SAMH (the Scottish Association for Mental Health) is a charity working across Scotland. Every year, we provide over a million hours of support to people who need our help. Every week, we work with around 3,000 individuals in over 60 services. Every day, we campaign for better mental health for the people of Scotland
The SAMH National Employment Team operates high quality services to support customers to access and sustain employment. As part of our package of Employability products, an exciting opportunity has arisen to join the team and make a positive impact on the lives of the customers we support.
Working closely with the integrated adult community mental health services in North Ayrshire, you will work with people using mental health services, employers and professional networks to secure employment for people with severe and enduring mental health problems.
You will be able to demonstrate a good understanding of best practice in mental health provision and/or in the provision of employability and employment services. A working knowledge of IPS in particular would be an advantage, but full IPS training will be provided. We are looking for initiative, creativity, energy and determination and the ability to motivate, develop and inspire individuals to develop their self-confidence and realise their aspirations. You will be a self-starter, thrive in a multi-agency setting and have an appetite to promote this innovative approach.
As this post will involve travel across North Ayrshire a full driving licence and access to your own transport is desirable.
