THIS POST IS AVAILABLE TO ALL APPLICANTS WHO CAN DEMONSTRATE RELEVANT PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION, EDUCATION TO DEGREE LEVEL OR ABILITY TO DEMONSTRATE EQUIVALENT LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE

Are you up for a new challenge and a different way of working?

The Wiltshire Mental Health Control Room Triage Service are looking for a new Part time team member. This is an exciting and rewarding post, supporting both Wiltshire Police and Avon and Wiltshire MH Partnership NHS Trust colleagues.

You will be able to make a positive impact on the outcomes of care for people with mental health needs who come into contact with the police. This can be a demanding role, but If you enjoy a challenge, are enthusiastic, a good team player and great communicator, then please consider applying.

We are a small but friendly team of Mental Health professionals and we pride ourselves on the good relationship we have built with our Wiltshire Police Colleagues.

The post holder will work autonomously on a day-to-day basis within the control centre environment. This is a purely control room based model of working; the role will be based in the Police Headquarters in Devizes.

You must hold a professional registration specialising in Mental Health (e.g. MH Nurse, MH Social worker), and be able to demonstrate substantial post-registration experience at Band 5 or above.

You must be able to demonstrate confidence in your clinical risk assessment skills and will need to provide evidence of continual professional development.

The service operates over 7 days and the successful applicants will be expected to work shifts which could include bank holidays, unsocial hours and night shifts.

**previous applicants need not apply**
