We are looking for enthusiastic and dynamic professionally registered Mental Health Nurses, Occupational Therapists or Social Workers to join our friendly team which provides a service to people in South Bristol.

Our team provides an ageless service and is looking for candidates with experience of working with adults of working age AND/OR older adults who have functional mental illness. The service is not commissioned to work with service users with a diagnosis of dementia.

If successful you would be working in a  friendly and supportive multidisciplinary cluster which is clinically led by a Consultant Psychiatrist. Clinical psychologists and Art therapists are also an integral part of the multidisciplinary team. Experience of community mental health or similar would be an advantage in this role.

You would be assessing need for secondary mental helath serives, planning/signposting and delivering clinical interventions to service users living in the community alongside our highly skilled multi-disciplinary team to make meaningful recovery a reality.

You will need to be organised and be mobile as you would be working from a number of locations across South Bristol. 

Benefits and Opportunities 

Plenty of support and supervision is available and there are opportunities to develop professional skills.

You will have the security of working for the NHS and will receive a competitive benefits package which includes excellent annual leave and staff discounts.

This is an excellent team which really cares about quality and which is dedicated to helping people to recover whilst supporting each other.
