We have an exciting opportunity for Care Co-ordinators to join our Recovery Service in Sheffield.
Thanks to a new investment into community mental health services we are looking for experienced mental health professionals to join our teams.
The Recovery Service, previously known as the Community Mental Health Team, provides health and social care to adults with complex mental health needs.
We are split into two teams, Recovery Service North, based at Northlands Community Health Centre, and Recovery Service South, who are based at the Eastglade Centre.
This is a really exciting time to be joining the Recovery Service.
We are an ambitious service with lots of developments planned over the next few years.
Our goals include achieving accreditation with the Royal College of Psychiatrists, the development of an Assertive Outreach pathway and implementing Structured Clinical Management for people with a personality disorder.
As a Care Co-ordinator you will plan a vital role in our large multi-disciplinary community team, which will continue to grow over the next few years.
Our core opening hours are between 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday and we operate a flexible approach to support community practice.

You will provide a leadership role to more junior staff and contribute to the wider multi-disciplinary team. We are dedicated to providing an extensive learning environment and you will have an opportunity to supervise and assess students whilst contributing to the learning of other students in the team.
We encourage all our staff to contribute to and engage with service development through Microsystems, reflective practice, MDT meetings and service reviews.
