This is an exciting time for ELFT. Our vision is to make a positive difference to people's lives by improving quality of life for all we serve. Our values are: We Care, We Respect, We are Inclusive – so we are looking for people who live and breathe these qualities when supporting service users and carers, and in their relationships with colleagues in the Trust and our partner organisations.

The Newham Adult Mental Health Recovery Teams are seeking forward thinking and highly motivated Mental Health Support Workers on a Band 4 permanent contract to support the delivery of high quality care for adults experiencing mental health and crisis problems. There are 4 recently commissioned posts available and this is a great opportunity to be employed in services which are involved in transforming the way mental health services are delivered in the community.

The Recovery Teams in Newham fulfil a number of integrated clinical roles including responsibility for the management and assessment of referrals and the continuing treatment of care co-ordinated Service Users within a recovery focused CPA framework while also providing some Outpatient Clinics.

The successful candidates will be required to work with Service Users and their families living in the borough who are experiencing a mental or psychological crisis as part of a Community Recovery Team FACT Model (Flexible Assertive Community Treatment) who do not meet the threshold for access to Home Treatment Team or inpatient hospital treatment services.

As part of the role, candidates will need to act as a facilitator in groups and other appropriate service activities where required and ensure safe and appropriate communication with Service Users as part of a multi-disciplinary team. This will therefore require effective communication and an ability to liaise with a range of social services or other mental health services with competence in undertaking and recording baseline physical health observations as required.

You will therefore also need to have applicable knowledge and experience within mental health services appropriate to meet the role requirements as defined within the Job Description.

We believe passionately in offering the best quality care in the least restrictive manner; in actively and creatively engaging service users using recovery-based interventions; providing care which is compassionate and sensitive to the diverse population of the local area and fostering an approach which accepts and embraces the uniqueness of each service user.

The teams operate Monday to Friday, 9 to 5; though it is expected that on occasion working outside of these hours due to clinical need will be necessary.
