Broadway Lodge is one of the leading and most respected abstinence-based addiction treatment centres in the UK. Since 1974, our multidisciplinary team have helped to transform the lives of thousands of people, supporting them in their recovery from addiction to alcohol, illicit drugs, prescription drugs, gambling, sex and gaming. We are immensely proud of the people who make Broadway Lodge what it is today. Without those who work so hard for us we wouldn’t be able to transform the lives of those who need it most.

We are currently seeking Registered Nurses to work with us at our rehabilitation centre in Weston-Super-Mare and assist in the delivery of detoxification and rehabilitation. Broadway Lodge is one of the few treatment centres in the UK that has specialist nurses on site day and night. This means there will always be someone available to our clients should they experience a medical difficulty or just need someone to talk to.  Our clinical team is made up of experienced and qualified psychiatrists, nurse prescribers, specialist nurses and health care assistants. As a member of our team, you’ll deliver the kind of care and support you’d want for your own family and build relationships with some incredible people.

This is an exciting opportunity for a qualified, enthusiastic, and compassionate individual to join our dedicated clinical team. No two days are the same at Broadway Lodge and working as part of a specialist multi-disciplinary team you will be supporting clients in their recovery from addiction.

This role is ideal if you are passionate about delivering high quality care or using your clinical skills and expertise in a new way. If you are a Nurse that has worked for the NHS or in the private sector and are looking for a change in a rewarding environment, then our rehabilitation center may be the place for you.
