Aspirations – Employment Support Worker

16 Hours Per Week, £20,846.00 per annum pro-rata 

Base: Chatham (covering Gravesham area)

Contract Length: 30th September 2019

A new opportunity has arisen within North Kent Mind’s Aspirations team for a highly motivated Employment Support Worker. Based in Medway, you will primarily be working to support clients in Gravesham. This role is 16 hours per week.

Aspirations works with people in Kent & East Sussex who have had mental health issues that have been a barrier to work. These include the most difficult to reach people, who are not engaging in any services or where existing services have not been appropriate to their needs. The goal of Aspirations is to engage participants in sustainable education, volunteering, training or employment opportunities.

As a member of the Aspirations team you will be responsible for delivering tailored employment support and wellbeing advice to a caseload of service users whose mental health conditions have prevented them from entering employment. The role will be suited to someone who can reduce these barriers whist increasing wellbeing and social independence. This is based around 1-2-1 work delivered in a community setting building self-esteem and confidence through a range of social inclusion, training and employment activities.

Aspirations is a Building Better Opportunities project, and is funded by the European Social Fund and the Big lottery Fund through the National Lottery.”
