Who are we?

Shaw Trust is a progressive charity on an exciting journey to help five times more people over the next five years. For over 30 years we have supported disabled and disadvantaged people to make positive changes to their lives through training and employment, and our ambitious plans need the right people to help us transform many more lives, in many more ways.

What we do is exciting, fulfilling and diverse and it’s about to get even better. As well as employment services, we work with kids in schools, help offenders in prisons, and empower people to take part in activities that many of us would take for granted.

Working with us gives you far more benefits than a standard package; it gives you the chance to help turn someone’s life around.

What we need?

Generating project referrals, supporting frontline delivery staff in understanding and brokering routes into a wide range of existing services to support our client group, liaising with primary health care professionals, checking in on progress and supporting our activity to evidence the outcomes of the service are all important facets of the job – a job that makes a real difference in the lives of people. You are the person who can help individuals access the right help at the right time. As Primary Care Connector you will understand their communities and the wide range of services available within them. They are passionate about getting it right, able communicators and focused on using their experience to connect people with the help they need in their own communities.

This role is perfect for individuals with experience of working within a community mental health and or wellbeing setting. A practical understanding of primary and secondary care with the ability to champion and embrace change would be useful. The successful candidate will have a solution focussed approach, be highly organised and be able to deliver to agreed service specifications and outcomes.
