We are seeking full-time Approved Mental Health Professionals (AMHPs) to work in our Out of Hours Service; two posts are permanent and four are fixed-term for a 2 year period.

This is a great opportunity if you wish to contribute to developing a service that continues to adapt to meet our core business.

As an experienced and qualified AMHP you will have sound knowledge of the Mental Health Act 1983 (2007) and demonstrate in practice the ability to assess risks to clients, and manage this accordingly.

You will need good IT and communication skills, as well as being able to communicate effectively with individuals and agencies whilst developing effective partnership working.

We are looking for AMHPs that can work effectively within a team setting as well as make independent decisions.

You will receive regular supervision and have access to on call consultation, if required.

You maybe required to work outside of Hampshire to complete Mental Health Act assessments so it is important you are able to meet the travel requirements of this role.

If you feel you have all of the above requirements and wish to work within a positive forward thinking team, then we would like to hear from you. 

Please note, working hours will vary due to shift patterns – further information will be provided at the interview stage.
