We are looking for experienced, dynamic, creative, positive and motivated Mental Health Practitioners to join our Community Mental Health Service on the Isle of Wight.

You will work as part of a multidisciplinary team managing a caseload of people with complex mental health needs and offering evidence based interventions.

You will need to have excellent communication and engagement skills and a commitment to improving service delivery. As a member of the team you will contribute to the wider aims of the service through joint working, providing specialist consultation, training and supervision to other professionals and participation in service development/research.

Inreturn you will have a fulfilling and varied role within a friendly and supportive team. The team is committed to provide safe, sound and supportive services. You will receive regular supervision, with opportunities to develop clinical and professional practice in line with service users’ needs and organisational values.

This post would suit an experienced Mental Health Nurse, Occupational Therapist, or Social Worker who works in a recovery-focused way.

The CMHS has a very active group of service user volunteers who support us to develop the service, co-produce outcome measures and are central to ensuring that the service we provide is recovery focused and responsive to the needs of the people who use it.

We are currently improving the service so if you want to be involved in this and influence the way our service is developed, now is a great time to join the team

If you are interested in any of the above post and would like any more information or an informal discussion, please contact Jo Cullum on 01983 525254.
