We are looking for hard-working, innovative and caring individuals who are able to provide focus and creativity to our patients especially through challenging times.

We work in a responsive way to provide stability in a person’s life and help them to develop a meaningful occupation alongside managing the symptoms of their mental illness.

The successful candidates will have a proven ability to provide comprehensive assessments, formulation and specialist treatments for adults of working age with SMI.

We encourage you to contact us to arrange an informal visit, come and meet the team and ask us any questions about the role or Dorset. Flexible working will be considered.
