On Monday 31st January 2022, the Government announced that it is reconsidering the legislation requiring vaccination to be a condition of deployment. Any decision to no longer make the COVID-19 vaccination a legal requirement for certain NHS staff, is subject to parliamentary process. This means, there will now be a period of further consultation following which MPs will vote on whether to reverse the current legislation.

This potential change to government policy means that the Trust has paused activity relating to this and will not be asking you to provide evidence of a vaccination at this time. If you are successfully appointed into a post we will keep you updated with how any changes in law will affect you.
Job overview
Hi, my name is Sarah and I am the Community Team Manager for our community team within Children, Family and Young People’s services here at NSFT. Having recently relocated to Norwich I wanted to share my experience so that you to will consider a move to Norfolk into the roles I have in my team.

It is always difficult to move to a new area and to a new team, I have received a really warm welcome and have been really impressed that I have been given the opportunity to make a difference, to put my own spin on things and the role has been moulded to suit me and my skill set.

The team are strong and credible, we have a friendly team atmosphere where ideas are welcomed and explored. We are creating the conditions to embrace change whilst always ensuring the basics. We work hard to ensure that from the very moment people access our services to the moment they leave their care will be outstanding.

A role which will challenge your thinking, expand your knowledge and connect with your heart

Due to an increase in funding, we are advertising for multiple roles within the Central Youth teams. Full time and part time applicants will be considered.
Main duties of the job
Whilst experience working with children and young people would make you perfectly suited to this role, we are really open to welcoming people from clinical backgrounds who have experience in other areas of mental health. We understand that you will be able to bring with you a wealth of skills and experience to the team and would welcome ways of thinking.

We are looking for people to join us with enthusiasm, optimism, fresh ideas and energy. We will expect you to want to work clinically but be equally as comfortable being part of strategic decision making.

We are looking for a dedicated mental health professional with either Nursing, Social Work or Occupational Therapy qualification. We would love to hear from you if you have experience in working with people who suffer with mental health difficulties and you have at least 12 months post qualification experience in a mental health setting.
Working for our organisation
We want you in our team if you share our values and core beliefs. If you want to work in an environment of mutual respect, transparency, integrity and collaborative working we are the team for you.

We are an improving Trust, with ambitious aspirations and pushing ahead with exciting transformation work. We have strong, established nursing networks coupled with an exceptional leadership team who will ensure you are truly cared for and cared about.

I had not realised how beautiful Norfolk was until I moved here. The people are warm and welcoming and I’ve found some amazing restaurants in Norwich. I have felt the benefits to my wellbeing living in such a beautiful part of the county.

There will be so many things you don’t know or don’t always hear about Norfolk, Norwich is vibrant, diverse, quirky and original but only a stone’s throw from the sea, the rugged countryside and the beautiful beaches.

FOR POSTS WITH DIRECT SERVICE USER CONTACT – Please be advised that due to recent changes in the DBS Service, organisations no longer receive copies of DBS Disclosures – these are sent directly to candidates only. Therefore, it will be your responsibility, if successful, to ensure that this is taken to the appointing officer as soon as you receive it.

Alternatively, if you have subscribed to the update service, we will be able to check your status once we have your authority to do so.

The Trust has now introduced a DBS Update Service which is a contractual requirement. You need to subscribe when you have applied for your DBS clearance and there is a time limit to subscribe of 19 days after receipt of your DBS disclosure. Please ensure that this is completed within the set time scale.

This update service is an annual subscription at a cost of £13 to you. This will enable the Trust to have instant online access to your DBS record, with your consent, and so will remove the need for you to have to apply for this repeat check again.
