The Role

Together is an amazing place to work. And it’s not just because we’re one of the UK’s oldest and most respected mental health charities. It’s because we put the people who use our services at the heart of everything we do – supporting and enabling them to take control of their lives and make a positive contribution to the community.

The Forensic Mental Health Practitioner service (FMHP) forms part of Together’s Criminal Justice Directorate. You’ll be a highly motivated and independent thinker with a professional qualification in a related area (e.g. Mental Health Nurse, IAPT Practitioner, Occupational Therapist, Chartered Psychologist) and / or a relevant academic qualification (MSc level or equivalent).

Multiple Forensic Mental Health Practitioner roles are or will become available in the near future across the entirety of Together’s Criminal Justice Directorate.   These roles require the successful individual to work in Metropolitan Police Custody Suites, Magistrates Courts, or within Probation/Community Rehabilitation Company offices within London.

This is an excellent opportunity to make a significant contribution to the development of the service and to build on your previous experience and skills in mental health.

The right candidates will possess demonstrable evidence of their ability to work within the role as a Forensic Mental Health Practitioner.

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 22nd August.

We have a firm commitment to encouraging fairness and diversity in our work force and we welcome applications from disabled people and those from BME backgrounds.
