Job Introduction

Everyone’s Turning Point is unique. It’s the moment when they realise they’ve made a small, but important, step forward. Very often, that small step is the start of something bigger, but only when the right support, advice and services are in place. That’s where you come in. You’ll make a real difference to their lives as you develop the personal, flexible and recovery-focused support plans they need to help turn things around. Passionate about people, you’ll support them to take control, improve their quality of life and face the future with confidence.

We are looking for a dedicated, passionate and skilled Project Worker 1 to join our new team at Beach House. The service provides high support housing to service users with enduring mental health backgrounds. The service consists of 8 flats and offers a full recovery and rehabilitation package to our service users.

Main Responsibilities

You will provide recovery focused support to service users in accordance with their support plans. You will have well-honed skills in positive communication, engagement, and will be able to demonstrate unconditional positive regard for service users.

You will have the maturity to work within a positive framework to support clients. You will have the ability to deliver services and interventions in a person centred, non-judgmental manner, and will inspire those whom you work with and manage to do the same.

Your typical duties will include:

– providing support and guidance to service users and staff
– administering medication and monitoring of medication procedures
– providing written reports to professionals and other organisations
– daily record keeping and attendance management
– escorting service users to appointments or meetings
– upholding the cleanliness of the service to adhere to infection prevention control measures

You will be required to work in a flexible manner on a roster basis including office hours, evenings, some weekends and sleep-ins.

The Ideal Candidate

Previous experience in the mental health sector is essential as is a genuine desire to support individuals in their recovery and a can-do attitude.

We need compassionate, proactive and professional individuals who are highly motivated, hardworking and keen to support service users with mental health and complex care needs.

We value the personal skills and interests you can bring to the role and to the lives of the service users we support, such as: sports, arts and crafts, music and cooking to name but a few. Being a good communicator is essential, to be able to get on with people of all ages and from all backgrounds, and you will also be liaising with other professionals.

About us
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.
