The Role

Together is an amazing place to work. And it’s not just because we’re one of the UK’s oldest and most respected mental health charities. It’s because we put the people who use our services at the heart of everything we do – supporting and enabling them to take control of their lives and make a positive contribution to the community.

Green Lane is a registered project supporting people with mental health and other complex needs. In order to reflect our current client group, we are seeking to recruit a female staff to become part of our Residential Recovery team.

Your duties will include working as part of a team to run the service and the building, providing guidance and support to people with mental health issues via the provision of a recovery focused service, involving working with people with complex and challenging recovery needs, utilising elements of personalisation in order to improve engagement and promoting reliable, timely and positive outcomes.

We need someone with a commitment to empowering our service users and the ability to work with and adapt to the needs of people. You need to be able to work flexibly as part of a team. We need someone who can work alongside others in developing and maintaining relationships with stakeholders and driving the service forward.

It would be advantageous to have experience working directly in a mental health environment, and experience of the recovery model, including running groups with service users and working one-to-one. We will, however, consider applications from people with an educational background or with transferable experience.

This post has been advertised in accordance with The Equality Act 2010, Part 1, Schedule 9.

We do not accept CVs as part of the application process.

We have a firm commitment to encouraging fairness and diversity in our work force and we welcome applications from disabled people and those from BME backgrounds.
