We are pleased to advertise the newly created posts which support the growth and development of the AMHP service that works across 24 hours.
While the demand for Mental Health Act assessments has increased, it is relatively small numbers compared to other Local Authorities. However, our quality of service is paramount to support the person being assessed and reaching positive outcomes. The model of working on the Isle of Wight will be to also hold a small number of Mental Health cases and contribute to the 24-hour AMHP rota.
This is an exciting time for you to join the service as we are at the start of future developments and would love you to be active with supporting the growth of the team and service we provide.
As a Local Authority we are open to supporting your learning and personal development, so you will be encouraged to share your experience and expertise as well as have the opportunity to attend national conferences and partake in partnership training.
We offer regular quality supervision and will be working a 9-day fortnight to give a balance to your work commitments and home life should you wish to opt in.
Please visit the Adult Social Care career opportunities page which holds inspiring testimonies from team members, a guide to what the Island offers as well as personal development opportunities we offer.
