This specific role involves the design and delivery of group-based and individual employability and personal development interventions, work placement sourcing/support and delivery and design of cognitive remediation therapy to a wide range of participants over a 6-month period. The aim of the project is to move the client closer towards accessing more mainstream job-seeking services. The project began in June 2012 and we are confident we will secure funding to continue the project beyond March 2020.

The successful candidate should have some knowledge of cognitive remediation therapy and be experienced delivering a range of employability based soft skills to both individuals and groups with complex, severe and enduring mental health conditions. The successful candidate will deliver elements of the accredited training programme, and develop new content for the coursework. You will be based in our offices in Glenrothes, though are also expected to carry out a proportion of work in NHS inpatient/outpatient settings within Fife, with patients with complex mental health conditions, on a one-to-one basis.
