You have a background in business/industry and/or education and are used to helping to integrate disadvantaged or disabled people into the labour market. All you need is the perfect environment to put your skills to great use. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as an Employment Adviser.

Richmond Fellowship are delighted to be working to deliver the roll out of Individual Placement and Support (IPS) services as part of the NHS England initiative for extending IPS support to some of the most disadvantaged people in the employment market place. We will be working on behalf of Wiltshire, Swindon, and Bath & North East Somerset (BaNES) Clinical Commissioning Groups to create a new single service across their geographical footprint by building on the existing success of our Wiltshire IPS Service which is now recognised as a Centre of Excellence in IPS delivery.

Alongside the existing Wiltshire Team we will be creating two new teams – one in Swindon and one in Bath (covering Bath and North East Somerset) – who together will work as a single service across this Clinical Commissioning footprint. As Employment Adviser, you will focus on motivating, supporting and providing person-centred advice and guidance to people receiving support to enable them to move into suitable and sustainable work. As well as a good understanding of people with mental health problems, you have experience of networking/liaising with local employers and the initiative to develop and promote a service.

Excellent motivational, presentation and listening skills are essential, as is a willingness to travel in the local area and occasionally work outside of office hours. Customer focused, well organised and collaborative in approach, you’re a great administrator too. Indeed, you pride yourself on your word processing skills and ability to keep accurate computer records/use a database.

The salary for this post is £21,198.00 per annum.

This is a rolling recruitment process, shortlisted candidates will be interviewed as and when they apply.

So, are you ready to take on this rewarding role that comes with some really great benefits, including a smartphone? Apply now via our website.

Richmond Fellowship is part of Recovery Focus, a national group of charities highly experienced in providing specialist support services to individuals and families living with the effects of mental ill health, drug and alcohol use, gambling and domestic violence. We know that recovery can look and feel very different to each and every one of us. But we also know that if we provide the right support, at the right time, we can inspire recovery nationwide and that recovery is possible for everyone.
