Thank you for your interest in working with Lancashire Mind. We have a range of roles across the organisation, requiring a variety of different skills.
For many of our roles, you don't need a background in mental health; a passion for improving mental health and wellbeing across Lancashire is what's important. Some of our job roles require significant travel across the county of Lancashire; we reimburse all travel expenses for journeys that are made during your working day, whether this is on public transport or by car.
Working for Lancashire Mind means you'll benefit from a 35-hour working week (or less if the role is part-time); flexible start/finish and lunch times; 25 days annual leave, plus bank holidays (pro-rata for part-time staff); a sick pay scheme; up to 5 days paid emergency leave to care for dependents (pro-rata for part-time staff); a workplace wellbeing scheme, including taking time out of the working day for wellbeing activities; learning and development opportunities. Our current team members will tell you that the biggest plus is joining a team who are passionate and committed to making a difference to the lives of others.
Job title: CYP Project Coordinator
Hours: part-time, 28 hours per week (Temporary until 31 July 2021 with possibility of extension dependent on funding)
Salary: NJC points 14 (£22,462) to 19 (£24,799) (pay award pending)
Responsible to: CYP Project Lead or Community Development Lead
Location: working from home initially due to covid-19 restrictions but usually based in Chorley, with extensive travel across Lancashire
During the national lockdown, we had to put a lot of our programmes on hold. Now that schools are back in and we can be more flexible with our provision, we want to continue to support our existing cohorts of young people, whilst expanding our reach to others.
Over the next six months we have projects that we need to get back on track and new projects to start so we’re looking to increase the capacity of our team by employing two CYP Project Coordinators.
The Project Coordinators will work alongside our dedicated staff to plan, coordinate, deliver and evaluate our programmes. We need people who are comfortable and confident with both virtual, online delivery and face-to-face delivery. You should have some experience of working with children and/or young people and an understanding of the barriers they face to achieving mental wellbeing.
Ideally, you will have had some experience of working with schools although this is not essential, but it is important that you have a good understanding of safeguarding children and professional boundaries. Some experience of project planning, coordination and delivery is required.
We are looking for people who can work collaboratively and flexibly to cover the full range of programmes delivered by our CYP and Community Development Teams.
Deadline for applications: 9am on 16 November 2020. Interviews for this post are scheduled to take place on 23 and 24 November 202- please keep this date free in your diary as alternatives can not be offered.
