This is an exciting time to be joining Mind and becoming part of the partnership with the Norfolk & Suffolk Mental Health Foundation Trust delivering services within the provision of the Norfolk and Waveney Wellbeing Service. The service is commissioned by the five CCG areas to help people with mild to moderate mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. Services are provided from bases in Kings Lynn, Gt Yarmouth, Wymondham and Norwich for people aged 16 and over. The successful applicants will be committed to delivering excellent support to those accessing the Wellbeing Service, be able to work within a team and be responsive and adaptive to change.
These roles will lead the employment advice service, working closely with the wider team which provides psychological therapies to people with common mental health problems such as anxiety and depression, and their clinicians. The employment advice service will support people to gain, return to or retain employment and will work directly alongside Job Centre Plus, employers, trade unions and employment agencies to keep people in employment and secure employment opportunities.
The post-holders will manage and support a team of Employment Advisors and the successful candidates will be highly-organised, will be able to work autonomously and will have a creative and collaborative approach.
A full driving license and access to your own transport is essential for this role.
If you have a proven track record leading in an information and advice background, have been responsible for managing and coaching others and have the ability to empower people to come up with their own solutions we would love to hear from you.
