East London NHS Foundation Trust provides a comprehensive mental health service to people from a diverse range of cultures and ethnic groups covering the City of London, Hackney, Newham and Tower Hamlets. Our aim is to provide the very highest standards of care based on strong partnerships with Social Services and Primary Care Trusts.

Our Adult Community Mental Health Teams provide high quality assessment and treatment of people with severe and enduring mental health problems, in partnership with service users, carers, local GPs, social care colleagues and voluntary organisations.

As Operational Lead, you will form part of a small team of senior staff who oversee the initial assessment and triage of new referrals, ensuring that appropriate recommendations are made for the management of each case before it is passed to a more junior member of staff.

The Operational Lead is accountable to the Community Services Manager who will provide the Operational Lead with professional supervision and line management. The Operational lead works with Psychiatry and Psychology in the team to provide a consistent, high quality service which is recovery focused, and sensitive to the needs of a diverse community. All are responsible for ensuring service delivery is of a consistently high standard and assisting the team in meeting these standards.

If you are an Approved Mental Health Professional, you will be expected to act as a senior AMHP, supervising the work of AMHP’s via a management rota, offering support and advice and ensuring high practice standards are maintained and the legal frameworks are adhered to.

This opportunity will benefit an enthusiastic and motivated practitioner who is looking to develop their management experience.  The successful candidate will provide an important management and leadership role in this service.

This is a full time position, however, a job share can be considered.

Hackney is one of the UK’s highest performing local authorities, serving one of London’s best places to live and work. We have achieved a huge amount: our services, our schools, our public spaces are all amongst the very best. We have changed the reputation, not just of the Council, but of Hackney itself. Bringing jobs and investment into the borough, securing the legacy from the 2012 Games, and making this a place of which we can all be proud.

We are also working towards our vision, which is to be a place for everyone; where residents and staff can be proud; a place that celebrates diversity and where everyone can feel valued, included and involved. In order to achieve this, we look for people who are: Proud; Ambitious; Pioneering; Open; Proactive; Inclusive.

Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status. We also recognise that people can be disadvantaged by their social and economic circumstances, so we will also work to eliminate discrimination and disadvantage caused by social class. We also welcome those interested in flexible working. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people, as this group is currently under represented in our workforce.
