NEW BUSINESS – NEW SERVICES – NEW JOBS IN LINCOLNSHIRE!!

Lincolnshire is leading the way with mental health transformation projects

Do you want to be part of changing mental health for the future? Improving things for the next generation and influencing the future. We have a number of exciting new opportunities for clinical and non-clinical staff.

Excellent, well trained and motivated staff are what make the Trust as successful as we are.

We employ over 2200 staff in a variety of roles and are proud that in the past two years we have been rated by our own staff as one of the best mental health trusts in England; achieving the second best mental health trust nationally in 2018 staff survey. We firmly believe that the key to high quality patient care is a contented workforce and this is reflected in the Care Quality Commission rating us as ‘outstanding’ for well led and ‘good’ overall.

As a Trust we believe that having a diverse workforce and allowing people to be themselves is essential to good employment, we are openly supportive and encourage difference. We have three active staff network groups for Black Asian Minority Ethnics (BAME), Lesbian Gay Bi-Sexual Transgender (LGBT+) and staff with Mental and Physical Lived Experience (MAPLE). This has resulted in annual staff conferences and some great national accolades, such as, the Trust being included in the Top 100 organisations in the country within the Stonewall Index.


An opportunity has arisen for a qualified Mental Health Nurse, Social Worker, or Occupational Therapist to join the Lincoln Crisis and Home Treatment Team.

The team provide a swift response to people who are in acute phase of mental illness which involves both assessment and treatment. The team currently run the Crisis Vehicular Response Service, which provides an urgent response to referrals. We also work in partnership with Lincolnshire Police to have a Mental Health Professional based in the Police Force Control Room

You will need to demonstrate a commitment to providing a high quality standard of care, excellent communication, interpersonal and assessment skills and a positive attitude towards change with an ability to contribute to the evolving nature of our service. You will receive regular supervision as well as being expected to provide leadership and supervision. You will be expected to work shifts including nights.

To be successful in this role, we want to hear from Practitioners who really want to ‘make a difference’, with the Trust values at the core of patient care and who have previous experience of working with acute mental illness, or are seeking to develop a career within acute care.

You will be joining a forward thinking Trust, where, at our most recent CQC inspection we were rated overall as ‘Good’ and given ‘outstanding’ for well led.
Lincolnshire is a large county which can offer you whatever you are looking for, in both your personal or your professional life. The county has vibrant towns and the City of Lincoln at its core, as well as idyllic rural villages, offering a high quality of life with affordable living, excellent education and social life facilities – sound interesting?

In partnership with staff, volunteers, patients and carers we have developed our values, behaviours and culture over the past three years; and we live by them. Our leaders are compassionate, supportive and avoid blame. We look at solution focused outcomes, working on a theme of continuous improvement, which benefits the Trust, its employees and of course our patients and services users.

We also offer great new rewards and benefits to staff as you will see, so if you are not already part of our team why not come and join us?

We offer 24 hour services within our Inpatient, Crisis and SPA teams, if you are successfully appointed to posts in these areas or others that might have specified, you will be required to work unsociable hours and shift patterns.
