These are two interesting and varied posts which are based in Sefton’s Community Mental Health Teams but will require the post holder to support across adult social care teams to allow social workers to be released to undertake training placements for qualification as an Approved Mental Health Professional.

The roles offer the opportunity for experienced social workers to broaden their knowledge, working with a range of adult service user groups. Teams are based across the borough in Bootle, Waterloo and Southport and in addition to two CMHTs include two Area Teams, a Reassessment Team and specialist DOLS and Safeguarding Teams.  

You will have an understanding of the Care Act (2014) and its impact on practice especially in relation to strengths based assessment and support planning. You will be familiar with safeguarding and working in accordance with the Mental Capacity Act (2005) and have a strong commitment to a style of practice which values human rights, diversity and fairness.

In return, the authority can provide a competitive salary and leave allowance, a flexible working hours scheme, regular supervision, staff benefits schemes and strong training opportunities.
