This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, motivated individual to join our experienced team working full time 37.5 hours per week in the Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley Community Mental Health Service for Older Adults.

We actively encourage applications from people with experience of working within a community mental health care setting. We are looking for individuals who have experience of working within mental health and are able to engage and work with people in a practical way that enables recovery in both people with dementia and functional mental health difficulties.

The post holder will work with clients, in their own homes, and will be expected to co-facilitate some practical groups and activities if required, both within the service and in the local community. The post holder will be expected to work 9-5 Monday to Friday.

In return for your commitment, we offer excellent opportunities for personal development through supervision and appraisal.
