Crisis Support Worker / Connect Shift Coordinator (Bank)

Bank Staff cover the absence of contracted staff.  Shifts are 5.30pm-2.30am.

£12.56 per hour plus 7.7% in lieu of holiday pay.

We wish to recruit people with personal experience of mental distress and substantial experience of working with people with mental health problems, including working with BME and LGBT communities and with people at risk of suicide and self harm.  An understanding of complex psychological trauma is essential to our work. Excellent support and supervision is provided.
