We're part of The Disabilities Trust, a charity that works alongside people with an acquired brain injury, autism, and learning or physical disabilities.

Our nurses support people with brain injuries to become more independent and reach their personal goals.

● the ability to deal positively with problems and difficult situations

Benefits you would receive

We offer a comprehensive benefits package:

● a salary of £32,831.29a year, increasing to £34,323.61 after three years.

● 38 days of annual leave, including bank holidays

● alternative weekends off and a 35-hour working week

● a pension scheme. Employees must contribute 5% and The Disabilities Trust will contribute 7.5% for nurses.

● life assurance that pays out a lump sum to your loved ones in the event of your death

● a confidential employee helpline available for staff to speak about concerns at work or home, 24 hours a day, seven days a week

● access to gyms, online GPs and other benefits through membership of the Perkbox app

● sickness scheme, which increases with length of service.

What we do at York House

York House is a specialist assessment and neurorehabilitation hospital for men and women with an acquired brain injury. They may have had a stroke, an accident or undiagnosed health condition, such as diabetes. We have space for 38 people with brain injuries at any one time.

Many people who stay at York House have complex needs, challenging behaviour, mental ill-health and addictions. We help them to manage these alongside their brain injuries. Some people are detained under the Mental Health Act and others may be placed under a Deprivation of Liberty order.

Rehabilitation combines psychiatry and psychology to help people cope with emotional, physical and cognitive challenges. Our aim is to support everyone to live as full a life as possible.

Who you'll be working with

You'll be working with a specialist team which includes psychiatrists, psychologists, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and other nurses. You'll also manage a team of rehabilitation support workers.

Our nurses also work collaboratively with families of people with brain injuries, NHS commissioning teams, case managers and other health professionals.
