Role

The Patients’ Advocacy Service (PAS) aims to provide an independent, highly skilled, responsible and professionally run service within The State Hospital. Whilst observing the safety and security of the Hospital, the service works independently within it to promote patients as individuals, to support them and to enable them to be fully informed and involved in their care and treatment.

PAS is looking for a permanent independent advocate, from the office based in The State Hospital. Hours are negotiable up to a maximum of 28 per week for an initial period of 12 months maternity cover. This role is a great opportunity to join our team and gain experience in a unique environment.

The successful applicant will be polite, helpful and have excellent communication skills as well as the ability to work well as part of a small team. Work involving those with mental health is essential; work involving those with intellectual disabilities would be advantageous. This role would suit someone with a desire to support those who are disadvantaged, have strong organisational and interpersonal skills and who can prioritise and manage their own workload whilst effectively multi-tasking.
