The home of Mental Health recruitment

Salary: £300 - £500 per day

Hunter Mental Health is currently supporting a Local Health Board in Wales. They have a requirement for experienced CHC nurse assessors to come and join their team at this point.

This health board specialises in providing the full range of services for a population of people across the six counties in Wales, the services include primary, community, mental health and acute hospital.

The Health Board has undergone a big effort to refresh the vision, commitments, purpose and values and these are reflected and efforts to embed these elements within communication, engagement and development of the Board. They are as follow:

  • To improve health and deliver excellent care.
  • To improve the health of all in which fall into the health board location, with a strong emphasis on the most vulnerable.
  • To accomplish this we will develop an integrated health service providing only excellence in care delivered within the public and other organisations.
  • To develop the workforce to make sure it has the required skills and operates in a rich learning culture.

Their requirement has arisen due to additional funding allowing new locum positions to be approved within the team. Please be expected to be able to start the role pending at maximum a 2-3 week notice period. The geography of the location itself, within the rural towns and picturesque  villages of North Wales, please be prepared to cover a large sparsely populated region of the country.

Due to the location the service is understanding of a strong possibility of a requirement to temporarily relocate for this position. As a result of this they are offering a standard day rate within a range of £300 – £500 per day to compensate for this fact. The roles will be available from Band 6 – Band 8.

Any successful individuals must have previous CHC Assessor experience and will be expected to hit the ground running as per expected with locum positions, so confidence in one’s ability is a big factor. You will be supporting the existing permanent staff.

If you feel like you match the correct prior experience, and requirements below, please do reply to this email with an up to date CV, and  your current availability. Feel free to get in touch with the mental health team at any time.

Finally we are looking for a number of experienced CHC Nurse Assessors, so if you have any friends or colleagues that would be interested in the post, please do refer them across to us to be eligible for a £300 referral bonus for a successful referral.
