Are you passionate about improving the lives of people that experience psychosis? Would you like the opportunity to work within a supportive and recovery focused team? If yes then we have the job for you!!
We have an exciting opportunity to join the Enhanced Community Rehabilitation Service in West Sussex.

You will join an established occupational therapy team delivering community interventions in line with
national guidance.
We would welcome applications from people looking to be supported to progress to a band 6 post through a development period.

Main duties of the job

The Enhanced Community Rehabilitation Service is an exciting and innovative service in West Sussex. You will hold a small caseload of people within a Multi-Disciplinary Team who are cared for within a recovery focused model of care.
You will work in partnership with a diverse team of clinicians and support staff, including our voluntary, community and social enterprise partners.

Effective communication skills, a good clinical knowledge base, and a commitment to caring for patients in the community must be demonstrated. You must be enthusiastic, self-motivated, flexible and able to work as part of a multidisciplinary team.

Working for our organisation

Currently, community mental health services are undergoing a real transformation and you could be part of these exciting developments. Our community mental health teams will become part of a much more integrated network of services and our mental health clinicians will be central in driving the changes, in close partnership with our primary and third sector colleagues.
This post will provide the right candidate with the opportunity to develop their career. This is a supportive team where you will be offered mentorship and supervision from senior colleagues and management support. The community rehabilitation service will actively support your continuing professional development and the implementation of the AHP strategy.
We recognise that working in mental health can be stressful so we prioritise staff welfare, providing regular supervision, reflective practice, mentoring, and any other support that our clinicians need to ensure their wellbeing.
