Do you thrive on making a difference to the lives of others? Are you interested in working together to meet their changing needs? Rethink Mental Illness can offer exciting career opportunities for those either looking to either gain experience working with those with enduring mental health or the chance to build on your existing experience.

Our four CQC registered care homes in Warwickshire provide 24/7 support, assisting service users with activities of their choice and daily living skills.

You will be a great relationship builder willing to work directly with people who use the service and our stakeholders. You should also be enthusiastic with good communication skills, sound organisation and IT skills and the ability to keep records both accurately and concisely.
