A dedicated out of hours AMHP service.
Great opportunities to go above and beyond.
The Berkshire Emergency Duty Service (hosted by Bracknell Forest Council) is a unique service providing out of hours emergency social care for the whole of Berkshire. We are proud of our community, the care we give, the services we provide and the links and networks we create. But we’re always looking to do more. Which is why we give our people the time, support and resources they need not only to do their job well, but also to help define the way we do things more broadly.
There’ll always be room for your ideas here. This is about taking ownership and having the opportunity to learn, develop and progress. Together, we make big things happen.
But we’re also focused on the smaller things that make all the difference. And that’s as true for our employees as it is for our residents. We have strong teams and excellent manager relationships. Expert advice is there whenever you need it. Put simply, a career with us means having everything you need to build on your skills. To build better relationships. To build even better communities. This is your chance to make a lasting impact.
