Based in Cambridge
Starting Salary: £23,141.00 per annum

Sanctuary Plus is a complimentary pilot service to the Sanctuary, which is being extended for a further 12 months. Due to additional funding we have an exciting opportunity to enhance both services.

We are seeking an experienced individual who is able to work 2:30pm to 11.00pm during the week. During the day time you will be providing follow-up support via telephone to individuals who have accessed support from our Sanctuary. From 6.00pm you will be supporting the main Sanctuary service in co-ordinating referrals as well as providing telephone support to individuals who are unable to access the service.

As this role is an extension to the initial pilot, it will develop throughout the 12 months. Therefore we are looking for a dynamic individual who is: organised, efficient, calm under pressure and who can use their own initiative in an evolving service pilot.

This role forms part of the award winning work implemented by the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Crisis Care Concordat and the Urgent & Emergency Care Vanguard Project.
