Mental Wellbeing Practitioner

Salary: £23,836 per annum
Working hours: 37.5 hours per week
Contract: Permanent
Based at: Tameside

The Big Life group are looking for a motivated and experienced practitioner to join our Minds Matter service in Tameside and Glossop.

You’ll be highly-organised and able to prioritise your workload. Ideally, you’ll have experience of working in an IAPT service or similar field, but above all you’ll be passionate about changing lives.

If that sounds like you, then you could be just what we’re looking for! Your job will be to use person-centred and relationship based practice to support clients to achieve goals and overcome the barriers that stop them improving their mental wellbeing.

The Minds Matter service offers support, advice and guidance to people whose mental wellbeing may be negatively affected by their social circumstances. It is delivered from community venues across Tameside and Glossop, and work in partnership with a range of NHS and community organisations.

All Mental Wellbeing Practitioners will take part in our new training programme delivered by Salford University. This is part of an exciting project, led by Big Life, to develop a new type of multi-skilled worker. The training package will teach you to provide assessments and interventions from various fields to help you to achieve better outcomes for the people using your service.

We welcome applications from people with personal experience of mental health conditions.
