Job description

CPSL Mind has a new, exciting career opportunity!

Job Title: Sessional Support Co-Host
Based: Remote Working
Hours: Part-time - Working days/evenings and weekends.
Salary: £15.00 per hour

About us

Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire (CPSL) Mind is a progressive and expanding mental health charity. Our vision is a society in which everyone has positive mental health and feels part of a connected community.

Background to the role

We are excited to be working in partnership with the University of Cambridge to deliver a programme called ‘Mentally Healthy Universities’ which involves running the following two-hour training courses for students throughout the academic year:

  • Tools and Techniques for Student Mental Health (a 4 X 2-hour programme)
  • Looking After Your Mental Health at Work

We also run the following course for staff:

  • Peer Support

About the role

This role is required to support the Mentally Healthy Universities Trainers with online training sessions.

Responsibilities include:

  • managing the registration process for each course and be aware of attendees on the course, following procedures if anyone suddenly leaves without notice.
  • managing the chat box on Zoom, responding to needs and queries as appropriate.
  • monitoring and maintaining awareness of the participants at each session, and if someone shows signs of distress, or if you have concerns about a student’s welfare, be alert to this and move that person to a breakout room on Zoom or have a phone call. From there, follow agreed protocols to deal with any safeguarding issues. Where appropriate, signpost participants to alternative services to support their mental health and complete appropriate paperwork, keeping the MHU Project Lead aware of any action taken.
  • resolve technology issues quickly (we provide some Zoom training, but you will need to feel confident to use your knowledge on Zoom)

About you

You should be passionate about helping others: supporting adults experiencing mental health issues, and/or their carers.  You should be enthusiastic and highly motivated, with strong and professional interpersonal skills and demonstrate the values of CPSL Mind.
