Job description

Richmond Borough Mind is a vibrant local charity that has been supporting and providing services for adults affected by mental health problems and their carers for over 60 years. 

Funding has recently been secured to provide two Crisis Cafes, to be delivered across the boroughs of Richmond and Kingston.

Crisis Cafés provide out-of-hours support to those suffering from mental health problems, aiming to prevent escalation, reduce isolation, increase independence and self-management and improve mental health and wellbeing.

This is an exciting role for someone to develop and shape a new service to achieve the above aims. We are looking for two individuals to lead on this service. Successful candidates will be highly motivated managers, with knowledge and experience of supporting vulnerable adults and using the recovery approach in service provision.

The successful applicants will have clear project management skills to support our flexible approach to delivering crisis interventions moving forwards.  You will also be a motivating and inspirational leader, and be skilled at encouraging and supporting your team of staff and volunteers to deliver effective person centred support for our clients.  You will be enthusiastic and self-motivated, and must be able to work on your own initiative. 

You will be required to work across both Crisis Café locations, in a shift pattern over evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays.

 

Richmond Borough Mind values diversity and difference.  We welcome applicants from all sections of the community, particularly individuals with lived experience of mental health problems.

 

Successful candidates will be required to complete an enhanced DBS.

The closing date for applications is 9am Wednesday 20th November 2019. 

Interviews are provisionally scheduled to take place the week commencing 25th November 2019.
