About Development Worker – Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

Are you enthusiastic about empowering people to promote good mental health and suicide prevention awareness within the voluntary and community sector including sports groups?

We need a new Development worker who will engage with a range of identified organisations and enable their workers and volunteers to:

  • Understand the need to promote mental health across their contacts
  • Access training, develop mental health policies and action plans
  • Signpost to ongoing advice and support

A commitment to the promotion of good mental health and an interest in supporting groups is essential. Our target groups will be local Voluntary and community groups, football clubs, gyms and boxing clubs and identified workplaces.

You will need excellent communication skills, and an aptitude for learning. You must be self motivated and able to work independently within an agreed framework. You will be self-supporting so must be fully computer literate. You will need to be able to work flexible hours and to travel across Derby and Derbyshire. Posts will be based at our office in Long Eaton with the possibility of hot-desking with a partner organisation in the north of the county.
