Main duties of the job

With the community transformation ongoing, there is so much development and innovation going on in Cornwall and within the Single Point of Access team right now. We are working to create a 'no wrong front door' service providing easily accessible, place based care. The Single Point of Access team will be expanding their offer to provide extended assessments and brief interventions, meaning people can access the right help at an earlier point in their recovery journey. This post is key to being able to support the increased team and enable these changes to happen. The Team Manager will be responsible for the day to day management of the team and will work closely with the Operational Manager and Clinical leads on transformation and development of the service. We are looking for a team manager who is able to lead compassionately working collaboratively with the multi-disciplinary team, to ensure that they are fully supported to provide needs led care and treatment for our service users.

About us

We're an NHS community and mental health provider Trust based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. We deliver community and hospital-based care to improve people's physical and mental health. We also provide specialist support to people with dementia or a learning disability.

We are a people organisation and people matter to us. As part of the team, you'll help support the health and wellbeing of the people who live and visit this beautiful part of the UK.

Over 4,000 people make up the Trust. This includes doctors, nurses, therapists, plus admin and support staff.

We work in people's homes, in community clinics and bases. Some staff work from one of our 13 community hospitals. Our aspiration is to have great people, provide great care, be a great place to work and a great partner.

Approximately 568,000 people live here. A third of people who live in Cornwall are supported by acute hospital services in Devon. As a result, we also work closely with our partners in Devon. In the summer, and during other holidays lots of people choose to visit the area. This increases the numbers of people who use our services.
