About The Role

Full Job Description

Are you looking for an opportunity to develop your support career?

We’re looking for exceptional individuals to expand the talented ranks of our Care Team at Baldock Manor Hospital. In the role of a Senior Mental Health Support Worker, you will find yourself developing a strong and progressive position within the Nouvita network.

Your role with us is at the forefront of everything we do; from coordinating recreational groups to assisting in the preparation of assessments for current/future residents, you will be interacting with every department of the Hospital. Your primary task will be to ensure and implement the care/treatment/rehabilitation of service users by assisting our nurses and psychologists; these responsibilities include:

  • Participation in the application of care plans while ensuring interventions and observations are communicated effectively with senior members of the team.
  • Assisting in the supervision of other healthcare/support staff.
  • Maintaining a safe therapeutic environment, beneficial to the needs of residents, relatives and other carers.
  • Promoting a positive attitude toward mental health & rehabilitation.

Aside to your hands-on responsibilities, there is also a small amount of administration that you will soon be familiar with. We use a group of intuitive programmes to make your job easier when:

  • Record keeping.
  • Booking your holidays.
  • Edit/create care-plans.
  • Publish/view your hours.

As a Senior member of the support team, you will be viewed as a team leader, role model, and even a teacher. Working in tandem with your Service Lead, you will confidently support others and undertake the roles and responsibilities of Nurses when required; some roles may include:

  • Prepare reviews/assessments for service users.
  • Support the induction of new staff and supervise the work of existing staff.
  • Ensure your team remain up to date with their mandatory training (Monitor the training matrix).

Opportunities

Many senior members of the team (including managers) have started their journey as support workers with us, honing their skillset before advancing their careers and expertise. If you’re looking to begin a career in care, or further your current one, Nouvita will help you evolve and give you the tools to thrive.

Education and Training

We’re aware that many healthcare jobs require you to have specific certificates, that often come with hefty price-tags and long wait-lists. There are even unrecognised courses that do more to confuse than help; that’s why we began our own CQC-recognised training, to educate rather than obfuscate.

It’s important to remember that service users within Baldock Manor Hospital often suffer from acute mental health disorders that need specific treatment, implemented correctly. To this end, we’re proud to provide an in-house training programme of up to 11 annual classes that will prepare you for any eventuality.

During your induction into Nouvita, you will undergo a paid e-learning course, as well as a 5-day training programme (also paid) to equip you with everything you need to get started. After-which your continued development will be tailored to your, and the hospital’s needs.

Benefits

While a member of our team, we will support and guide you to become a role model to all staff within the Care Home. We believe the key to a productive workplace is a happy environment, and that starts with you. That's why we offer a package of benefits to make your time with us just that bit better.

  • Annual Leave: 28 days including bank holidays (Pro Rata)
  • Blue Light Card (High Street discounts for many large brands).
  • Access to our ‘Refer a Friend’ scheme to earn up to £1000.
  • In-house training and development.
  • Access to career progression throughout the group.
  • Employer pension contribution.
  • Fully funded DBS.
