Bank Registered Nurse


We are the Mental Health & Learning Disability NHS Trust for County Durham and Darlington, Teesside, North Yorkshire, York and Selby.

We nurture the recovery journey of anyone in need of our help. In Our Trust, everyone has a say in how they are supported and treated because we listen to every person in our care until they feel understood. Our patients, their families and carers work together with us towards better mental health.

We’re committed to new thinking that improves the wellbeing of our region. We connect with our communities and partners to get mental health care right, in areas that really need it.

We won’t rest until everyone in our region has the mental health care they need, to lead their best possible life.

Job overview

Are you a registered mental health or learning disability nurse?

Are you interested in working with people with mental ill health or learning disabilities?

Are you passionate about improving the lives of people with mental ill health or learning disabilities?

Do you have time and flexibility to work across a range of services on an as and when basis as clinical demand arises?

If so then the Temporary Staffing Service has an exciting opportunity for Registered Mental Health or Learning Disability Nurses to work across inpatient wards. We wish to recruit individuals with experience in a care setting who are flexible, enthusiastic and have a positive caring attitude towards our client group.

Main duties of the job

This is an exciting opportunity to gain experience working as and when required for a busy mental health and learning disability Trust. Bank workers are not regular employees and have no entitlement to guaranteed or continuous employment.

Working for our organisation

Typical basic hourly rates for fully compliant bank workers including WTR uplift are £16.51.  Enhancements of 30% are applicable to nights and Saturdays and 60% are applicable to Sundays and Bank Holidays. NI & PAYE deductions will apply.

Successful applicants will be required to complete a mandatory training programme within the first 8 weeks of commencement which will provide all new recruits with the necessary skills to work effectively and safely within our unique services. This is approximately 8 days, although this is not 8 consecutive days there is a 5 consecutive day training session. It is therefore essential that applicants ensure that they can commit to this prior to applying.

Detailed job description and main responsibilities

Successful applicants will be responsible for supporting nursing staff in meeting the needs of services users, working alongside our established workforce delivering all aspects of care to promote choice and client independence.
