Parents in Mind Service Delivery Manager St Helens

Salary: £26000 FTE
Location: Home-based
Hours: 28
Benefits: 30 days annual leave, auto-enrolment pension
Salary: £26,000 FTE

Parents in Mind are looking for a talented individual to manage Parents in Mind perinatal mental health peer support, in St Helens – initially until April 2023, but with the possibility of extension, subject to funding.  This role is home-based but will include regular meetings (sometimes at short notice) in St Helens, so the ability to travel and a flexible approach to working are essential. The post will be for 28 hours per week.

With some support, the post holder will need to use their excellent networking and people skills to recruit and mobilise local volunteer teams, promote pathways into peer support for new clients, and network with other local services to continually integrate Parents in Mind into their pathways too.

You must have excellent written and oral communication skills and be able to quickly create rapport with commissioners, volunteers, service users, NCT practitioners and a range of staff from local services. An understanding of mental health support is also essential to the post, as you will be the first point of contact for new referrals. This is a complex project, so you must be able to confidently prioritise your own work, be highly organised and able to work independently. In this leading role, the post holder will be an ambassador for the service across the locality, so outstanding relationship building skills are vital. Good IT skills will also be required – including use of Outlook, Word and Excel – and preparing professional quarterly reports for funders will be central to the post. Ideally you will also have the skills to be able to engage with parents via social media.

It is essential for this post that you are, or undertake the training to become, a Parents in Mind peer supporter. This training requires lived experience/close support of another who has experienced mental health difficulties during the transition to parenthood, and the accredited training would be undertaken in addition to your paid hours.

Closing Date: 25 May 2022 23:59
