Assistant Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners vacancy
- £18,500 for period of contract
- Full Time 37.5 hours
- Fixed term contracts for 6 months
- Roles are based in Great Yarmouth, King’s Lynn and Norwich
This is an exciting time to be joining Mind and becoming part of the partnership with the Norfolk & Suffolk Mental Health Foundation Trust delivering services within the provision of the Norfolk and Waveney Wellbeing Service. The service is commissioned by the five CCG areas to help people with mild to moderate mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. The jointly-managed service operates in line with the ‘stepped care’ model and the delivery of NICE approved psychological therapies ensuring smooth transitions between Steps 2 and 3. Services are provided from bases in King’s Lynn, Great Yarmouth, Wymondham and Norwich for people aged 16 and over. The successful applicants will be committed to delivering excellent support to those accessing the Wellbeing Service, be able to work within a team and be responsive and adaptive to change.
The service operates flexible working hours – 8am to 8pm.
We are looking for 5 people across Norfolk and Waveney to conduct telephone reviews for clients waiting for treatment and for those that have attended workshops and who may require further support to determine the best course of treatment with the guidance of experienced supervisors. The successful candidates will also support the delivery of educational workshops attended by people living with anxiety and depression.
There may be opportunities in the future to apply for a trainee role as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP).
We are looking for people who have energy and enthusiasm. A good understanding or experience of mental health along with experience of supporting others is desirable but not essential. The jobs also involve collecting and analysing feedback from clients for further service development, so good IT skills are also essential. All candidates should have excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
If you want to make a difference to other people’s lives and be part of the team shaping mental health services in Norfolk and Waveney we would love to hear from you.
Closing date: 21 October 2018
