This organisation supports anonymous recruitment. That means hiding your personal identifying information, removing bias from the hiring process.

Working Well is a mental health and employment charity in London. All of our projects share the aim of improving the lives of people with mental health, learning disabilities and/or complex issues through training and employment.  

We are recruiting an temporary part time Employment Support Worker for our supported employment team in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. The post holder will carry a caseload of clients who may have one or more support needs including:

The focus of the role is to support clients to achieve their employment goals, engaging with employers and training providers to secure vocational outcomes in line with client preferences.

The successful candidate must be comfortable in approaching employers, persuading them to use our service, and working with them to recruit our clients to fill vacancies and sustain employment. 

You will work closely with referring teams, providing a coordinated approach that always remains client led.  You will also be in working to targets whilst maintaining a high-quality service.

We are operating a hybrid working model in our Kingston team, with a combination of working from home and in the community.
