An opportunity has arisen for an Approved Mental Health Professional to work as part of a mental health social work team, providing services to individuals who experience mental illness and may have complex, multiple needs.

This is a friendly and supportive team committed to person centred practice which helps promote independence, wellbeing and choice. The role includes carrying out assessments under the Mental Health Act 1983 (as amended 2007) on a rota basis. You will also undertake duties under the Care Act (2014) including Care Act assessments and Section 42 enquiries and manage a reduced caseload. The role involves close working with mental health colleagues within a multi-disciplinary framework.

You must have a relevant Social Work qualification such as a Degree in Social Work, DipSW, CQSW, or CSS, or equivalent, an Approved Mental Health Professional qualification and Social Work England registration. Professional support, supervision and appraisal will be provided by the Team Manager of the Community Mental Health Team and the AMHP lead.

To arrange an informal discussion, please contact Lisa Scorfield, Team Manager, by email at lisa.scorfield@newcastle.gov.uk
