our learning. It has been wonderful working with you all. Thanks for the skills and knowledge gained from everyone”.

We will ensure that you are provided with the additional skills and knowledge in order to provide excellent care, and you will be supported through an induction period when you start. We offer a preceptorship programme and opportunities for clinical and managerial career progression. Other benefits include generous annual leave entitlement, flexible working, and salary sacrifice schemes (including cars, bicycles and home electronics).

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
