Are you an experienced Trainer/Coach, passionate about improving mental wellbeing? We seek a motivated individual to deliver mental health training and one-to-one coaching sessions.
Lancashire Mind is the leading mental health charity in Lancashire. Our work enables people in Lancashire to value and take care of their mental health. Our passionate and dedicated team challenge misconceptions about mental health, develop resilience in people from an early age and work with communities to improve mental wellbeing.

We are at a key point in the development of our training programme as we build on our current workplace wellbeing service to support more businesses to improve wellbeing across their workforce. As part of this development, over the next 12 months, we are leading a partnership of training providers to deliver suicide prevention interventions across Lancashire and South Cumbria as part of the Integrated Care System (ICS) suicide prevention and reduction scheme.

We want to build on our existing training and workplace wellbeing service to broaden our delivery and we now seek an experienced trainer to add capacity to our team. The Trainer & Wellbeing Coach will deliver mental health and suicide prevention training in a variety of workplaces, including small local businesses, public sector organisations, and national companies with a local base. Alongside this, you will provide one-to-one wellbeing coaching sessions to support and motivate individuals to improve their health and wellbeing.

Working with colleagues in the Training Team, you will organise, plan and deliver activities, including delivery of training to diverse groups, varying in size and in a range of settings. You will work with the Training Lead to promote the service and identify opportunities for business development, which will require excellent communication and relationship building skills.

Lancashire Mind is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community, particularly candidates with a lived experience of mental health conditions who fulfil all the criteria within the person specification.

Employees of Lancashire Mind benefit from a 35-hour working week with flexible start and finish times, 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays), a company pension scheme, a sick pay scheme, up to 5 days paid emergency leave to care for dependents, regular supervision, and a variety of learning and development opportunities.
