Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust
If you want to find the best career development opportunity, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust is the right place for you! This Trust is looking to recruit Registered Nurses with experience in Mental Health nursing to join their oustanding team.
As a mental health nurse at GMMH you will be dedicated to supporting a person’s recovery and enabling them to have as much involvement and control over their condition as possible.
It is a demanding but rewarding career choice and every bit as valuable and satisfying as caring for those with a physical illness. You will need to build effective relationships with people who use our services, and with their relatives and carers. One day you might be helping someone to manage their depression, another you could be supporting someone else to return to work and engage in relevant therapies or social activities.
NO IELTS? NO PROBLEM!
If you are a Registered Nurse with experience in Mental Health you are not currently required to pass your English Language exam for us to accept your initial application. We are offering all candidates with experience in Mental Health care the opportunity to join our free IELTS/OET training and our full support to achieve their required scores at their English Language exam.
