You will need to be a great listener, with a flexible approach and a flair for planning and prioritising a busy workload. You will enjoy motivating and engaging people in a range of developmental and rehabilitative activities. What’s more, you will have a good understanding of mental health issues and how they affect people and their loved ones.
