Delphi Medical is an innovative and specialist addiction (drug and alcohol) service working in prison settings, in patient-detox and in the community to inspire clients to progress safely and successfully from dependence to freedom.

Delphi have a shared purpose as part of the Calico Group to make a real difference to people’s lives and we are looking for Nurses to work within our prison services who share our values and have real passion for helping others.

Newly qualified Nurses and those without previous drug and alcohol experience are welcome to apply – full training will be provided.

What you’ll be doing

As a Registered Nurse within Delphi’s prison service team in Rochdale or Manchester, you will work closely with offenders offering medical interventions and clinical therapies to support their journey from dependence to freedom. Our Nurses offer professional, expert clinical support and advice which helps us to deliver exceptional service and support to our clients. You will undertake full clinical assessments, and assess, plan, implement and manage treatment care plans. You will also support with psychosocial interventions.

This is a really exciting and rewarding role where you’ll be able to apply your skills and expertise to positively impact people’s future, improving their prospects and quality of life. We are proud of the fantastic outcomes our teams achieve and we would love you to be a part of this.

As a Registered Nurse you will need to be able to work collaboratively within your Nurse team, the wider prison team and across the group with our Acorn Recovery Projects drug and alcohol service to provide outstanding and innovative services, delivering the best possible outcomes for those in your care.

You will be based at one of our prison services in either Rochdale (Buckley Hall) or Manchester (HMP Manchester). Whilst you will have a primary site, it’s important that we are always able to deliver the highest quality of service so some flexibility is required if cover is needed.

Your hours of work would be 35 hours per week and would work to a shift pattern (dependent on primary site location) including some weekend cover. We are happy to discuss flexibility with shift patterns.

  • The opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives
