We are leading the way in implementing new ways of working in personalisation, and a recovery-focused approach. Our goal is for customers to be able to make informed choices about the services they use, be more in control of their care, and to become active citizens within their community.

Mental Health services are delivered through the integrated partnership of Surrey County Council and Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

You will be responsible for undertaking statutory duties and be part of a rota for the Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) service. We will offer clear professional leadership and great opportunities to develop your career. You will be supported to offer supervision, training and professional development of staff, students and volunteers, and be responsible for your own personal training in order to maintain up-to-date knowledge of mental health issues.

To join us, you should have a Professional Qualification in Social Work, and Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) status and post qualifying experience that should include direct work with those who have mental health needs.
