Who we are

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.

Working at Priory

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.
