The SAMH National Employment Team operates high quality services to support customers to access and sustain employment. An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Team and make a positive impact on the lives of the customers we support.
SAMH Tools for Living™ is a personal development programme - a range of workshops, designed to help individuals in their journey to healthier lives and employment. Tools for Living™ aims to help people develop their knowledge, confidence and skills in a variety of areas, by creating opportunities to get together with others to:
· Hear about successful approaches (self-management)
· Learn from each other (peer support)
· Be energised to make positive changes (recovery)
SAMH’s Tools for Living™ is built on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). It also harnesses a range of social care, psychological leadership and employment theories such as person centered planning tools, change theory, personal motivation and reverse career planning. It consists of 21 workshops arranged into 3 distinct programmes.
This is the most challenging and rewarding job you may ever apply for. The positive impact you can make on peoples’ lives will be down to the quality of support you provide as well as knowing your work will positively improve the lives’ of your customers and the wider community.
Your attitude and personality matter as much as your skills and experiences. We are looking for initiative, creativity, energy and determination because, as a Tutor, you’ll be supporting a diverse set of unemployed customers to develop personal skills. They will each require different support so you’ll be doing a job that’s varied, challenging and genuinely rewarding.
Whatever your experience, we need people with an open-minded, determined attitude who can motivate and inspire both themselves and their customers to succeed. You will need to be comfortable working on your own initiative without the day to day presence of line management and one of your strengths will be building and maintaining positive relationships.
As this post will involve travel across various locations a full driving license and access to your own transport is essential.
