Delphi Medical is an innovative and specialist addiction (drug and alcohol) service, inspiring their clients to progress safely and successfully from dependance to freedom. They have a shared purpose as part of the Calico Group to make a real difference to people’s lives.



Each part of the Calico Group has its own specialism and expertise but the “One Calico” vision is to help people to build a better future, whatever their background and wherever they are in their life’s journey.


Because we know we can always do more for our customers, we are continually expanding the range of services which we offer. This means we need more amazing people who share our values and have real passion for helping others.


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. Your role will involve a mix of 1:1 and group work delivery supporting a large group of diverse and challenging individuals. This is a really exciting and rewarding role where you’ll be able to positively impact people’s future, improving their prospects and their quality of life.


As a Registered Nurse you will need to be able to work collaboratively within your team and across the group with our Acorn Recovery Projects drug and alcohol team 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.


What you will get in return

  • The opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives
  • Competitive salary
  • 36 days annual leave (including bank holidays)
  • Generous occupational pay schemes
  • A fabulous wellbeing programme
  • Be part of a values lead culture

And this shows – this year Delphi achieved an incredible 2 out of 3 Stars in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to work for survey. But in case you’re still not sure, why not take a look at our company website for more information


What you’ll need to be a success

  • The ability to engage with challenging individuals and build trusting relationships – patience and resilience will be key!
  • A passion for supporting people, providing exceptional care
  • A flexible and innovative approach to service delivery
  • RMN (Mental Health Nurse) / Registered General Nurse status and relevant qualifications
