Bank - Omnia Wake In Nights

The Company

At Norwich and Central Norfolk Mind, we work hard to help people recover from mental health problems and develop resilience for the future. We are a leading mental health charity in Norwich and central Norfolk, providing services which make a real difference to people’s lives. We are a flexible and supportive employer providing excellent supervision and a good training package.

Omnia

A 24-hour staffed residential psycho-social rehabilitation programme for people with a psychiatric disability.  This service has 14 beds and an on-site client programme that emphasises holism, wellbeing and strategies for living.

The Role

This is a rewarding role and ideally suited for anyone looking to work night. By the very nature of poor mental health, an individual’s difficulties can often intensify in the darker hours and at times when a person feels more isolated and alone.

Experience of working in a mental health setting is advantageous, however all successful applicants will be provided with full training and regular supervision.

Our vision is of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all and one that treats people with experience of mental distress fairly, positively and with respect.

20% enhancement is paid for unsocial hours worked between 22:00 – 07:00
