Job description


Moving Forward is a floating support service for people with mental health problems based at The Exchange in Newark, working in partnership with local Living Well Teams and Community Mental Health Teams.

This role requires empathy and resilience, alongside a commitment to respond effectively, empower people to find confidence and strengths and a respect for the individual.

Ideally you should have a working knowledge of the support needs of people with mental health problems living independently in their own home, but being able to demonstrate transferrable skills and a commitment to continuous learning would be considered. Extensive training and induction will be provided to the right candidate.

In this role you will provide specifically tailored support to help people to achieve their individual goals and assist them to reflect and learn from their progress and achievements.

The Moving Forward service has a long and successful record of supporting people to achieve and make key, positive changes to their own lives. If you join our dynamic and motivated team, you would carry your own caseload and support your colleagues to excel at all times.

You will be expected to have good social interaction and communication skills, empathy and some understanding of the needs of people struggling with their mental health, benefits, housing law, debt and health and resilience.

The role requires flexible and creative effort from you that can aid the development of the people we support. A professional approach and commitment to support vulnerable people in this service are a must. You would be expected to keep accurate and relevant support notes, demonstrate how to resolve problems, advocate and communicate at all levels with various community agencies.

Must have a current driving licence and access to a car (mileage paid).

What we offer: Life Assurance, Pension (up to 4% matched by FHA), Enhanced Maternity, Paternity and Adoption Benefits, Additional Annual Leave Purchase Scheme, Employee Assistance Programme, Learning programmes tailored to suit different roles and services, Health Cash Plan.
