They say a change is as good as a rest! If you have been thinking about making a change then consider joining our service!
We have an amazing opportunity for someone experienced within the mental health field to join our CAFS front door services. We are in the process of changing things up a bit and in doing so are trying to make sure the roles in this part of our service are meeting the needs of our client group and their families whilst also providing a professional challenge and some diversity. To this end we have a role which will assist with triaging referrals and duty/crisis tasks, complete Choice appointments and also provide short term intervention for young people who have presented in distress/crisis and need some brief assistance in getting back onto their once healthy path.
We have a genuinely wonderful team here at CAFS and access to some great training opportunities. The key thing for us is that we need someone experienced within this role, preferably a CAMHS background but if you think you have transferable skills from the adult field and are willing to be involved in further training/up-skilling then please think seriously about applying.
If we have peaked your interest and are a qualified registered nurse with a current APC or a qualified social worker, then ring me today for a chat about your possible future with us!

Call 027 5468828 now and you will be speaking to me, Bev, Clinical Manager CAF. I look forward to hearing from you.
