BHT is looking for a Project Worker to join the experienced team at the Archway Project.
Archway is a recovery-focused mental health service composed of two residential properties in Hove.
The service adopts a person-centred and holistic approach to support, with an emphasis on client involvement and co-production.
Psychologically Informed Practices and a Trauma Informed Approach are applied to coach residents toward acquiring the requisite skills to achieve their aspirations and live fulfilling lives.
The Archway service aims to enable clients to achieve greater resilience, confidence and independence and move-on to less-supported accommodation within a two-year timeframe. At the same time, we work alongside clients to identify wellness strategies to achieve and maintain wellbeing, whilst minimising hospital admissions where possible.
Both properties are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and have ‘Outstanding’ ratings.
Applicants must have experience of working with those considered to have complex support needs and have the skills to engage, motivate and build trusting professional relationships with people.
Applicants should also be committed to safeguarding and promoting the rights and welfare of vulnerable adults.
This role involves working on a 2-week rolling rota pattern (comprised of 9-5pm / 12-8pm / 4-10pm sleep-in 8-10am) across 14 days, including alternate weekends.
BHT is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from anyone with the requisite skills and experience. Those with lived experience of mental health are of course welcome to apply; Archway is an inclusive and supportive team.
