£1500 Recruitment & Retentionpayment to successful candidate Spectrum Community Health CIC is a community owned, award winning health provider. Our recent success at achieving four new contracts demonstrates our policy of innovation and continuous improvement, and is testimony to our committed and talented teams. As a Social Enterprise our profits are reinvested into our staff and services, and we benefit from being independent, large enough to provide a level of security, yet small enough to be able to make things happen. Our multi-disciplinary teams provide healthcare services to some of the most vulnerable people in our society, from diverse backgrounds, who present a full range of general, mental health and recovery concerns. An exciting opportunity has become available for a Social Care Assistant to support the social care needs of women detained at HMP Styal. You will be confident in working in a fast-paced and multi-disciplinary environment. The post holder will be responsible for providing high quality, confidential, social care duties alongside the multi-disciplinary clinical teams within the healthcare department.

The post holder will be based at HMP Styal but will be required to work flexibly across the site. The post holder will be expected to undertake mandatory training appropriate to their role and adhere to NHS and HMP policies and procedures relevant to the area they work in and demonstrate commitment to the principles of Equality & Diversity. On top of your basic salary, you will receive at least 27 days' holiday each year rising to 33 days after 10 years’ service (excluding bank holidays). You will also automatically become a member of the NHS pension scheme and will receive an excellent package of pension benefits which are one of the most generous and comprehensive in the UK. The post holder will be expected to undertake safeguarding training (Children and Adults) appropriate to their role and adhere to policies and procedures relevant to the area they work in.
