Passionate about making a difference for people with mental ill-health?
Birchwood Highland is the leading provider of support for those experiencing mental ill health throughout Highland. With offices in Inverness, Wick, Fort William and Invergordon we operate pan Highland in the delivery of community-based services. In addition, our Recovery Centre in Inverness is a 23-bed residential unit that delivers 24-hour support to residents and respite facilities. It is a unique facility that is graded as providing excellent services by the Care Inspectorate. At the cutting edge of mental health recovery, we lead on excellence and innovation in the sector.
Our organisation also operates a subsidiary, Birchwood Highland Enterprises, that works on a variety of activities that support our work in mental ill-health.
We are currently seeking Trustees to join our dynamic charity board and ensure it provides governance of the highest quality and rigour as the organisation enters an exciting new phase of growth.
We are looking for people to help set the policy and strategic direction, targets and evaluate the performance of the organisation. You don’t need to have experience of serving on a Board just a willingness to bring the skills that you have developed during your career to help the Board reach its objectives. Some of the areas where the board would like to increase its expertise include: community development, I.T and legal. We are particularly looking for people with experience or knowledge of the health care sector particularly in the field of mental ill-health.
We're keen to make sure we hear the voice of the whole community in Highland, so welcome applications from people from all walks of life regardless of ethnicity, disability, age, gender, sexual orientation or religion.
The time commitment can vary depending upon the needs of the organisation, however there are 6 meetings each year of the Board that you will need to attend, and all expenses are reimbursed.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and motivated individual to join our Project ECHO® team. The successful candidate will have an opportunity to work within the Hospice setting with global digital connectivity.
The job will provide an excellent foundation to build specialised knowledge about the current health and social care landscape in Highland and expand the ability to integrate a project through personalised service and support to a diverse audience of practitioners.
This is an exciting time to join the ECHO® team, an expanding project utilising modern practice in combining administration, marketing practice, digital platforms and collaborative learning including a virtual learning environment (VLE).
