Applications are invited from individuals who are experienced in working with mental health client groups, are experienced group workers and who are passionate about person-centred approaches.
Drumchapel L.I.F.E. is committed to equality of access at every level within the organisation. We welcome applications from all sections of the community. We guarantee an interview to disabled candidates who meet the essential criteria.
