ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Support Worker at a Barchester independent mental health hospital, you’ll use your intuition and empathy to help our patients get the most out of life. You’ll work as part of a multidisciplinary team to support patients with complex and sometimes challenging behaviours. You can expect to make a big difference to the lives of the patients we care for and support, becoming part of their day-to-day lives and ensuring they are always treated with dignity and respect.

You should also enjoy being part of a friendly, sociable team that has close links to the local community.

• Rewarding Excellence bonus, meaning you will be financially rewarded by up to £500* for a Good or Outstanding CQC inspection
