Job description

Introduction

If you care for others without a second thought and are looking for a rewarding career where you can make a difference and changes lives for the better, then a Male Healthcare Assistant at The Spinney could be the right choice for you.

Whether you are looking for a new career or already work in healthcare through the NHS or private care, you’ll receive training to join the team where you will be valued and supported, with career development opportunities available.

It’s a career that you can take pride in while enjoying the satisfaction of helping people and seeing them improve. It’s what delivering great healthcare should feel like. 

What you will be doing

You will join the team that works well together to provide care to men with mental health conditions and/or personality disorders. Whether you have been a Support Worker or a Care Worker, you will utilise your experience to support people to lead a valued and fulfilled life.

It can be quite a challenging environment at times, so a positive attitude, compassion, resilience and vigilance are important. But it is hugely rewarding to see people improve; being able to do something today that they couldn’t do last week because of you.

The Elysium Wellbeing team is on hand to keep you feeling great; be it a chat, massage or group activities. Who doesn’t like a free massage at work?
There are also career development opportunities in abundance. With a huge range of courses that will see you grow and succeed. If you have the aspiration, capability and dedication, we can give you the support and opportunities to help you achieve your career goals.

You will work 12 hours days, three days a week, with the occasional night shift. Though with 4 days off to rest and catch up on life, it provides a great work/life balance.

The purpose-built medium, low secure and rehabilitation wards, as well as a psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU) are all set within an 11 acre site with extensive woodland and landscaped areas.

You will be working alongside a multidisciplinary team at The Spinney who have previously been recognised by the Association of Psychological Therapies (APT) for their ability to reinforce positive behaviour, prevention of challenging behaviour and successful interventions in a secure care setting.
