An exciting opportunity for a secondment has become available for an experienced registered mental health nurse.

This is a senior Band 7 role, which will draw upon the applicants established skills as a mental health nurse, and experience in supporting people who may also present with co-existing conditions.

The post will compliment the high profile Rough Sleeper Initiative (RSI) fund that is working to turn around the lives of rough sleepers in the Fenland region. The project is being delivered through strong partnership between Fenland District Council, Ferry Project, Change Grow Live and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Foundation Trust, each having distinct expertise in engaging, encouraging and enabling rough sleepers into a sustainable home for life.

Key to their recovery from rough sleeping is the persons well-being. The Ferry Project run a Day Hub which acts as a central point for linking rough sleepers into vital support services. This approach provides access to support that is tailored to the unique needs of our clients, allowing them to realise their potential.

We are looking for a driven individual to join the team, who is passionate about people and facilitating the professional expertise required in supporting this dynamic cohort in assessing their mental health and signposting into the appropriate pathway.

The successful candidate will also use their skill, knowledge and experience to educate relevant partners in the identification and management of mental health and co-existing conditions.

The successful candidate can expect a high quality clinical support and supervision from the Dual Diagnosis Project Team Leader.
