Care and Compassion Quality and Teamwork Dignity and Respect Openness, honesty and responsibility

NHS Borders are delighted to invite applicants to join our Acute Mental Health Service. These exciting, potentially lifestyle changing opportunities offer a career in the Scottish Borders and a chance  to experience the benefits of rural life with very easy access to major cities such as Edinburgh (37 Miles) Glasgow (75 miles) and Newcastle (75 miles).

Our Acute Mental Health Services deliver person-centred, enhanced care within our inpatient setting, Huntlyburn Ward. Huntlyburn is a 19 bedded acute admissions unit within NHS Borders and you will be required to work as part of the multidisciplinary team assessing and treating patients presenting in an acute phase of illness.

We are looking for a motivated and innovative individual who can make a contribution to the care and treatment of patients on the ward. In return we offer a supportive team, with good opportunities for growth and career development.

The role is permanent with 34.5 hours available per week with an expectation to work shifts, including night shift. We can offer some flexibility with the hours to the right candidates if required. 

We would love to share the wonderful work that we are doing in the Borders and if you would like to find out more about these potentially career defining roles please contact us using the details below.

Unfortunately we are not in a position to provide sponsorship. This vacancy may close early if we receive multiple applicants.

For further information, please contact; Sarah Macfarlane, Senior Charge Nurse

*Please note: As this is a part time post the salary shown will be pro rata*

***PLEASE NOTE: We cannot accept late applications so please ensure your application is submitted early***

NHS Scotland is reducing their full-time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay. This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff. This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours. However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period, for which you would be paid, until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Hiring Manager. 

NHS Scotland is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination. The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best. To this end, NHS Scotland welcomes applications from all sections of society.
