Advanced Social Worker

We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) to join the Halton Mental Health Social Work Team/AMHP daytime service.

The AMHP service is part of the Mental Health Social Work Service. You will be expected to participate on the daytime AMHP rota as well as providing professional support to a caseload of individuals requiring support in accordance with the Care Act.  This role is diverse and challenging at times because it offers an opportunity to support people when they are potentially at their most vulnerable.

As an AMHP you will be provided with ongoing AMHP training via the Cheshire Training Partnership and personal supervision.  We have an established AMHP Forum that meets monthly and gives AMHP’s the opportunity to meet with their peers to enhance practice, develop and share learning and raise any topics for professional practice/concern with senior management.

The successful applicant will role model excellent standards of practice, knowledge and people skills. You will work closely with the other members of Mental Health/Social Care Services in offering the highest standards of care to the population we support.

37 hours 5 days a week Monday –Friday
