1 x Full-time or 2 x Part-time (0.5 wte)

Salary: £23,653

Coastal West Sussex Mind is a local mental health charity committed to raising awareness around and providing high quality support for people who have mental health problems. We are working alongside other organisations within the Pathfinder West Sussex Alliance to enable people with mental health support needs and their carers to improve their mental health and wellbeing. CWSX Mind is now leading a pilot for a new Pathfinder service across the rural Chanctonbury area of West Sussex.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual(s) who enjoys the challenges and rewards of supporting the development of a new and much needed service and is committed to recovery focused and person-centred mental health care. Successful applicants will develop and provide recovery focused 1:1 and group support and learning opportunities across the Chanctonbury area.

The successful candidate(s) will need to have experience of working with people with mental health problems. They will need to be able to work with minimum supervision, have initiative and be able to contribute to the direction and development of the services within the organisation. They will also need to have proven skills, knowledge and abilities around developing and maintaining effective partnerships with other agencies.

Given the rural nature of the service successful applicants must have a full UK driving licence and an independent means of transport in order to fulfil the role (mileage will be paid for travel).

We are happy to consider applications for either a full-time or part-time (0.5) position. Please indicate in your application whether you are applying for a full time or part time post.

The closing date for applications is mid-day Wednesday 6th March 2019

Interviews will be on Monday 18th March 2019
