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.

Snowdon is a CQC registered service for up to eight individuals with mental health and complex needs. The service is located just outside the town centre and has good transport links. Utilising your positive and creative approach, this is an opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives.

We’re currently looking to recruit a motivated team player to work alongside the individuals we support through various aspects of their recovery. Working with people with complex needs, you will utilise elements of personalisation to improve engagement and promote positive outcomes and independence. This will involve producing risk assessments and recovery focused support plans, supporting those who use the service with recovery-focused activities, including one-to-one key-working sessions, booking/attending appointments, bidding for housing, completing official forms and daily living skills. Our activities are based on the interests of those that use the service and can be based within the project or community.

You will be required to work independently, as well as part of a team and will need to have a degree of flexibility in your working pattern. A full and comprehensive training package will be available to you. You will also have opportunities to develop specific skills as well as expand your knowledge and working practices within the mental health field.

Although direct experience is advantageous, if you have a positive attitude and are committed to Together’s values around service user involvement, we will be keen to hear from you.

As part of a 2 week rolling rota, you will be required to work 7.5hr shifts with some early starts and evening finishes, alternate weekends and sleep in duties: a sleep-in allowance is applicable.

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