Help us achieve our vision for mental health crisis provision in Hertfordshire!

We’re looking for experienced, motivated and enthusiastic mental health support workers to work in our First Response Service. It’s a genuinely exciting time to join – we’re developing new ways of working, which will see us delivering a 24/7 responsive adult crisis and acute care service – but we need you to help us achieve our vision. The role will provide a genuine opportunity for you to develop your skills and make a difference.

You’ll have substantial experience of working with service users who have experienced mental health difficulties in an acute setting. We’d like to see a real passion for mental health crisis services, and the difference they can make to service users and carers. It’s a challenging role, in a challenging environment, but we believe it will provide a talented and ambitious person with real scope to develop themselves and our service.

The Trust itself is a leading provider of mental health and learning disability services with ambitions to be the leading provider in the country. We’ve been rated ‘Good’ by the CQC and believe we are on the path to become ‘Great’. We’re a strongly values-based organisation, so that you – and anyone that comes into contact with our services – will experience consistently welcoming, kind, positive, respectful and professional treatment.

You’ll have the opportunity to be part of a fantastic multidisciplinary team of staff who are genuinely committed to improving the lives of our service users and carers. We have an excellent range of staff benefits.

You’ll need to be a car driver (unless you have a disability as defined by the Equality Act 2010 which prevents you from driving).
