Bank Cover Worker at BHT

BHT is looking for Bank Cover Workers to join the team at the Archway service, which is a CQC registered care provider for those with enduring and complex mental health needs. Archway is comprised of two residential properties (a 5 bed house and a 9 bed house) in Brighton and Hove.

Our Clients:

• We house and provide support to adults (18+) who have enduring and complex mental health care & support needs, who have had funding agreed by Adult Social Care.

• Our clients will often have experienced hospital admissions under Section according to the Mental Health Act and will join our service upon discharge.

• Our clients will have been assessed as requiring a 24-hour staffing provision, with sleeping nights between 10pm and 8am.

• When assessing our clients, we look for motivation to engage with a recovery focussed support plan to enable them to move on to more independent living in the future.
Our Approach:

• We adopt a person-centred and holistic approach to support; we want to get to know the individual and help them to feel empowered and able to lead on their own recovery with more self-awareness and confidence.

• We work to empower people through life skills development and goal-focused support planning so that our clients can maintain their accommodation and manage their mental health and wellbeing.

• We focus on client involvement and co-production to ensure those living in our service have a say in our service.

• We work in a psychologically informed way by applying our knowledge, skills and reflections to build a strong and supportive team and to provide compassionate care and support to our clients.

Our Aims:

• To take therapeutic approaches to build resilience and coping strategies to prevent hospital admission/re-admission.

• To enable our clients to achieve greater independence and move-on to less-supported accommodation within a two-year timeframe.

• To support our clients to develop ways of living alongside their mental health diagnosis and to build a range of individualised coping skills.

Applicants should:

• Have experience of working within care & support.

• Demonstrate an understanding of how to form trusting and professional relationships with clients.

• Place value in person-centred support.

• Be able to communicate effectively with a range of people.

• Have a supportive and empathic nature.
