  • Closing 27th March 2019

The Brock is a charity and social enterprise that provides constructive therapeutic work activities and facilitated social integration for people with chronic mental health conditions. We focus on what people can do rather than what they can’t. We offer stimulating opportunities to socialise and learn new skills in horticulture, woodwork and a variety of crafts.

Our Vision:

A society where every individual with a mental health condition feels included, supported and valued.

The Brock’s Five Pillars;

  • Psychological Wellbeing
  • Individual Empowerment
  • Shared Decision Making
  • Social Integration
  • Collaborative Working

We are seeking to appoint an energetic and enthusiastic person who shares our vision and who has the necessary skills to help take the enterprise forward. You will be joining the Brock at an exciting time as we develop as a social enterprise and expand our areas of activity. We have an ambitious five-year strategic plan which will provide other exciting opportunities in the near future.

Our service users need you to be kind-hearted, caring, helpful and have a sense of humour.

You will be a people person with excellent administrative skills, will be confident in facilitating weekly craft workshops, and will have the commercial acumen to develop new ideas, products and initiatives.

Under the direction of the operational manager, the successful applicant will take responsibility for the weekly craft workshops and for the day to day administration of the Brock’s operations, e.g. cash sales, invoicing, ordering, spreadsheet maintenance and bank account reconciliation. There is also significant opportunity for the post holder to work alongside the horticultural and woodworking facilitators to support the enterprise initiatives the project is delivering.

In return you will have an opportunity to make a significant contribution to the development of a young organisation; to use your imagination and creativity to influence the direction of the business and its impact on service users. Having the right mind-set, attitude and approach is as important to us as having the right experience and skills. If you feel that this could be you, we look forward to hearing from you!

The successful applicant for this post will be required to apply for membership of the PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) Scheme.
