About the role

As part of the Community Mental Health Transformation work in Bromley BLG Mind are working in partnership with Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust to develop services to operate as a front-door to mental health support as well as a step-down support for people ready for discharge from secondary care.

This work aims to:

  • Deliver support across both Primary and Secondary Care;

  • Provide support that focuses on both clinical and social needs;
  • Work well as a multi-disciplinary team.

This is a new role requiring excellent leadership, management and partnership working skills. The successful candidate will be required to manage a team of voluntary sector staff and work closely with our partners at Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust and across the local mental health system.

We are looking for a confident manager with strong partnership working and project development skills. Experience of supporting people with mental health problems will be important in this role as will a good understanding of current mental health provision. You will be a key person in maintaining quality within service delivery and maintaining clear communication and representation with clinical teams and team leaders.  Successful applicants will be expected to undergo an Enhanced Level Disclosure and Barring Service check

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.
BLG Mind offer flexibility for hybrid working (some days at home and some in the office) where this supports staff wellbeing and fits with the needs of clients and the charity. As a people-focused organisation, we expect all staff to spend regular time at their work base as part of these arrangements.

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 culturally diverse communities
  • People aged 16-25
  • Disabled people
  • People with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities

BLG Mind is committed to meeting the reasonable adjustments of disabled people, and always welcomes applications from people with lived experience of mental health problems.
