An exciting opportunity has arisen for motivated people to join Imagines’ Specialist Service portfolio. Working as part of a team supporting women who have been discharged from secure services and have severe and enduring mental health diagnoses; these positions provide specialist input to empower women to continue on their journey to independence and support them to achieve their full potential. The service delivered is a psychologically informed and therapeutically driven environment that puts women at the heart of their own recovery.

The ideal candidate will have experience of women’s support, personality disorder, forensic or mental health services and a willingness to engage with the extensive training programme provided.

You will work in partnership with the Service Managers, using a hope and recovery model. The Senior Mental Health Recovery Practitioner will provide informal leadership, coaching and support to less experienced team members. A minimum qualification of NVQ level 3 in Health & Social Care is essential. Experience with working with women in a supported housing or community health setting is desirable.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with a positive mind-set to recovery and inclusion who is looking for an opportunity to be part of a team committed to outstanding person centred delivery. In return Imagine offer development opportunities across the UK, exposure to well-coordinated multi-disciplinary team working (including our collaborative team approach with CPNs and Psychiatrists) and the opportunity to work in a well resourced, well respected supportive team environment.
