We are proudly multi-disciplinary, our team has an almost even split of allied health care professionals. You would be joining a small team with good retention of around 20+ highly motivated and compassionate staff.

Opportunities for continuous personal development are frequent with staff being supported to undertake training in low level psychological interventions. We can also offer you a satisfying work-life balance, generous holiday entitlements, regular supervision  and the chance to make a real difference to somebody’s life,

The suitable candidate will be expected to undertake comprehensive assessments and risk assessments of service users with acute mental illness in a community setting.
