Fulfilling Lives: Multiple and Complex Needs South East Project
Fixed term contract until October 2016, secondments welcome
One of the key purposes of this project is to provide personalised and targeted interventions. Working hours will therefore be highly flexible to best meet needs of service users.
The Big Lottery funded Fulfilling Lives South East Project is an exciting 8 year initiative which aims to bring about lasting change and improvements in how services work for people with multiple and complex needs.
This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and driven individual to work with some of the most complex and disengaged individuals identified as having multiple and complex needs whose needs are either not being met by existing services or who are not accessing existing services with the aim of providing a transition into mainstream services.
The Specialist Worker, Dual Diagnosis, will be embedded within the Hastings delivery team based in Seaview. The post holder will support a small caseload of clients with multiple and complex needs and report to the Area Lead for the Hastings Fulfilling Lives team. Off-line professional supervision will be provided as appropriate.
The post holder will need to evidence experience of working in the field of multiple and complex needs including homelessness, substance misuse, mental health or offending, alongside a professional background: Ideally an experienced social worker, nurse or possessing extensive specialist experience in a relevant field.
It would be advantageous to have experience of working in a community mental health or treatment setting and knowledge of local mental health and substance misuse treatment pathways as well as an understanding of and commitment to current safeguarding practice.
We are looking for emotional resilience, a commitment to assertive practice and a solution focussed, practical approach to overcoming barriers to services and engagement.
Potential applicants are encouraged to phone Mike Cornish on 01424 717981 for an informal discussion about the role.
