Community Rehab Unit

Located in the heart of London, including vibrant Camden Town and the newly developed King’s Cross and St. Pancras areas, Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust provides a fantastic place to work and develop your career in mental health care.

With services situated throughout Camden and Islington our multidisciplinary teams assess and treat the most vulnerable members of the communities we serve. Working in the thick of it our employees possess a “can do attitude”, meeting the challenges of this specialist branch of health care with positivity and professionalism.

We are looking for compassionate and committed Activity Coordinator/ House Keeper to join the Recovery and Rehabilitation division in the Trust.

Providing high quality mental health care to people with psychotic illnesses, the division’s goal is to support recovery, to promote mental and physical wellbeing and optimise independence and social inclusion.

The successful candidate will assist qualified staff to administer high quality patient care. They will support the work of the named primary nurse and, under their guidance, fully participate in the care and therapy offered on the ward and the promotion of person centred care.

If you have previous experience of working within a health care setting; are genuinely interested in issues involving clients with mental health problems; and are able to work compassionately and sensitively with vulnerable clients we want to hear from you.
