Job description

Are you resilient, confident, and looking for a new challenge working within mental health service delivery?

Assert is a small team of advocates working as a project within Mental Health Resource charity and as part of the Kent Advocacy partnership. We provide high quality advocacy and statutory IMHA services to individuals affected by mental health problems, often detained in medium and low secure units and in acute inpatient settings. We also offer community advocacy in West Kent. This can be a tough job, but in return you will receive competitive pay, training, benefits and have the support of a strong team. You will have the opportunity to expand on your existing skills and attributes required for the role. Training will be provided if you are not yet qualified as an IMHA.

You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and show confidence and assertiveness when required. You will understand the diverse needs of people affected by mental health problems and how these differ for those detained in inpatient settings from those requiring support in the community. You will need to be resilient and have the ability to cope with sometimes challenging people and environments. In addition, you will have strong organisational skills and be able to work on your own initiative, as well as within a team.

You will have a natural confident and calm manner and key skills of resilience, professionalism, honesty, trustworthiness, and respect for confidentiality.

You will be passionate about mental health advocacy. Ideally, you will have experience of working as an advocate, and if you are not qualified as an IMHA, you must be prepared to undertake training.

A willingness to work within a diverse range of environments is essential as is the ability to work with people from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. The job will require some community advocacy, but mostly working within acute wards, medium and low secure forensic units, and locked rehabilitation units across West Kent. A current driving licence and access to transport is essential.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, client work will be delivered remotely via telephone or video conferencing.

An Enhanced DBS check will be required for the role.

For further information please read the job description and person specification. To apply please send a covering letter explaining how you meet the person specification along with a copy of your current CV to Ms Leigh Attwood, Office Manager, at Mental Health Resource. 

Please note standalone CV’s will not be accepted

Closing date: Monday 1st February 2021, at 12 noon

Expected interview date:  Weds 10th or Thurs 11th February 2021

Mental Health Resource is committed to equal opportunities and promoting diversity, and encourage applications from all sections of the community.
