Job overview

The Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment team is a multi-disciplinary team offering intensive short-term crisis intervention and home treatment in Chichester and Bognor Regis. Its aims are to prevent hospital admissions and to facilitate supported discharges from hospital. Covid-19 full vaccination may be a condition of employment for this role, unless an exemption applies. The successful applicant may have contact with vulnerable service users and we will therefore seek proof of being fully vaccinated during the recruitment process.

To protect the health and safety of our staff/workers, patients, and those attending our sites, we encourage our workforce to get fully vaccinated against COVID.

Main duties of the job

We are looking to recruit someone, who is enthusiastic, with excellent assessment, risk management and communication skills and is committed to working as part of a team and in partnership with service users and carers.

You will need to have some experience of crisis resolution practice / acute care and be willing to work flexible hours to enable the team to provide a 7 day service.

You will receive regular supervision and have the opportunity for personal and professional development as well as contributing to the team's development.

You will be expected to travel across sites in order to cover an urban / rural area.

This post offers an incentive or relocation package up to the maximum of £8000 (pro rata applies and subject to terms and conditions).

Working for our organisation

You will be joining a committed and dynamic multidisciplinary team and will be fully supported and empowered to make a difference to creatively develop many new ways of working, towards building safe and responsive quality mental health services fit for the future.

In return we can offer a supportive working environment and access to training opportunities to assist you to realise your potential and achieve a greater degree of job satisfaction.

As a Trust employee you will enjoy the following:
  • Excellent starting salary
  • NHS Pension contributions
  • 27 days holiday allowance plus bank holidays
  • Flexible Working patterns
  • Child care vouchers
  • Excellent training and development opportunities
  • NHS Discounts
  • Employee Assistance Programme

Detailed job description and main responsibilities

This is an exciting and dynamic role that offers the opportunity for development and implementation of high-quality services. Previous experience of working in acute services or home treatment teams is desirable, although not essential. We offer excellent staff support through clinical supervision and teamwork.

Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Team is integral to our Urgent Care Pathway and ensure people presenting to acute mental health services receive a compassionate, person- centred assessment.

This is a seven day per week service, which may necessitate some working unsocial hours, however, working unsocial hours does bring a salary increase, in line with Agenda for Change guidelines.

If you are looking for a role where you can use the experience you have gathered to make a real and tangible difference to a new and developing service, then this is the job for you!

We encourage flexible working. We know that a positive work/ life balance brings about huge health-related benefits, which has a positive impact on the care we provide. Please speak to us about flexible working, for example, home-working, part time hours, flexible start/ finish times or anything else. If it works for you and works for the role, we'll do our best to make it happen
