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

We are looking for an experienced professional to join a growing and successful project providing support for people with diagnosed mental health problems who have become isolated. Linked Minds has been operational since Oct 2018 and works exclusively to support people with a diagnosis of mental health problems through volunteer befriending.  

You will have experience in supporting people with mental health problems and be committed to the Recovery Approach. You will:

  • Manage a caseload of clients with diagnosed mental health problems and ensure they establish and maintain a supportive and safe befriending relationship with their volunteers
  • Manage a team of volunteers to ensure they maintain a supportive and safe befriending relationship with their clients
  • To ensure that Equal Opportunities, Safeguarding and other organisational policies and procedures are actively developed and implemented throughout the work
  • Liaise with external organisations to establish good professional working relationships in order to access appropriate referrals and risk assessments for the project.

BEfriend recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds.

We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates as BAME people are currently under-represented in BEfriend.
