Due to a significant increase in demand for MHA assessments we are looking to recruit relief AMHPs to cover shifts on the Central AMHP Team daytime rota.  This opportunity is open to any AMHP willing to undertake a full range of MHA assessments, anywhere in Derbyshire, working at grade 11.  The plan is to increase capacity on the daytime rota by 1 relief AMHP each day Mon-Fri from the pool over a 6 month period.  

Anyone interested needs to be aware that this opportunity must be in addition to their existing duties and will therefore need to fit in with their current rota commitments.  Whilst working in this role, support will be provided by colleagues within the Central AMHP team.   

We welcome interest from those AMHPs who feel this opportunity might provide the experience to undertake MHA assessments they don’t ordinarily undertake. 

Please contact Jacky direct if you have any queries, including any support you might need to be able to undertake this role  – 07760 551283 

Due to this post having access to children and/or vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided. Click here to see our policy on criminal background checks.

The job may require unsocial hours working including weekends and Bank Holidays. Payment arrangements will be detailed in any contract offer made.

Saturday and Sunday hours will be paid at plain time where it is part of your normal working pattern unless it is between 7pm and 7am, where enhanced rates of pay apply. Enhanced pay rates are paid for Bank Holiday working.
