Come and join us at AWP Mental Health Trust and become an NHS hero by supporting your local community.

We are very proud of our amazing staff, who are continuing to work throughout the COVID19 pandemic, supporting people with mental health issues across the region.

We are looking for new colleagues, with a passion for helping people, to join us as Healthcare Support Workers in our team based at Sandalwood Court, Swindon.

Working closely with our multi disciplinary teams, supporting service users, you will receive training to complete the NHS Care Certificate and a Level 3 Healthcare apprenticeship. If you have some experience of caring work already that would be great – but if not, we will support you to develop the skills and experience needed.

This role is on a ward that operates on a 24/7 shift basis.  Staff will qualify for unsocial enhancements in addition to their basic pay.

What matters to us is your passion, commitment and determination to succeed.

You will have excellent communication skills, and be happy to participate in the internal 24 hours, 7 day a week rota to meet the needs of people who use our services.

We expect you to be able to demonstrate how you have worked effectively in a multi-disciplinary team setting. You will need to demonstrate your commitment to personal development.

Your attitude is crucial.  At Applewood, we deliver person-centered care. We believe that with our help, people can improve their mental health, to recover independence and return to the community. We expect you to share our vision for mental health care.

As an NHS employee you will have a wide range of benefits and discounts, including the NHS pension scheme and a generous annual leave entitlement. Best of all you will have the reward of doing a job that really matters, with colleagues who care.

Please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
