There are Social Workers/AMHPs working across the multidisciplinary team which includes CPNs, Doctors, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists and Support Workers to promote the best outcomes for service users and carers.

Knowledge and experience of working with service users and their carers who experience mental health care and support needs would be key to this role, as would working with other agencies that provide voluntary services in the Cambridgeshire area.

We are currently interviewing virtually using Microsoft Teams. This is a rolling campaign and candidates will be progressed shortly after they apply. The opportunity will be filled as soon as we identify a suitable candidate, which may be before the closing date. So please don't hesitate, we want to speak to you now!
