Recently graduated with a Psychology degree and fancy joining a national mental health charity to kick start your career? You will build upon your degree to become a specialist in mental health and employment support with a charity recognised by ‘Investors in People’ who will support and develop your career, with heaps of great benefits (including 25 days holidays rising to 28).

The role is covering High Wycombe and Aylesbury, so you will ideally be a driver. You will be working with people that have been referred across from the local IAPT service, who will typically have mild to moderate conditions such as anxiety, depression, phobias, OCD or PTSD. The clients you work with will fall into 2 categories of employed and unemployed. Those employed will be going through a difficult time at work, and might already be signed off sick.

Here your role will be to work with them to help them either return to work – providing advice and guidance which could include communicating to their line managers about a change in conditions, work place bullying or reasonable adjustments. Or you will support them in finding them a new role. This will be delivered one to one, and may involve the odd evening to work to individuals diaries. For clients unemployed, you will deliver regular employability workshops covering a range of areas such as confidence building, CV writing, interview techniques and job searching.

You will receive 15 days’ worth of specialist government training, followed by 20 days of in service training – meaning you will get a really good grounding. To apply, you must be a Psychology graduate with some experience of working with clients with mental health support needs (voluntary or paid). Please apply via this advert. If you would like to find out more first, or by chance have applied and not heard back, please call the office and ask for Lawrence (contact number on the Red 5 Solutions website).
