At Camden and Islington NHS foundation trust our staff and service users have worked closely to create a set of values that make sure people who use our services get the best possible chance of a rapid recovery.

We have 3 key priorities which are:

  • Early and Effective Intervention
  • Helping People to Live Well
  • Research and Innovation

The cultural pillars that help us achieve our key priorities are:

  • We value each other
  • We are empowered
  • We keep things simple
  • We are connected

By coming to work at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust you will be joining a Trust with a national reputation for research, where services recognise that research underpins its commitment to providing high quality and innovative clinical care.

As an applicant for this role, you are urged to demonstrate within your supporting statement a combination of evidence that reflects your competence to meet the job specification and provide examples of how C&I values are an integral part of the way you have and will continue to deliver service.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to for a Band 6 Nurse to join the Islington Assertive Outreach Team

Camden & Islington are one of the few trusts in the country that still have an Assertive Outreach Service. The service aims to engage and treat service users with severe and enduring mental health problems, who are difficult to engage and may have a dual diagnosis of substance misuse.  With smaller caseloads, we are able to work more intensively and deliver a team approach. 

Although the successful post holder will act as care co-ordinator for a defined group of clients, the service utilises a team approach and has a flexible multidisciplinary team structure. This post ideally suits a Band 6 Nurse with experience of supporting individuals (and their families) with psychotic illness in a community setting. The successful applicant will also be encouraged to develop their leadership skills, supervise junior staff and will deputise for the Team Manager at times. Other development activities include peer support, regular supervision and participation in on-going professional development.

Potential applicants are encouraged to speak to Candice Klotnick (Team Manager) for further information on 0203 317 6590.

Applicants are advised the selection process will comprise of a written test and interview.
