We are seeking a motivated, creative and confident individual for the post of Development Worker in our innovative project to establish a network of peer support groups and deliver specialist support for people in prison, secure units or Immigration Removal Centres who hear voices, see visions or have other unusual sensory experiences.
We are looking for someone with excellent interpersonal skills, flexibility and the awareness to work well in challenging environments. You will have experience of facilitating Hearing Voices or similar peer support groups; an excellent awareness of current issues in mental health and/or detention settings; an in-depth understanding of the principles and practice of HVN Hearing Voices Groups and a strong commitment to user-led initiatives.
This is a permanent post, for year one of a three-year project. The other years are dependent on funding and we are awaiting results of this year’s cycle. We are hoping to fill the post for three years, giving the right person an opportunity to develop an established and renowned project.
Applications are particularly welcome from those with personal experience of hearing voices, seeing visions or having other extra sensory experiences.
