See Me is Scotland’s programme to end mental health stigma and discrimination. Our mission is to change minds, change policy and change practice across Scotland. See Me works with people with lived experience of mental health problems to influence change in communities, schools and workplaces and in health and social care.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Volunteer Coordinator to join our team. Working across the programme the post holder will support volunteers to be safely and effectively engaged in the See Me programme and to take action to challenge stigma and discrimination as part of our communications and campaigns, within different communities and settings. This newly created role is central to See Me’s approach; ensuring that people with lived experience of mental health problems (our volunteers) are a central part of the social movement for change to end mental health stigma and discrimination. With strong interpersonal skills you will coordinate, facilitate and empower our volunteers to take action based on their experience in line with our new volunteering plan.
The role will be both challenging and rewarding. The successful candidate will be an energetic and driven individual who is motivated to make a positive impact to end mental health stigma and discrimination. Collaborative working is key to all roles: candidates must be skilled in partnership working and have a strong track record of working as part of a team. At the same time you’ll be adept at ensuring delivery to plan and capturing good monitoring data to support reporting and evaluation.
Closing date for all applications is Monday 8th February at 12 noon.
Interviews for the Volunteer Coordinator post will take place on 1st March
PVG Scheme Membership, a Right to Work in the UK check and proof of qualifications declared on the application form are required.
