FEAT is seeking two Employment Specialists to use the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) approach, working in partnership with Fife Health and Social Care and with clients with complex and enduring mental health conditions across Fife. IPS is a proven way of helping people, who have had mental ill health, back to work.
The successful candidates will proactively manage a caseload of individuals who are unemployed and/or currently off work. You will deliver the IPS evidence-based model of vocational rehabilitation for people with complex and enduring mental health problems. Working directly with all relevant stakeholders: the individual, NHS Fife, Fife Council, GPs, employers, colleges, Job Centre Plus and Occupational Health to enable individuals to gain and retain employment. The roles will be based in their offices in Glenrothes, though you are also expected to carry out a proportion of work in NHS inpatient/outpatient settings and in the community around Fife, with patients with complex mental health conditions, on a one-to-one basis.
