Job Advert Role Description

The Therapy Services at Kemple View aim to provide bespoke and individualised treatment pathways for male patients with complex mental health, recovery needs and risk profiles. Therapy Services include Psychology, Social Work, Occupational Therapy and education, in both our Low Secure and Rehabilitation and Recovery settings. Therapy services staff work together as part of identified Multi-Disciplinary Teams with our nursing and medical colleagues, using positive psychology approaches with patients that aim to motivate, engage, develop and practice skills to achieve life goals and promote long term change to progress through the identified care pathways. 

The opportunity has arisen for a part time Social Worker to join a motivated and experienced Social Work team within a forensic mental health environment. This role would enable the successful applicant to build on their existing skills, develop their knowledge base and work with very complex individuals with both forensic and mental health needs. This role would be suitable for a Social worker who is kind, compassionate and non judgmental, whilst also being risk aware and able to work methodically and enthusiastically as part of the Therapy Services team.
