Contract: Permanent post
Salary: £21,301 – £23,284 pro rata per annum
We’re looking for people to support us deliver a new service. The purpose of this service is to provide a safe, welcoming, comfortable place for people in immediate acute emotional distress. The focus of this service is on supporting episodes of emotional distress rather than ongoing support intervention. The post will be based in a central location in Weston-super-Mare.
You’ll have experience of working with people with long term mental health and complex needs and carrying out needs and risks assessments. You will need to take a holistic view, with a recovery and psychologically informed approach.
You’ll be a good communicator, be great at building trust and be keen to work as part of a new team to contribute to the delivery of this valuable service.
This is a night time service, so you will need to be able to work evenings.
Second Step is a leading provider of mental health services. We offer excellent training and support, and we acknowledge the commitment and dedication of our employees, which is the foundation of our success. We would like to hear from people who share the same belief and values.
