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.

Our Forensic Mental Health Practitioner (FMHP) Service works to identify and support service users in contact with the criminal justice system who have mental health and other complex needs. You will be required to work with the National Probation Service working in close collaboration with Offender Managers and other health and social care providers.

You will have a mental health related professional qualification (BABCP, PWP, Chartered Psychologist) and/or a relevant academic qualification (MSc level or equivalent).

As an FMHP you will be required to have proven practical experience in completing holistic psychological assessments, risk management plans and evidence based psychological intervention (such as CBT).

This role will specifically work with female service users and gangs (male and female) across multiple community Probation sites pan London. You will be expected to understand the barriers that these groups will encounter, and have knowledge on how to work with effectively these service users.

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 interviews for this post will be held on 8th May 2017.

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.
