Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind, Mindful Mums Project Worker (Bromley)
About the role
Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind is a highly regarded local charity, helping people to be mentally healthy and working together with those experiencing mental health problems and dementia to improve their quality of life. With an annual turnover of £5M, over 150 staff and 200 volunteers, we are one of the largest charities in the Mind network.
Delivered through funding from the London Borough of Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group, BLG Mind’s award-winning Mindful Mums Programme aims to prevent pregnant and new mums from developing mental health problems during the perinatal period (pregnancy to 1 year). The service has delivered support to over 2,000 women within the last five years.
We are looking for a Project Worker to maintain and develop the provision of online and in-person Mindful Mums support within the London Borough of Bromley. Whilst the role is focused on service delivery in Bromley, you will be involved in all aspects of the project, with specific responsibility for the administration, recruitment and training of all volunteer mums who have lived through their own perinatal mental health problems.
Your exceptional organisation skills will support the successful delivery of the project, ensuring that robust volunteer administration procedures are in place. You will be an effective communicator with experience of supporting and training volunteers within community based services. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a dynamic, collaborative and friendly team.
This role would ideally suit a parent who has successfully managed their own perinatal mental health problems
Successful applicants will be expected to undergo an Enhanced Level Disclosure and Barring Service check.
We recognise the importance of having a diverse and inclusive work force, and would therefore particularly welcome applications from the following, currently under-represented, groups:
• People from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds
• Young people
• Disabled people
• People with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities
BLG Mind is committed to meeting the reasonable adjustments of disabled people.
BLG Mind always welcomes applications from people with lived experience of mental health problems.
Staff benefits include a matched contribution pension scheme, 25 days' holiday (pro-rata, rising with service), quality supervision and training opportunities. See our website for more reasons to work for Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind.
