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. 

Our out of hours crisis service, Journey Recovery Hub, has been running since December 2019. The service provides 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 in a new service, which aspires to achieve the above aims. We are looking for highly motivated, caring individuals, who have knowledge and experience of supporting vulnerable adults to increase their independence and develop self-management strategies.

The successful applicant will have an understanding and empathy for people with mental health needs and will be used to working in a team of staff and volunteers.  You will need to have clear project management skills, and be self-motivated, a good communicator and be able to prioritise and manage your time effectively. 

You will be required to work across both Hubs locations and/or work remotely, 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.
