Current Vacancies:

Two new vacancies:

We are recruiting for two posts in our Team Around the Practice (TAP) social prescribing service.  We work in a partnership which is led by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust.  The project provides support within GP surgeries in Camden offering psychotherapy and social prescribing to people experiencing a range of mental health issues.  The service model encourages collaborative working with GPs to ensure that service users’ needs are supported in a co-ordinated way.  A second element of the service is an horticultural project based at Kentish Town City Farm.

Both posts are temporary until April 2018 but with a possibility of extension.

TAP Social Prescribing Senior Mental Health Link Worker – £27,555 (inclusive of the Inner London Weighting Allowance) for 35 hours per week, plus a non-contributory pension.  

The Senior Link Worker will lead a small team of Link Workers to deliver an innovative Social Prescribing project in Camden.  It enables service users to identify their needs and goals and to find community resources, with individual support provided by Link Workers across six sessions.  As the senior member of the team, you will manage two link workers as well as having your own client caseload.  You  will also oversee the work of a Community Development Worker who has a particular remit for developing groups for Bangladeshi women and an horticultural project.  You will be working closely with colleagues from the Tavistock and Portman as one integrated team and will receive supervisory input from Senior Clinicians, as well as working within a shared administrative hub at the Tavistock.

We’re looking for a highly committed and motivated individual with excellent communication skills and an ability to work effectively in partnership to deliver a high achieving service.
