With an annual turnover of £4M, over 150 staff and 260 volunteers, we are one of the largest charities in the Mind network.

The opportunity to change minds. The power to change lives.

Our new Hospital to Home Service will work closely with Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust to support hospital discharges and enable patients to feel settled and supported in their community.

This is an incredibly rewarding role where you will have the opportunity to improve the lives of your clients, to give them hope and direction. You will support their recovery journey by enabling them to settle more quickly into their homes and communities.

This is a challenging role, so you’ll need to be organised, resilient, empathetic, adaptable and dedicated to supporting the adjustment from hospital to home in a smooth transition. As a people person, you’ll build good rapport with your clients, gaining a real understanding of their key needs and their aspirations, and support them to achieve their goals.

If you’re looking for a career where you can make a positive difference to the lives of people needing mental health support and create a fairer, more inclusive society in a role where no two days are the same, apply today.

Staff benefits include

  • a matched contribution pension scheme
  • 25 days' holiday
  • quality supervision and training opportunities.
