Charity registered in Scotland SC002072
Mindspace Limited, one of Scotland’s most exciting mental health charities, based in Perth, offers an experienced counselling service alongside Scotland’s first independent Recovery College and works with hundreds of people across the county.
Mindspace Recovery College is part of Mindspace Limited. We aim to promote mental wellbeing in a safe and supportive environment within Perth and Kinross by providing services to the community which complement those offered by statutory organisations.
We formed our Adult Recovery College in October 2015 to develop and deliver programmes of self-management, awareness and information sessions for adults with experience of mental ill-health to promote wellbeing and recovery. The Adult Recovery Facilitator is crucial to our success in continuing the development of the Recovery College in partnership with the Young Peoples’ Recovery College, Peer Support and the Mindspace Counselling Service.
You’ll be a key point of contact within the Recovery College. Your responsibilities will focus around designing, delivering, validating, evaluating, reporting, and the continuous development of structured learning programmes for people with mental ill health. You will report to and collaborate with the Senior Recovery Facilitator to contribute to the development of service guidelines, policies and protocols. You will help shape the ongoing vision and goals of the Recovery College to ensure that future development of the service meets the needs of the people it supports. You will also participate in external forums, workshops and events to promote the work and ethos of Mindspace.
TO BE SUCCESSFUL
Educated to degree level or able to provide verifiable evidence of the equivalent, you will have sound knowledge of mental health issues, appropriate referral mechanisms, and will be able to provide proof of positive interactions with groups and individuals. You will have a minimum of two years’ experience and evident achievements as a facilitator of learning programmes and working with people in a learning environment. You will be self-motivated with excellent communication and influencing skills, attention to detail, and the ability to work without close supervision. You will be a great time manager and an effective problem-solver, but more importantly, you will be able to demonstrate the qualities that build trust and foster good relations that will enable you to connect and interact well with our students, the team and partners. Sensitivity and confidentiality are crucial in this role.
The Adult Recovery Facilitator role provides an exciting opportunity if you love being part of an organisation that actively supports people to make a difference in their lives. This role enables you to bring your expertise and grow your skills in an environment that has plenty of variety, and where new challenges and opportunities arise every day.
