Job Description

Could you support a service user in crisis? Could you show compassion to those with challenging behaviours? Do you consider family/carer involvement an important part of the care package delivery? If you answered yes to these questions, please apply to join our friendly and innovative North Wiltshire Intensive Service.
Our team holds a strong value base of honesty, passion, respect, integrity, diversity, excellence, hard work and support for each other and those we care for, a necessity required for crisis work.
Our team is based in Devizes, Wiltshire, a beautiful rural area, with very pleasant surroundings to work in. For those who like the night life or shopping, Chippenham, Swindon, Bath, Bristol, Marlborough & Hungerford are all within easy travelling distance.
The position is full time, but part time applicants are welcome to apply.
The role involves completing follow up assessments, both face to face and after hours, via telephone, and risk assessments of those individuals who are experiencing a mental health crisis. Our team provides a 24 hours service 7 days a week all year, so shift work is part of the role. We offer flexibility with roster requests where possible, as we are keen to retain/recruit excellent clinicians.
As a band 5 specialist clinician, you would be expected to hold organizational skills, have a good sense of self, show a willingness to learn and deliver therapy based interventions, be prepared to share ideas and explore ways of working with the team, provide and receive supervision/appraisals, hold relevant experience and registration, and possess a sense of humor.
The majority of our work consists of home visits, so a valid licence is essential. Following a thorough handover, the days work is allocated based on skill and experience. Of course documentation is an important part of what we do, and the expectation is it be completed in a timely and accurate manner.
We are welcoming of new staff joining our team, so we look forward to your application.
