Job Description

Imago is a long established, well respected and effective charity working across Kent, Medway, East Sussex  and London to deliver a range of services to individuals, voluntary and community organisations, the public and private sector.

Our mission is to promote, develop and facilitate social action, support independence and empower communities. User and volunteer engagement, leadership and involvement in decision making are core principles.

We deliver a wide range of services in partnership with funders, public sector commissioners and private sector sponsors to children and young people, older people, carers, and volunteers.

Underpinning our work is a commitment to excellence, evidencing impact and safeguarding vulnerable people.

Imago offers a competitive remuneration package consisting of salary, contributory pension, healthcare benefits and 25 days annual leave plus Bank Holidays.

Do you want to make a positive impact on young people’s mental health?
Are you self-motivated, approachable and flexible with a ‘can do’ attitude?

This is an exciting opportunity to join an established team delivering Children and Young People services and bring our successful SAFE project to Greenwich secondary schools. Imago is a leading charity providing support and opportunities to people across the South East.

SAFE is an innovative mental health and suicide prevention programme which supports young people to recognise the signs of mental health in themselves and peers, empower them to talk about their feelings and ask for help, establish peer support networks and build resilience. You will lead and manage the implementation of the programme within local schools, build resilience, reduce stigma and promote wider school-based mental health initiatives. 

Young People are at the heart of the SAFE programme and you support and train older students to become SAFE ambassadors in their schools, setting up SAFE spaces and offering peer-to-peer support.

You will build local networks, working collaboratively with partner agencies; and plan and deliver SAFE events.
You can make the difference for now and the future.
