Contract Type: Casual
We are looking for Approved Mental Health Professionals
who are approved by a Local Authority or willing to work to be approved by the
Isle of Wight Council to support the AMHP Service.
On the island we are small service, but one that
continues to increase in the demand for Mental Health Act assessments.
If you meet the above criteria, then we would like you to
work on the casual bank list. This post
is zero hours and is convenient for AMHPs who work for another Authority but
would like some experience working on an island; and for AMHPs that have not
practiced for a while but would be willing to undertake the training to become
approved by the Isle of Wight Council.
The ethos of the post is to call upon you to cover AMHP
shifts in case of vacancies or sickness.
These shifts will cover 24 hrs so may be evening shifts or weekends
during the day.
We will provide you with a good induction to the systems
and resources of the island before you will be expected to work on your
own. During these times you will have
access to an AMHP manager to discuss any areas of practice concerns.
