Lead Nurse & Independent Prescriber


Do you want to make a difference? Do you want to work in an environment where you can use your clinical skills and your creativity to achieve the best for people?

Here is your opportunity to lead the nursing team and support our multidisciplinary team.


Our teams are multi-disciplinary, they consist of a services manager, consultant psychiatrists, doctors, nurses, health care assistants, recovery staff, volunteers, administrators, and peer mentors, all focussed on bringing the individuals using our services the best possible support & interventions.


As a Lead Nurse/Independant Prescriber within Change Grow Live, you will work with people who use our services, helping them get to where they want to be in their recovery journey.

In our services no two days are the same. Every person who comes into our service is treated as an individual so understanding the importance of a whole person approach along with being curious, a good listener, a clinically robust practitioner and having a flexible approach are essential skills.


We want to support you to recognise and achieve your goals:

  • We hold regular national nurse and HCA forums, and you will have regular 1:1s and appraisals
  • We actively support our nurses with revalidation with protected continuing professional development time, which totals up to 6 days per year.
  • We also have a wide range of educational opportunities including free access to the RCNi learning platform and we pay for your NMC fee.
  • We offer you the opportunity to use the government backed Apprenticeship Levy fund to develop nursing practice in line with your specific role.
