We are currently looking for highly motivated, experienced and innovative Band 6 Psychiatric Nurse or Mental Health Social Worker to join our CMHT. We are a lively, dynamic, nurturing, supportive and busy multi-disciplinary team which provides care coordination and recovery focused care for individuals with complex and challenging mental health needs. You will be responsible for managing a caseload of service users, covering shared care and carrying out assessments. You will be involved in training, mentoring and supervising new and unregistered staff as well as providing excellent front line clinical care.

Our CMHT to provides compassionate, kind and recovery focused care to our patients, carers and their families. You will need to be able to work autonomously in the community and use your own initiative. The successful candidates will have sound clinical skills, have good administration and IT skills, as well as a good working knowledge of CPA processes, report writing, organizational skills, safeguarding knowledge and the ability to identify issues and demonstrate ownership of change processes. You will need excellent assessment and communication skills. You will need to work alongside other agencies to promote holistic recovery focused care.

Our Trust vision is to deliver world class treatment and care, together with our service uses, their families and our partners in health and care. We have established an ambitious programme of transformation to support the improvements we need to make and create a needs based, holistic approach to physical and mental wellbeing, treatment and recovery for our patients and resilience support for carers and families.

We believe our staff are our most valuable asset; and excellent, well trained and motivated staff will help us deliver this transformation, creating a culture of compassion, collaboration and continuous improvement. We have our own unique, internal Academy of Excellence supporting registered staff to gain support throughout their careers to realise their aspirations as well as links to local universities to support further education and development.

We support staff in clinical practice in many ways, and this includes having a team of Practice Educators to support and guide staff as they work alongside them. We are also increasingly looking to enable staff to move seamlessly into roles that best meet their needs at that time, both within the service and across the division as well as within the local healthcare system. We are one of only a few NHS Trusts in the country to offer fully funded leadership and management qualifications to staff.
