From January 2017, SAMH have introduced a new suite of services throughout the whole of Aberdeenshire to support people with mental health problems and those with Autism on their recovery journey. These new and exciting services look and feel very different to the traditional models of support and will be based on fundamental principles of empowerment, resilience and hope.

Around since 1923, SAMH is Scotland’s national mental health charity. Today, SAMH operates 60 services in communities across Scotland providing mental health social care support, homelessness, addictions and employment services among others. These services, together with our national programme work in See Me, respectme, suicide prevention and active living; inform our policy and campaign work to influence positive social change.

We are seeking outstanding people to develop and deliver these services across Aberdeenshire. To successfully embed the 6 elements of our new peripatetic service, SAMH are seeking flexible, enthusiastic people to work with individuals, groups and volunteers within local communities across Aberdeenshire.

As a flexible and skilled communicator you will deliver meaningful support to people accessing our services. Whether working with individuals or with groups you will support people to strengthen their existing skills and identify and build new skills. Utilising coaching approaches you will help people build momentum in self-management and personal resilience. Although this role will be working across the whole of Aberdeenshire, the post holder’s main focus of work will be concentrated within the north of the area.
