I Help to Make a Difference

A challenging yet rewarding opportunity has arisen for an experienced nurse to work within our Integrated Substance Misuse Team (ISMT) at HMP YOI Doncaster. This is a Category B adult male prison, located in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

What Will You Be Doing?

You will work with individuals, on a 1-1 basis, providing advice and information. You will support in group work delivery and liaise with prescribers and Recovery Practitioners on clinical interventions. You will occasionally be required to support dispensing. As a dynamic, creative, team player you'll become part of a multidisciplinary service. This is an great time to support and motivate individuals to take control of their lives and to make changes to overcome dependence on substances and move onto a life free of offending.

In conjunction with the service user, we develop individualised packages of care through comprehensive assessment and recovery planning. We deliver a range of treatment options including clinical and psychosocial interventions in both a group and 1-1 setting with recovery at the centre of our model.

What We Need From You

You will be a qualified Registered Mental Health Nurse or Adult Nurse (NMC registered) with a real passion for developing your clinical skills in an environment that is ever changing. You’ll have a flexible approach working within a team that encourage new ideas and opinions on how to improve the service.

You must have an understanding and commitment to recovery and a person centred approach.

If you are self-motivated and able to work autonomously as well as showing plenty of initiative when it comes to handling a wide range of situations, then this could be the right role for you!

Next Steps

If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by Alex Tigwell, the Internal Recruiter for this role.

The recruiter will submit your CV to the hiring manager and in turn Alex will arrange an interview for you to attend at HMP YOI Doncaster if the hiring manager feels that you are suitable for the job.
