About Shaw Trust 

“86% of our colleagues say we demonstrate a true commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion”

At Shaw Trust we believe everyone has the right to live a decent and dignified life and an opportunity for rewarding work. We are a social purpose organisation challenging inequality and breaking down barriers to enable social mobility.

For us being part of the solution is about creating the conditions for this to happen, advocating and delivering services that make a real difference. Working in partnership not competition, we are part of an eco-system of purpose-led organisations, striving for a fairer, more equal society centred on opportunity for all.

Role Purpose

We are looking for a Health and Wellbeing Practitioner to work alongside our Support Managers and the Work and Health Programme team to support the wellbeing of participants and staff on the Work & Health Programme.

As a Health and Wellbeing Practitioner for WHP, you will be developing and delivering a holistic health and wellbeing approach to help progress participants closer to the labour market.

The role holder will be expected to work closely with frontline Support Managers, taking a holistic approach to supporting their caseload of participants to gain employment through better management and self-management of their physical and/or mental health and wellbeing needs. You will advise and guide Support Managers to effectively signpost participants to mental health and wellbeing support where required. This will be mainly delivered remotely via phone, video conference and other digital channels, however the role will cover West London, therefore a working knowledge or connection to this area is beneficial.

The role will also involve re-building participant confidence and self-efficacy following unemployment through a range of health specific programmes such as managing anxiety, stress management, pain management, as well as self-management techniques that will support the re - entry and sustainment of employment.

The ideal candidate will need to be inclusive and embrace our culture and values, putting those we serve at the heart of everything we do. You will consistently deliver high quality services to support our communities and beneficiaries.
