Job description

Job title: Project Worker

Hours: full-time, 35 hours per week (12-month fixed term, with the potential for extension dependent on funding)

Salary: NJC point 3 (£18,065) to 6 (£19,171)

Responsible to: Community Development Lead OR Bounce Forward Lead

Location: Chorley, with extensive travel to other areas of Lancashire OR initially based in Blackpool
Are you looking for a new challenge? Can you motivate and inspire children and young people to improve mental wellbeing for themselves and their peers?

Lancashire Mind is the leading mental health charity in Lancashire. We’re looking to recruit two Project Workers to support the wider work of the team. One post will initially support the Bounce Forward team in Blackpool with delivery in primary schools, with the other post primarily delivering on Whole School Approach in high schools across Lancashire.

You will work closely with colleagues to organise, plan and deliver wellbeing interventions and activities as part of either Bounce Forward or Whole School Approach, as well as supporting the planning and delivery of other aspects of the Team’s work.

We seek organised individuals with experience of providing administrative support to colleagues, as well as having some experience of delivery. Ideal candidates will be confident presenting to a range of audiences and different group sizes, following set session plans. Experience of engaging children and young people from a range of backgrounds, is beneficial to the role, as is knowledge of the barriers to achieving mental wellbeing.

As well as engaging children and young people, you will support Community Development Coordinators and/or Wellbeing Coaches, to build and maintain relationships with stakeholders before, during and after delivery of project work, therefore, an ability to communicate with people on different levels is important for the role.

You will help with gathering evidence, data and case studies for evaluation and reports and will post highlights about Lancashire Mind’s work on our social media platforms. Most of all, we’re looking for people who can use their passion for mental wellbeing to motivate and inspire others.

This is a great opportunity to be part of a team that works primarily with children and young people but is in a stage of development, with a view to expanding services to a wider audience across Lancashire. Everyone who works for Lancashire Mind is fuelled by a passionate belief that achieving mental wellbeing will reduce the occurrence of mental health conditions and help those with conditions to manage them better and stay well for longer.

In return for your passion and commitment, you'll have access to 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays), paid time off for emergencies, a workplace wellbeing scheme, a company sick pay scheme and a range of other benefits.

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.

The deadline for applications is 9am on Thursday 26th September 2019.

Please ensure you indicate on your application form if you have preference for one post over the other. Interviews will take place on Tuesday 8th October 2019 in Chorley. Please reserve this date in your diary because it will not be possible to offer alternative dates.

The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
