  • Full time
  • £27,405

Role

FEAT is seeking a full-time Team Supervisor to oversee and manage the Employ Your Mind (EYM) project - an innovative vocational rehabilitation project aimed at developing the employability skills of inpatients and outpatients of Fife mental health services. The aim of EYM is to move students closer towards accessing more mainstream job-seeking services.

The successful candidate will be part of an internationally recognised, world-leading project delivering cognitive remediation therapy (CRT) and employability skills to students and clients with complex mental health problems, at different stages on their journey towards employment. The role involves delivery of group-based and individual employability and personal development interventions, work placement sourcing/support and delivery and design of CRT to a wide range of participants who study over a 6-month period. The role also involves delivering training to other professional teams.

The Team Supervisor will oversee and manage the key objectives of the EYM team as well as the day-to-day performance of EYM employees. As a successful supervisor you will have excellent organisational and communication skills. These skills will help you transfer information from senior management to employees and communicate EYM teams’ performance or needs to senior managers. This role is fully supported by FEAT management of which this role forms part.

The role is based in our offices in Fife, and you are expected to carry out a proportion of work in NHS inpatient/outpatient settings and in the community around Fife, with patients with complex mental health conditions, on a one-to-one basis. Due to Covid-19, the role is likely to start home-based as FEAT virtual provision is now live. This innovative project has secured substantial further funding from Opportunities Fife and the European Social Investment Fund and we expect to continue beyond March 2021. You will be part of an enthusiastic dynamic team offering an inclusive, non-judgmental approach to support and empower people to flourish by managing their mental health for life.

FEAT are an Equal Opportunities and Disability Confident employer and encourage applications from all members of the community including disabled applicants. We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of gender and ethnic group, but, as members of ethnic minority groups are currently under-represented in our organisation we would encourage applications from members of these groups. Appointment will be based on merit alone. FEAT's vision is to enable and support individuals to reach their full positive mental well-being in a culture where there is no stigma.
