You’ll also be responsible for establishing and maintaining positive links with community mental health teams (CMHRS), partner organisations, local employers and other relevant agencies promoting the service model and highlighting the importance of employment AS a recovery tool.
Additionally, you will have responsibility for maintaining efficient admin systems to ensure referrals, assessments and reviews are completed in a timely manner.
You will ideally need to have a good understanding of working with individuals with mental ill health and the issues and barriers this can create for the people we support.
