Mental Health Matron - PICU

Are you looking to take the next steps in your nursing career? We’re seeking an inspirational leader to join our collaborative team as Matron, running our newly refurbished PICU here at NSFT…

We’re looking for a special person to join us to build and lead a team alongside the MDT; this is a highly respected post that would receive the guidance of a supportive, visionary management team who have pledged to work together, to make sure that we do all we can to help deliver outstanding care to people admitted to our inpatient units.

As Matron of PICU you’ll be at the heart of the ward, leading from the front with a level head and a flexible, energised attitude. This is a key role and we’re committed to supporting the successful candidate; you’ll have an individualised development plan which includes the option to access leadership programmes.

Rollesby will work in conjunction with our PICU based in Suffolk to ensure our PICU pathway is lined up. As Matron of our Norwich based PICU, you’ll have the opportunity to work collaboratively with the wider pathway e.g. our Mother and Baby Unit, our low secure unit, and our other inpatient areas based at Hellesdon, to ensure we have a joined up approach to supporting those in our care.

Main duties of the job

We will be welcoming a Matron who will be supported to deliver care specific to the population, nurturing the skills of the team in supporting people at their most unwell, whilst creating a therapeutic, safe environment.

The team will consist of a variety of highly skilled professionals including an established consultant psychiatrist, nursing, psychology and OH colleagues. You will work closely with all of them to ensure the care is not only outstanding but that the team is well developed and supported.

We are looking for an experienced nurse, preferable with PICU experience with a can-do approach, who is aware of the operational pressures of a rehabilitation unit. We are looking for a strong and proven leader who can take responsibility for decisions and support junior members of the team. 

Communication is key.  We are looking for someone who can communicate in a professional manner with a wide spectrum of people to achieve the best outcome. Excellent organisational and problem-solving skills are a must for this role as you will be working in an environment where creativity on how to approach situations is key.

We are also looking for someone who has the confidence in their own conviction, this role does involve making decisions which can be very difficult to make.

However most importantly we are looking for someone who has exceptional people skills as this role requires you to make difficult decisions whilst having to maintain professional relationships.

Working for our organisation

Here at NSFT we pride ourselves on being a welcoming, talented, friendly and supportive team who like nothing better than sharing experiences and learning from each other. In addition to ongoing training and development opportunities, we are committed to providing an environment in which you can thrive.

Why work for us? We have challenges as a Trust, but we have ambitious aspirations, are pushing ahead with exciting transformation work and we need dedicated individuals to support us on our journey. We have strong, established nursing networks coupled with an exceptional leadership team who will ensure you are truly cared for and cared about.

Why Norfolk and Suffolk? The people here are warm and welcoming, you’ll never be far from the beautiful coastline or Broads National Park. We’re an hour and a half away from London and have an international airport in Norwich too. Our villages, towns and cities are packed full of history, independent cafes, shops and theatres. We have excellent shopping, eating out, top ranking schooling and affordable house prices too.

Detailed job description and main responsibilities
