Job Advert Role Description

At Priory, we aspire to deliver the highest quality of care and support. As a Bank Mental Health Nurse, you’ll have the opportunity to support our teams across a range of mental health services, on your own schedule. We welcome anyone looking for a more flexible work pattern, additional shifts, or a chance to support people with a variety of needs.

The Priory Group is the largest private behavioural health provider in the UK, with around 350 facilities in our Healthcare and Adult Care divisions. We strive for excellence, and although the vast majority of our sites are already rated Good or Outstanding by the CQC, we always aspire to do better. Putting our people first is central to our values. This includes the people we support and their families as well as our dedicated staff who make a difference every day.

Being a Bank Mental Health Nurse at Priory will provide you with excellent clinical and educational opportunities as you’ll likely work on different wards and teams, allowing you to gain exposure and acquire expertise in many mental health specialities.

Of course, we do our best to match you with the services and shifts that work best with your skills and lifestyle. But no matter where you work, our Bank Mental Health Nurses are always part of the team. You’ll be in all daily meetings and involved in all relevant decision-making. Your ideas and expertise will be heard as we all work together to provide the best for our patients.

As well as giving you the flexibility to work around your life, we want to make sure you feel at home at Priory. You’ll be partnered with your own dedicated line manager who will check in regularly to ensure you have the training and support you need. Depending on the site you’re working at, you’ll receive either free or heavily subsided meals and almost all of our sites offer free parking. You will also be entitled to annual leave. Many of our Bank Mental Health Nurses have progressed or transitioned into permanent positions with us, so this could be an option if your situation changes in the future.

All we ask in return from our Bank Mental Health Nurses is that you are a fully registered nurse with active NMC PIN and that you have some experience working in a similar clinical environment. Aside from that, all of our people must show integrity and compassion in their work and share our goal of delivering excellent care for our people.

Expectations of nurses to receive higher bank rates:

Minimum 8 shifts per 4-week period
Work nights/weekends as needed
Work on any ward at direction of nurse manager
95% compliance with training modules (online or offered in person) at any one time
Maximum one cancellation within 72 hours of shift start in 4-week period
Cannot have been Priory permanent staff in past 3 months unless in new substantive post
