About the Team and the Role
This is a unique opportunity for a Team Manager to be part of an integrated multi-disciplinary specialist mental health team. The successful applicant will be employed by Warwickshire County Council but seconded to Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust (CWPT) Mental Health Services under a successful section 75 agreement. This allows for the meaningful integration of the social care agenda within the local Mental Health Trust and prioritises a holistic person-centred approach to meeting the needs and outcomes of the local population.
