Job Description

Job Introduction

This exciting new development within Nottingham City welcomes enthusiastic applicants to apply for this rare opportunity to be involved in shaping a brand new service that will support individuals with complex mental health needs.

Hunger Hill is a supported living service that supports men who may have dual diagnoses, a history of drug and/or alcohol use and forensic histories.

Passionate about people, you’ll enjoy the scope and support individuals to gain the skills to live independently. With an emphasis on key working, you’ll need to work flexibly to lead the team and help with the day to day running of the service.

At Turning Point, we support people across the UK with mental health issues. As a Team Leader you’ll make a real difference to their lives as you work closely with them to help them achieve their potential. Turning Point has several well-established services within Nottingham. You will form part of a wider supportive management team within the region and there is the opportunity for growth in the future.

Please note that it is envisaged that the start date for employment will commence from the 7th February 2022.

Main Responsibilities

As a Team Leader you will support the development of this service alongside the Service Manager, providing line management to a team of Recovery Workers, enabling the service to meet and exceed outcomes and quality requirements that promote independence and recovery for the individuals we support.

You will have some oversight of referrals to the service and will work closely within our multi-disciplinary team, to ensure the best possible outcomes for individuals we support.

The Ideal Candidate

A background in coordinating in an environment supporting vulnerable people in the community is essential. Experience of service planning and ensuring that services are well positioned to meet contractual requirements would also be advantageous. You will also have experience of working with people with mental health needs. Experience of working with individuals with dual-diagnoses is preferred but not essential.

You’ll need previous relevant experience of using a person centred approach in a mental health setting and a good understanding of the complex needs of individuals we support. You must be capable of prioritising your own workload and using your initiative. An effective team player, you will possess good communication skills, a flexible recovery focussed approach, a positive attitude and be able to adapt in a changeable environment.
