Informal enquiries to: Mike Easton, Team Manager, CMHT Older People, Town House, Montrose( or email

Hours of work are:  Monday to Friday 9am 5pm, dependent upon service need initially - the CMHTs may develop into a 7 day service within extended working hours and this will be remunerated accordingly.  This post may be rotational across other areas of Older Peoples Mental Health as required by service need.

Short-listed applicants will be contacted by email.   Please check your emails regularly, including your junk/spam folder.

NHS Scotland is reducing their full-time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay. This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff. This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours. However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37-hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Recruiting Board.
