Job description

With your background in housing, social care and ‘high risk’ clients, you really understand the difference it can make when frontline staff are supported to improve practice. Well, we can put you in a position to do just that. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Senior Practitioner.

Right now, we’re looking for someone like you to join our 24 hour supported housing service in North Shields. Our aim is to help individuals with Personality Disorders and Difficulties on their recovery journey so they’re able to move on to more independent living within the community.

 With a wide range of skills and backgrounds, our teams take a creative approach to their work and are an integral part to the recovery journey of those who use our services. That’s where you come in. As a Senior Practitioner in Pele Tower you’ll be focused on practice, but of course your overriding objective will be to provide high quality support to service users, in line with service models and policy. Carrying a caseload of complex cases, you’ll provide strong and effective clinical leadership in formulating support plans  and guiding the work of Recovery  Workers, as well playing a key role in their training and development. You’ll also support the management of the risk load within your service, to ensure safe working practices and individual risk management plans are in place and appropriate support available.  You will play a key role in the service maintaining its Quality Assurance Accreditation with the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Community of Communities.  You will work with our external provider to plan and evaluate Team Practice Supervision.  You may also have the opportunity to work with our Learning and Development Team to develop and facilitate training on working with people with Personality Difficulties and Disorders.

We expect you to have your QCF in Health and Social Care – ideally level 3 or equivalent – or to be happy to train towards it. Certainly, your substantial experience within the housing and social care sector with people with Personality Difficulties and Disorders will have given you a significant understanding of mental health issues, recovery and coproduction, and the intricacies of managing resources effectively. You should also be experienced in carrying out investigations and writing reports and recommendations. On a personal level, you’re solution focused and outcome driven, able both to lead from the front and to delegate when appropriate, and flexible enough to participate in on-call arrangements.

So are you ready to help us change mental health services for the better? Apply now via our website.

Richmond Fellowship is part of Recovery Focus, a national group of charities highly experienced in providing specialist support services to individuals and families living with the effects of mental ill health, drug and alcohol use, gambling and domestic violence. We know that recovery can look and feel very different to each and every one of us. But we also know that if we provide the right support, at the right time, we can inspire recovery nationwide and that recovery is possible for everyone.
