Support in Mind Scotland is the lead partner in the Highlands for the Scottish Government’s Distress Brief Intervention project (DBI). The DBI is a Scotland-wide pilot project, testing a ground-breaking approach to addressing the emotional and psychological pain experienced by people in distress. Working in partnership with frontline services (including Police, Ambulance, Primary Care and Emergency Departments) and with third sector support organisations, the project provides rapid referral to focussed, short-term support, with the option of onward referral to longer-term support if required.
This post is an opportunity to join this major, high profile Scottish Government project in a key role. We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated person to join our team of DBI Coordinators in Inverness. Coordinators provide support, advice and personal support planning for people referred from front-line services, carrying out short-term work with people in distress to review the reasons for their distress, develop immediate coping strategies and link them into a range of appropriate community services and facilities.
The post is based in Inverness and is funded until March 2021.
The post holder will be required to join the PVG Scheme.
We have a vacancy for an HR Project Manager to join our friendly team at our National Office in Edinburgh. Working closely with colleagues, the post holder will set-up and embed efficient and effective procedures for HR record-keeping. The successful candidate will be computer literate and have previous experience of working in an office environment. S/he will have excellent interpersonal skills, coupled with the ability to work as part of a team. An understanding of mental health issues would be an advantage.
