Main duties of the job
Prison Mental Health and Substance Misuse work is vital to improve the health and wellbeing of prisoners and reduce re-offending. Our teams have great potential to turn lives around, enable recovery and reverse social exclusion.
We are excited to be recruiting an experienced registered Mental Health professional Band 8a Senior Cluster Manager across two prisons on the Isle of Wight. The ideal candidate will have significant experience in managing and leading Mental Health/ Substance Misuse services. Experience or interest in working in Prison or Forensic services would be advantageous but not essential. Management and leadership of interventions for those experiencing acute and severe mental illness is a significant part of this role. A mental health professional registration is required as is a comprehensive working knowledge of the Mental Health Act in relation to those people serving prison sentences that require transfer to hospital.

We support individuals, families and communities who are affected by addiction, crime, mental health or need treatment for their sexual health. We believe that the individuals and families who use our services should receive high quality, committed and inclusive care, realising all the benefits a modern NHS organisation can provide.
We work with patients and our staff teams to achieve the best outcomes we can. We invest heavily in training and development, and the wellbeing of our people, both staff and service users is central to who we are. Here at MPFT, we are proud of the comprehensive wellbeing and lifestyle support offer available, in addition to in-house training and coaching support.
Our services are robustly governed, evidence-based, inclusive, and designed
The prisons and their populations are very different, making the work varied and interesting, with excellent opportunities to grow and develop a range of skills. With a strong background in leading/managing Mental Health /Substance Misuse services and a mental health related professional registration, the successful candidate will have a proven record of effective operational management and a proven ability to develop high quality services. You will have the skills to develop and maintain positive working relationships with a range of stakeholders and partners including with our lead provider Practice Plus Group (PPG) and other prison services and departments.
