Bank Recovery Worker - Alfred Minto House
Alfred Minto House is a well-established specialist recovery focused residential service that works with men with mental health needs and forensic histories. We aim to assist people who use our service in making the transition from hospital and secure settings, to more independent living in the community and work closely with other agencies to ensure that appropriate care and risk management plans are delivered.
Join our team and you will be responsible for supporting project workers with their caseload, assisting with risk assessments, administering medicine and assisting in the care and support planning process. In a role where no two days are the same, you will engage with our clients through group work and activities, providing individual support and enabling them to make informed choices about their future.
It is a bank contract and shift patterns include mornings, afternoons, weekends, bank holidays and sleep-ins.
The Ideal Candidate
You’ll need previous knowledge of using a person centred approach in a mental health setting and an understanding of the complex needs of our clients. Experience of working with individuals who have forensic histories would be an advantage. An effective team player, you will possess good communication skills, a flexible approach, a positive attitude and be able to adapt in a changeable environment.
As a leading health and social care provider with more than 300 locations across England, we take real pride in the services we offer.
Across the varied regions, sectors and settings we operate within, our organisation is held together by a shared vision – and our people are connected by the same values. These include belief in potential, confidence in communication, embracing positive change and always treating each other as individuals.
We run all of our services on a not-for-profit basis; instead, we invest every penny back into our services and people. We never stop believing in change for the better, and we work constantly to improve the lives of the people we support.
