Mental Health Development Worker required at Transforming Communities Together
11 Dec 2020 by Mazeline Hemmings
- VCS Feature
Mental health has been a common theme in much of TCT’s work, featuring strongly in its work on social and financial inclusion, and on community cohesion and integration. It was one of three priorities identified by the Wolverhampton Truth Commission.
In 2021, the Diocese of Lichfield is giving TCT responsibility for its church-based mental health work, which had developed over several years through the introduction of the Lifting the Lid course and the training of over 80 people on the two-day Mental Health First Aid course. Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on the mental health of many people, in particular those who were already vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Transforming Communities Together is seeking to appoint a Mental Health Development Worker.
Salary: £18,000 (£30,000 FTE) plus travel expense.
Term: 12 months with possible extension, subject to funding
Hours: 21 hours per week, with flexibility over which days. Occasional evening and weekend working might be needed.
If you are passionate about making a difference, a self-starter (with the ability to work independently and flexibly) and passionate about championing mental health, this could be the role for you.
If you are interested in this role, please complete the application form and send to James Henderson at email@example.com.
To find out more about the requirements of the role and how to apply, see the website.
Applications close at 12 noon on Monday, 11th January 2021
Interviews will take place via Zoom on Wednesday 20th January 2021.
