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

Working Well Trust 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 a full time (35 hours per week) Employment Specialist for our Individual Placement and Support (IPS) team in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. We are a Centre of Excellence and adhere closely to the principles of the IPS model in supporting people in to employment. 

You will work with clients (managing a caseload) who have mental health support needs, to assist them in securing sustainable paid employment in line with their preferences. You will deliver the IPS approach (for which training will be given); providing person centred support and guidance to clients, whilst building positive relationships with local employers to enable clients to move into suitable employment.

You will work as part of a mental health team, maintaining positive and integrated relationships, fostering a holistic approach to recovery through employment.

Employment Specialists work with clients to identify their employment needs and then actively support them to achieve their employment goals, engaging regularly with employers directly to secure jobs.  We focus on people’s strengths and potential, working with clients who want to find work regardless of their experience level and background.  We do not use the phrase "job ready" as the only criteria is whether someone wants to get a job. 

Experience of employment support is not essential, it is more important that you share our commitment to supporting people to find the right job for them.  The successful candidate must be comfortable in approaching employers, persuading them to use our service, working with them to recruit our clients to fill vacancies and sustain employment. 

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

The role is currently a mix of home and on-site working, but community work will be resumed once it is safe to do so for both staff and clients. 

Please click apply to send your CV and cover form (please add the cover form to the end of your CV when uploading. Applications without a cover form will not be considered). Candidates need to clearly outline how they meet the person specification points in their personal statement and specify whether the application is full or part time. 

Staff benefits include an employer contribution to a personal or workplace pension equivalent to 6% of gross salary.  30 days annual leave plus paid public holidays. 

Working Well Trust is an equal opportunities and confident about disabilities employer (two ticks). 

Closing date: Thursday 4th November

Interviews: w/c Monday 8th November
