Hours: 40 hours per week (shift work, inc. nights)
Starting Salary: £21,216 per annum
Benefits: 33 days’ annual leave, pension, life assurance, an employee assistance programme, a comprehensive training programme

Company Profile:

Community Housing and Therapy (CHT) is a leading provider of Psychologically Informed Recovery Communities - 'where relationships are the treatment'.  CHT works with adults and young people who have challenging and complex presentations, many of whom have diagnoses of personality disorders or psychoses, and who have experienced negative childhood experiences or trauma, within a psycho-developmental framework in order to create an environment where the individual needs are met to enhance development, health and wellbeing, with the aim of enabling them to lead successful and productive lives.

We offer a good working environment as part of a small organisation that is passionate about providing high quality developmental support to young persons and adults experiencing mental distress and complex psychosocial disorders. We have a strong sense of values, a clear treatment and support model based on relational psychology, client participation and recovery, a strong training programme and ethos, and a highly supportive clinical and management framework.


About the role:

 
CHT is looking for a dynamic and committed Recovery Practitioner to join an exciting new Young Persons’ residential service.  The role requires someone who is truly passionate about working with young people with a range of difficulties, including emotional, behavioural, and/or a history of mental health issues.

Youth Practitioners will be required to work shifts (including rotating night shifts), and take part in CHT’s psychologically informed care and support training programme.


About you:

You will be a friendly and approachable person with a pro-active approach to the work.  You will be someone who understands what it involves to become an attachment figure to the young people - someone who understands boundaries but never forgets the need to be emotionally available and understands where the young people are coming from. A strong candidate will have some understanding of the psychodynamic processes involved in interpersonal relationships which are keys aspects of our therapeutic approach.

You will have the resilience to work with young people, many of whom have experienced significant trauma and exhibit challenging behaviours, and to use your relational skills to provide a calm and containing environment.

This is a full-time position of 40 hours per week on a shift rota that includes some nights and weekends.
