About Us:

Hackney is one of Britain’s most exciting and fastest-changing boroughs. We have changed the reputation, not just of the Council, but of Hackney itself. The challenges that have arisen over the last two years have intensified the need for action and we are determined to rebuild Hackney for, and with, our diverse communities.

The Community Mental Health Care for Older People Team and Diagnostic Memory Clinic provides person and family-centred care for older people aged 65 years and over with complex and severe functional mental illness (including schizophrenia, Bipolar affective disorder, Emotional Unstable Personality disorder, depression, anxiety) and organic illness - Dementia living in City and Hackney area of London.

This role requires extensive experience within a mental health setting combined with experience of working as part of a multi-disciplinary team. Experience of making full psycho-social assessments and writing reports is essential.

For this role, you will be Social Work England registered and have a CQSW/DIPSW and AMHP qualification or equivalent. Evidence of continual professional development is also key to this role.

Please note, an Enhanced DBS is required.

We are also working towards our vision, which is to be a place for everyone; where residents and staff can be proud; a place that celebrates diversity and where everyone can feel valued, included and involved. In order to achieve this, we look for people who are: Proud; Ambitious; Pioneering; Open; Proactive; Inclusive.

Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status. We also recognise that people can be disadvantaged by their social and economic circumstances, so we will also work to eliminate discrimination and disadvantage caused by social class. We also welcome those interested in flexible working. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people, as this group is currently under represented in our workforce.

The Council has a dedicated employment support service (Hackney Works), which offers Hackney residents guidance in relation to applying for jobs. If you are thinking about applying for a job, please contact the Hackney Works team to find out what support is available: hackneyworks@hackney.gov.uk
