West London Mental Health NHS Trust provides physical and mental health care to people living in the London boroughs of Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, and Hounslow. Our services include community-based integrated care for people with long-term conditions, public health programmes for children and adults, smoking cessation and a full range of mental healthcare in the community, in hospital and secure settings in west London and at Broadmoor Hospital in Berkshire.
We positively welcome applications from people who represent diverse communities and those with a lived experience of either mental health conditions or learning disabilities.
West London Mental Health NHS Trust is committed to eliminating discrimination for all groups and achieving equality of opportunity regardless of age, disability, gender, race, religion or belief and sexuality. We aim to create a workforce that is representative of the communities we serve at all levels of seniority within the Trust. We are therefore particularly interested in receiving applications from people from ethnic minority backgrounds’.
There are exciting opportunities to play a vital role in two specialist multi-disciplinary services - The Ealing & The Hounslow Adult Early Intervention in Psychosis Teams which are based in Ealing & Hounslow and serve the whole of their boroughs.
We are supportive, energetic, focused, friendly and hardworking teams; developing and delivering a service to younger people (18-34) with psychotic presentations.
You will fit in with this ethos, be flexible, proactive and practical and will provide emotional support to our service users and their families and carers. You will work closely with your team colleagues; you will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and be able to work as part of a team. This is both a challenging and a rewarding job.
It would be advantageous if you had experience in working with clients who need support in finding suitable education, employment, or training. If not, you will need to develop a degree of expertise in this field, once in post.
This post may be of particular interest to individuals with local knowledge of borough resources for younger persons. It will interest people with an NVQII in Health and Social Care, but it is open to anyone who meets the job criteria, enjoys learning and making the most of opportunities to develop personally and professionally.
The Trust welcomes applications from all sections of the community who fulfil the criteria for the post. We are keen to ensure that our workforce reflects the community it serves, particularly in terms of ethnicity, gender, disability and experience of mental illness.
The Hounslow team is based at Lakeside, at the back of the West Middx University Hospital site, London Road, Isleworth. The Ealing team is based at The Limes site, Merrick Road, Southall. Both teams cover their whole respective borough areas.
