Do you ever feel that your current role just isn't fulfilling or rewarding enough?
Do you want a job where you can change lives?
This is a great opportunity to work for an ambitious charity committed to making a difference to the lives of people with learning mental health challenges.
Being a Mental Health Facilitator with us means you will be supporting people with enduring mental health challenges to maintain the best possible physical and mental health whilst being included as part of the community. You will support people to become more independent, to be more confident about making decisions, to be more involved in their communities and to have greater expectations about the sort of things that most of us take for granted in our everyday lives, such as finding a job, making friends and having a relationship.
The role is challenging, but you'll also have great job satisfaction, a sense of achievement, opportunities to learn new skills and the knowledge that your support really can change lives.
We are looking for 2 full time Mental Health Facilitators to work in a residential service and a supported living service (one post will be based in the residential service and the second post will work across both services).
Mental Health Practitioner | Mental Health Worker | Mental Health | Carer | Care | Support | Supported Living | Charity | Residential | Health
A person-centred approach to working is essential - and you must be willing to work flexible hours to meet the demands of the services. This will include evenings, weekends, early mornings, late nights, waking nights and bank holidays and supporting people to go on holiday as required.
You will work as part of team supporting people to live as independently as possible. You will need good communication skills and a collaborative approach to working. You will also be lone-working and you will need skills such as time-management, accountability and honesty to do this.
Location: Southwark SE1
Benefits: Other benefits include annual leave of up to 30 days (including bank holidays), employee helpline, contributory pension scheme, extensive learning and development programme and Cycle to Work scheme.
