It will enhance and protect the health and wellbeing of the population of Luton and improve the health of the poorest fastest.

The service will contribute to tackling inequalities in health through promoting and supporting people to develop healthier behaviours and lifestyles in the context of their own local communities. It focuses on engaging with individuals in communities and offering them practical support to change their behaviour to achieve their own choices and goals and achieve greater personal resilience stability.

We are looking to recruit a High Intensity Interpersonal Therapist. You must have a core profession in psychological therapy, nursing, social work or occupational therapy. It is essential that you are either IPT trained or are willing to attend further IPT training. BACP (or other recognised body) accreditation or eligible for accreditation is necessary. Alongside a vast experience of working within mental health, you’ll have a proven ability to develop good therapeutic relationships with clients, as well as working relationships with your colleagues. You’ll be confident in managing your own caseload whilst working towards both service and individual targets.

We support people who are having difficulty in coping and suffering mental distress. If you’re inspired by the social model of mental health that works holistically according to need rather than diagnosis and would like to help us achieve our vision, we can offer a competitive remuneration package and excellent training and development opportunities.

You will be required to work on an outreach and rota basis in the community as the service operates 7 days per week
