Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind is a highly regarded local charity, helping people to be mentally healthy and working together with those experiencing mental health problems and dementia to improve their quality of life. With an annual turnover of £7M, over 180 staff and 260 volunteers, we are one of the largest charities in the Mind network.

Delivered through funding from the London Borough of Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group, BLG Mind’s award-winning Mindful Mums Programme aims to prevent pregnant and new mums from developing mental health problems during the perinatal period (pregnancy to 1 year). The service has delivered support to over 2,000 women within the last six years.

We are looking for a Project Coordinator to further develop and deliver our Mindful Mums Befriending Service in Bromley. This role will take lead responsibility for recruiting and managing befriending volunteers and ensuring high quality support is delivered to mums referred into the service.

You will be a warm, effective communicator with experience of supporting and managing volunteers within community-based services. You will have experience of delivering training and managing a high volume workload.

Your exceptional organisation skills will ensure that targets are met, accurate records are kept and services are continually improved. The ability to work independently whilst maintaining clear and consistent communication within the team is vital. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a dynamic, collaborative and friendly team.

This role would ideally suit a parent who has successfully managed their own perinatal mental health problems.

Successful applicants will be expected to undergo an Enhanced Level Disclosure and Barring Service check.

We recognise the importance of having a diverse and inclusive work force, and would therefore particularly welcome applications from the following, currently under-represented, groups:

  • People from culturally diverse communities
  • Disabled people
  • People with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities
  • Young people

BLG Mind is committed to meeting the reasonable adjustments of disabled people and always welcomes applications from people with lived experience of mental health problems.

Staff benefits include a matched contribution pension scheme, 25 days' holiday (pro-rata, rising with service), quality supervision and training opportunities. See our website for more reasons to work for Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind.

Closing date: Tuesday 7th June (11:59pm)

Likely Interview date: Wednesday 22nd June in Beckenham
