Thank you for your interest in working for Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Any general recruitment queries, please contact our recruitment team on Apply Now >>. The Trust is committed to supporting all staff and we are currently reimbursing all application costs for staff who are eligible to apply for EU settlement status.

Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust prides itself in striving to be an employer of choice.

All external appointments to the Trust will be required to attend a full Trust Corporate Induction which will be held at Carew House, Beacon Technology Park, Dunmere Road, Bodmin, PL31 2QN.

The induction programme is for all new staff and the length is dependent on the role you will be undertaking. It is an essential part of new staff training requirements and therefore attendance is mandatory.

Our Trust objectives are:

  • To deliver high quality care, safe and accessible services.
  • To maximise the potential of our workforce to deliver high quality care to patients
  • To achieve best value and ensure the Trust is sustainable and financially sound into the future
  • To diversify and develop services that meet commissioner and service user needs and expectations
  • To improve health and wellbeing by working in partnership to create life opportunities for our clients

Cornwall has excitingly been commissioned by NHS England to design and build a purpose built Adolescent Mental Health Inpatient Unit on the Bodmin Hospital site due to be opened in May 2019. It will be a 14 bed unit for 13 -18 year olds, including a High Dependency Unit.

We are striving for our unit to be innovative, creative and family focussed. We are inspired by some of the best practice and emerging evidence base from around the country and are not afraid to trial some new and original thinking for the benefit of our young people. We are looking for imaginative and playful individuals that are motivated by the opportunities and challenges of developing what we hope will be a gold standard unit.

It is very important to us that we create a unit that is therapeutic at its very core and takes into account child development, systemic thinking and trauma. It is our aim that we take a whole staff team approach to understanding, engaging and supporting young people. Our pledge is that every interaction will be therapeutic; we would therefore like to attract curious, accepting and empathetic team members who share in this ethos.

In order to achieve such ambitious goals we recognise the importance of supporting all our staff in building and feeling a part of a healthy, well-functioning team and service. We appreciate we are striving for cutting edge assessment and treatment within a highly emotive and distressing environment. We are therefore looking for individuals that are good under pressure; place high worth in team based working and with an unrelenting passion and dedication for working with young people and their families.

It is our intention to embed reflective practice, continual learning and clinical supervision into the essence of the service. We hope to offer a bespoke and rolling training package to all staff and would like to invest in our team member’s sense of mastery. We assure to be mindful of fostering career progression opportunities moving forward. We are especially interested in utilising new employee’s specialist expertise and interests.

Cornwall is a beautiful and fulfilling place to live, with opportunities to make the most of the stunning coastline or moors. Summers are vibrant and full of entertainment and winters allow you to have whole beaches to yourself. Bodmin is well located and easily accessible from the A30 and A38.

If you are looking to work somewhere that is unconditionally respectful to young people and their families, that value their staff as individuals and continuously strives to be the best unit it can be then we could be the team for you.

To achieve our Trust objectives, we prioritise the development of our staff. To support this, the following opportunities are available:

  • Protected CPD time for registered staff
  • Access to a dedicated central development fund to support CPD for all staff
  • Leadership and Management development programmes
  • Coaching and mentoring opportunities
  • A full clinical induction programme for essential operational skills
  • Access to a care certificate programme for our band 1-4 clinical staff
  • A bespoke and robust preceptorship programme to support newly qualified staff
