If you looking for a challenging and rewarding nursing role and want to develop your clinical skills in an environment where staff feel “safe” and “supported” then this could be the new job for you!

As a Bank Mental Health Nurse (RMN), you will be a qualified Registered Nurse (Mental Health) with a real passion for developing your clinical skills in an environment that is ever-changing. You’ll have a flexible approach to working within a team that encourages new ideas and opinions on how to improve the service.
