Fife Employment Access Trust have a vacancy within the Employ Your Mind project - an internationally recognised vocational rehabilitation project aimed at developing the employability skills of inpatients and outpatients of Fife mental health services. This specific role involves the design and delivery of group-based and individual employability and personal development interventions, work placement sourcing/support and delivery and design of cognitive remediation therapy (CRT) to a wide range of participants over a 6-month period. The aim of the project is to move the client closer towards increasingly meaningful occupations and accessing more mainstream job-seeking services. The project began in June 2012 and they are confident they will secure funding to continue the project beyond March 2021.
The successful candidate should have some knowledge of CRT and be experienced delivering a range of employability based soft skills to individuals and groups with complex, severe and enduring mental health conditions. The candidate will deliver elements of an accredited training programme, and develop new content for the coursework. The project is Fife based and includes working from home as required. The candidate will also be expected to carry out a proportion of work in NHS inpatient/outpatient venues within Fife, as well as parks and woodland settings with patients with complex mental health conditions, on a one-to-one basis.
