We are looking to appoint additional Band 6 level Mental Health Practitioners within our Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Team (CRHT). The team is based within the Urgent Care and Access Pathway. Our strategy of ‘Step up to Great’ has led to some exciting changes in the way we work.

The roles will involve dealing with and supporting highly distressed people. Your skills and experience as highlighted in the Person and Job specifications attached to this vacancy will be key.

  • You’ll have access to a range of additional benefits such as discounted shopping, recognition schemes and various other packages you can draw from to help your work-life balance
  • We understand that you have a life outside of work and therefore offer a range of agile and flexible working opportunities for our staff – you care and so do we

Given the nature of the service, we operate 365 days a year over a 24/7 rotation providing cover day and night. Staff are expected to work shift patterns which include nights. We welcome applications from Registered Nurses, Social Workers and Occupational Therapists with experience of supporting people with an acute mental illness.
