Job description Job responsibilities

This is an exciting and dynamic role that offers the opportunity for development and implementation of high-quality services. Previous experience of working in acute services or home treatment teams is desirable, although not essential. We offer excellent staff support through clinical supervision and teamwork.

Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Team is integral to our Urgent Care Pathway and ensure people presenting to acute mental health services receive a compassionate, person- centred assessment.

This is a seven day per week service, which may necessitate some working unsocial hours, however, working unsocial hours does bring a salary increase, in line with Agenda for Change guidelines.

If you are looking for a role where you can use the experience you have gathered to make a real and tangible difference to a new and developing service, then this is the job for you!

We encourage flexible working. We know that a positive work/ life balance brings about huge health-related benefits, which has a positive impact on the care we provide. Please speak to us about flexible working, for example, home-working, part time hours, flexible start/ finish times or anything else. If it works for you and works for the role, we'll do our best to make it happen
