Jobs in Mental Health

When a mental health condition has a long-term effect on day-to-day activities it is considered a disability - so it’s perhaps no surprise that it is currently the largest form of disability in the UK. It’s a diverse and far-reaching sector, insofar as those you are supporting could be suffering from a number of different illnesses; from anxiety and depression, addiction, and eating disorders; to schizophrenia, bipolar, and PTSD – and many, many more. Often referred to as an ‘invisible illness’, mental health is finally getting the recognition it deserves – but it’s only with the support from intuitive, like-minded individuals (like you!) that we can actually make a difference in the world.

Some of the roles we recruit for include:

  • Registered Mental Health Nurses
  • Support Workers
  • Senior Nurses
  • Team Leaders
  • Administration and Ancillary Staff
  • Home Managers
  • Managers of all levels
