Job description

Organisation

Jami is a mental health charity that enriches and saves lives impacted by mental illness and distress in the Jewish community.

Since the start of the pandemic, demand for our services has grown exponentially. In 2021 we undertook a thorough review of the needs of the community, to develop a new strategy that will secure the Jewish community’s mental health provision. The new strategy sets out a huge agenda for change in scale and provision, which will be developed over the next five years while we continue to run our diverse set of highly professional mental health services:

  • Advice and advocacy
  • Treatment and support
  • Education and campaigning

Jami currently supports over 1,400 individuals, delivering almost 50,000 separate service interactions each year, and reaches thousands more people through education, seminars, work in schools and other organisations. Through our social enterprise community café, Head Room, we raise mental health awareness while delivering mental health support on the high street.

Job purpose

We are looking for a Hub Peer Support Worker to support our Northeast Hubs - Redbridge and Hackney.

Peer Support is one of the best forms of therapy for helping people recover from mental distress and its impact on their lives. People who have experienced mental health issues can offer insight and understanding and can draw on their own experiences to help. They can offer an effective complement to the professional support offered by trained mental health workers.  To this end, Jami is looking for someone who understands and who is committed to the values of peer support and who is able to develop this new role in a sensitive and innovative way.    

You will be working as part of our Community Support and Hubs team to support people within our hub settings.

  • To offer people brief practical support (such as support to make a phone call or open a letter) 
  • To model/mentor a recovery process and demonstrate coping skills, using own experience of recovery to inspire hope 
  • To support the team in promoting the role of Peer Support Worker and to raise awareness of what recovery means, contributing to any local research/evaluation of this new role

  • Support service users in the development of personal and life skills with the aim of attaining greater independence and self-esteem, providing emotional support necessary to do so. 
  • Ensure confidentiality of the service and that the service users are respected at all times.
  • Maintain clear, accurate individual records using Apricot database system 
  • Ensure tools for measuring outcomes are used during the course of working with individuals and groups
