Job description

Touchstone (registered charity No. 1012053) is a leading voluntary agency, providing high quality services to improve the health and  wellbeing of local people.

IAPT Employment Advisor
£23,187 pa/pro rata
37 hours per week
This role is fixed term until 30 September 2020

Leeds IAPT consists of 4 partners, Leeds Community Healthcare, Touchstone, Northpoint and Community Links. Together we have delivered the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme in Leeds since 2009. Northpoint Wellbeing is leading on the Employment Advisor project on behalf of the wider Leeds IAPT partnership.

The integrated Employment Advice service promotes ease of referrals from IAPT practitioners, and provides timely, confidential and impartial support for IAPT patients who require additional interventions based on their employment needs. It’s a service which will addresses the emotional challenges of continuing in, starting, or resuming work, through providing integrated psychological treatment and employment support.

Leeds Employment Advisors in IAPT programme: Background Information

The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme began in 2008 and has transformed treatment of adult anxiety disorders and depression in England. In Leeds, around 13,000 people now access IAPT services each year, and the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health committed to expanding services further, alongside improving quality.

In 2019 Leeds IAPT service was funded to participate in a national Employment Advisors in IAPT pilot scheme. The main focus of the pilot has been to support people using IAPT talking therapies by providing practical advice and interventions to help them retain or enter sustainable new employment.

At its foundation in 2008, one of the objectives of the IAPT initiative was to increase the availability of talking therapies to individuals absent from work through mental health difficulties whose aim was to return to employment. IAPT also recognised that offering therapeutic interventions could act as a preventative measure to employees taking time off work for symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression.

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced employment support professional to be part of a developing service which will improve the quality of life for people with common mental health problems. Touchstone are recruiting to 1 post of an Employment advisor. This role will be managed through a matrix management model which is currently delivered by Touchstone and Northpoint Wellbeing.

The role will involve working across multiple sites across Leeds. Depending on further funding from the Department of Work and Pensions the successful candidate would be expected to attend a University Course through Liverpool John Moore University alongside the role.

The post holder will be based within the Touchstone IAPT team currently consisting of 10 CBT Therapists, 1 Trainee CBT Therapist, 1 Senior PWP, 2 Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners, 3 Employment Advisors, 2 Trainee PWP’s, 1.5 Administrators, a Team Manager and a Deputy Manager.

Touchstone is an equal opportunities organisation and applications are welcome from all sections of the community, particularly LGBT communities and/or people with disabilities who are under-represented within Touchstone. We also recognise that BAME communities are under-represented in the Leeds IAPT workforce. We are therefore especially keen to receive applications from under- represented communities.
