We are looking for enthusiastic, dynamic and experienced individuals who can work confidently on their own as well as being a team player. Good communication and problem-solving skills are essential, as well as knowledge of mental illness and forensic awareness. We also are looking for people who can demonstrate the Trust's vision and values in practice, and are motivated to be involved in innovation and service development.
