Values Based Screener

At Hertfordshire Partnership Foundation Trust we are looking for people to join us who share our values and those of the NHS. Before your application can be considered please take part on our online values questionnaire, which you can find below. When you have finished you will be sent a 'completion code' by email, which will be valid for 6 months and required to submit your application form.

We are looking for a Band 4 STaR Worker to join our Early Intervention in Psychosis Team. You will provide support to service users based in the  St. Albans area. You will need experience of working with people who have mental health needs in the community. Your role as support worker will be part of the wider multi disciplinary team and support the community treatment of people as part of the First Episode of Psychosis Pathway.

The work is varied and rewarding. It can at times be challenging and unpredictable. You will need to be a good communicator, able to support people in distress or who are very unwell, be practical, sensible, and able to work alone as well as part of a skilled team. There is good opportunity for training in-house and also developmental opportunities for STaR Workers. 

This is a great opportunity for you to be part of a developing and exciting service, at the forefront of implementation of the First Episode of Psychosis pathway. This pathway will make a major difference to the quality of care received by those with First Episode Psychosis and greatly improve their ability to recover. You can play a valuable part in ensuring our service users receive the right treatment at the right time from an EIP service and can go on to lead full, hopeful and productive lives.
