This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and dynamic registered professional to join the STEP Team. The post is open to Qualified Nurses, Occupational Therapists and Social Workers. This is a developmental post which is designed for people thinking about making the transition to community work.

We are part of the Early Intervention in Psychosis Care Pathway for the Psychosis Clinical Academic Group (CAG); part of the Kings Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre. The CAG comprises one of the largest groups in the world of clinicians and academics working with people with psychosis. Its aim is to improve and develop best practice for this client group.

The STEP Team is a borough wide community service working in Southwark with people experiencing psychosis for the first time. The team uses well researched Early Intervention strategies and works intensively with service users and carers for up to three years, to promote engagement with the team and with treatment to facilitate social inclusion and recovery.

The successful candidates will be experienced registered professionals who are able to demonstrate a specific interest in working with people with developing psychosis. They will be enthusiastic about this client group, and committed to working within the recovery approach. We have recently attracted significant inward investment to expand our service as a response to new government guidelines for Early Intervention in Psychosis. 

This is an exciting time to be working in this field which is undergoing a period of rapid growth and development. We can offer you a variety of rewarding challenges, a robust supervision system, continued training and development and the opportunity to work within a friendly and supportive team.
