Andover Mind is one of the leading mental health providers in Hampshire and we are proud to announce a new service, launching August 2021.
The need for a Safe Haven to cover the Andover and Basingstoke area has been identified. Working with our NHS Partners we will be launching this exciting new venture in August 2021.
Our Safe Haven service supports those in mental health crisis in Basingstoke and mid Hampshire.
This service will be covered 7 evenings a week from 5.30pm to 10.30pm, 365 days a year. It will initially be based at our current well-being facility in Basingstoke until an alternative permanent facility in Basingstoke is found.
We are therefore looking to recruit amazing, committed professional staff to ensure our new service runs efficiently and maintains the level of care and support currently being provided by Andover Mind.
The role of Safe Haven Practitioner is therefore pivotal, working as part of the Safe Haven team alongside other members of staff.
Using your knowledge of working within the mental health sector, previous mental health experience and understanding of the implications of individuals experiencing a crisis, you will help people to focus on achievable goals using a strengths based approach whilst remaining calm and professional in any stressful or challenging situation.
We offer ongoing training and development to all staff and 27 days holiday entitlement rising to 30 days after 3 full years service plus bank holidays.
Location: Vyne Road, Basingstoke
Hours: To be discussed at interview
Salary: £11.28 per hour + £3.38 Shift Allowance
Closing Date: 26 May 2021
