Full and part-time roles available,

About the role

We are setting up an exciting new evening and weekend service in central Worthing and are looking for experienced, enthusiastic and resilient mental health workers to help run it for us.  

The service will provide a safe and supportive out-of-hours service specifically aimed at individuals who are struggling to cope when other mental health services are not available. This will include individuals where regular or frequent mental health crises are a feature of their on-going mental health needs and where having a Safe Haven which they can choose to attend when they need to will help to prevent the need to access NHS urgent care.  The service will operate 46 hours per week from 6-11pm on week-days and 12noon - 11pm at weekends. 

Safe haven workers will take responsibility for leading the operation of the service whilst on duty. They will oversee the running of each session ensuring that individuals accessing the service are effectively supported to stay safe and benefit from being in the safe haven environment. This will include direct work with individuals as well as overseeing the work of peer support staff and volunteers on each shift.  

We have a number of positions available and will consider applications from individuals who wish to work between 5 (full-time) and 1 evening & weekend shifts per week.  

More information about shift hours and expectations is provided in a briefing within the application pack. Having read this - Please indicate on your application if you want to work full or part-time. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
