You’re the person who can help individuals access the right help at the right time. Mental Health Employment Advisers 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.

Working daily with clients, employers and service providers Mental Health Employment Advisers are focused on making sure a person’s journey to employment and better wellbeing is as easy as possible. Brokering existing service and helping to develop new local provision, liaising with primary and secondary health care professionals, checking in on progress and making sure we can 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.

This role is perfect for individuals who have experience either in the employment advice field or as practitioners within a community mental health and/or wellbeing setting, but who are open to additional training and support. In all cases, a practical understanding of primary and secondary care, coupled with the ability to champion and embrace change would be helpful. The successful candidate will have a solution focussed approach, be highly organised and be able to deliver to agreed service specifications and outcomes.
