Are you passionate about a Recovery focused Community Mental Health service delivery?

Do you enjoy participating in robust multi-disciplinary working and ground breaking partnership service delivery?

The Gt Yarmouth Recovery Team and integrated Waveney Recovery team have newly acquired a number of band 6 posts for qualified and registered RMNs, OTs or Social workers.

We are proud of our responsive community teams and robust stepped up care system. The staff in the teams, to enable service delivery have access to a supportive team approach, with opportunities also via case formulation, careful caseload management and a qualitative program from our locally delivered Recovery College. You will be part of the process of daily triage of referrals and assessment of referrals to the service.

Successful candidates would have plenty of opportunity to be involved in creative co-produced service development such as our Recovery Information Centres, and partnership working with third sector providers. For your own professional development there is access to on-going professional training supported by the Locality and opportunities to work with a variety of professional colleagues such as peer workers, psychological therapists and advanced nurse practitioners to develop your skills.

Do make a time to visit for an informal look round. Ring the team leaders Cameron Thomson on 01502 532100 for the service based at Victoria House in Lowestoft, or Sharon Rose Duke and Ruth Terry team leaders for the Yarmouth community team on 01493 337648.


Interviews will be held on 1st February 2018 from 9am to 2pm.
