The South Gloucestershire Early Intervention Team are looking for a positive and enthusiastic Nurse / Social Worker or Occupational Therapist to join our team.

Following the implementation of the Access and Waiting Time Standards set out by NHS England, the team has expanded and developed to be able to provide specialist interventions to those experiencing a first episode of psychosis.

The service currently consists of a Team Manager, Consultant Psychiatrist, Clinical Psychologist, Senior Practitioner, Community Mental Health Practitioners, CBT Therapists, Mental Health Support Worker, Administrator as well as a specialist Physical Health and Vocational Practitioner.

The South Gloucestershire Early Intervention in Psychosis team works with people aged 14- 65 who are experiencing a first episode psychosis or who may be at risk of developing a psychosis. The team works Monday to Friday 9-5; however, depending on service user need the team offer some flexibility outside of these hours.

This is an exciting opportunity for practitioners with experience and enthusiasm in delivering psycho-social interventions to contribute to the provision of services for these people and their families.

A community mental health practitioner is required to provide care coordination to our service users and deliver a range of psycho-social interventions.

This is an exciting time to join Early Intervention, with the role out of new standards and the opportunity to train and develop specialist skills.

Within the role you would be expected to understand and implement the model for First Episode Psychosis, be familiar with psycho-social interventions and working with individuals experiencing psychosis alongside their families.

You will be committed to a recovery based approach promoting social inclusion. You will be enthusiastic about making links with colleagues as well as other agencies and have an interest in talking to groups of people about psychosis.
