Sussex Oakleaf provides a range of support services to people with mental health needs, those with a personality disorder and individuals at risk of homelessness.

Our vision is for a world where people with mental illness and mental health issues are inspired and supported to fulfil their potential and live their lives as independently as possible.

The Community Recovery Support Service provides individual packages of support to people experiencing severe and enduring mental health needs and who have local authority funding or access to private funds.

We deliver a person-centred service to clients in their own homes and in the community. We support clients to improve their physical health and their emotional wellbeing. This is a varied and challenging role but also incredibly rewarding. This is an opportunity to make a real positive impact to people’s lives for the better.
We are looking for a highly motivated individual to join our expanding team to work primarily in the Brighton & Hove area but will be expected occasionally to work in the Mid-Sussex area.

Experience in a similar role is desirable but not essential as full training is provided. While experience is great we are happy to hear from people with life experience or those who can take a positive approach to this role. There is NO personal care required in this role.

In return for the amazing work our staff do we offer:

• Extensive induction training
• Competitive rates of pay
• Flexible working options
• Comprehensive personal and professional development
• Generous annual leave entitlement (35 days including Bank Holidays)
• Employee Assistance Programme e.g. access to free counselling services
• Support from a fantastic management team
