Job Description

We are looking for 2 enthusiastic Nurses, social workers or Occupational therapists to join our friendly Multi-disciplinary team. You will require experience of working as an Nurse/SW/OT in mental health settings and awareness of delivery of community mental health care.
You will hold and manage a caseload of people as a case manager. The team covers an ethnically and culturally diverse area, and you will have the opportunity to work with clients from a wide range of backgrounds, and with a wide range of psychosocial needs.
By assessing your clients and their carers needs you will be able to access and sign post to a wide range of community resources and provider services available in the local area.
You will work with clients to identify goals as part of overall care, and establish and evaluate appropriate treatment programs for service users within the team.
In future and under the guidance of senior staff the post holder will be expected to participate in providing quality first line psychosocial assessments as part of GMMH's Functional CMHT's duty role and work proactively in forging professional working relationships with multi-agencies.
These posts will prepare the post holders to develop the skills and experiences in preparation to apply for band 6 practitioner posts within the community
All of our service developments align to the best available evidence and GMMH is committed to delivering Royal College of Psychiatrists accredited services over the coming months. As the successful candidate, a wide range of opportunities to enhance and develop your clinical skills will be open to you.
Research and Innovation are championed in our services. We have a number of Trust-wide R&I, professional and divisional forums were service development ideas are derived from our front-line teams. Staff are actively encouraged to participate in such opportunities.
The CQC has recognised GMMH services to be well-led and we have been rated as Excellent in this area. Understanding and responding to individual development needs and priorities are critical aspects of how we lead and support our teams to deliver the highest quality and most effective care. We therefore recognise that a commitment to supporting our staff to develop themselves is important and essential. As such, you will receive an individualised review of your learning and development needs, as well as focused support at a service and trust level around how to achieve your goals. Additionally, to support meeting learning and development needs, we have close links with local academic institutions and have a wealth of expertise within GMMH that supports delivery of in-house training and education programmes.
As we recognise the importance of supporting our staff to achieve an effective work-life balance and also maintain positive wellbeing, we work with staff to develop ways of supporting flexible working for them. Our services describe themselves as mutually supportive and we recognise the challenges that can be associated with mental health care delivery. To further support our teams, we have internally run complex case discussion forums facilitated by our team psychologists and are committed to the delivery of robust supervision, to ensure that staff are supported in their clinical practice.
Finally, why should you come to work with us? Manchester is world renowned, versatile and it offers people the opportunity to experience a wide range of activities, cultures, educational opportunities, theatrical experiences, tastes, and social opportunities. It can adapt to be whatever you would want and has something for people of all ages, 24/7, 365 days a year.
