SAMH - Practitioner
Hours: 37.5 per week
Practitioners provide direct support to individuals in homes and communities to improve their mental health and wellbeing. Support is focused on enabling people to build on their existing skills or develop new skills, increase their self-esteem and confidence, which in turn will encourage involvement and promote independence.
You will be able to demonstrate good communication skills and a mature attitude together with adaptability and enthusiasm. Knowledge and experience in supporting people with mental health problems is desirable as is experience working with people who have had long term hospital admissions. As the posts will involve a variety of shift patterns including evening and weekends and may also include sleepovers and on-calls you will be flexible in the hours and shifts you are available to work.
Applications are welcome from people who have experienced mental health difficulties. A PVG check is required for this post, along with a Right to Work in the UK check. Candidates will also be required to provide proof of qualifications declared on the application form.
Further information and an application form is available from their website.
Please note the closing date for applications is Monday 22 January 2018.
