Direct Help and Support team members

We're looking for passionate and experienced team members to support the parents and carers of children and young people living with learning difficulties. There are two posts, one full-time and one part-time, and both are key roles within our organisation.

Working within our Direct Help and Support service, the team members will help The Salvesen Mindroom Centre achieve its vision of a world where 'no mind is left behind' and every young person with a learning difficulty receives the recognition and support they need to fulfill their potential. As a member of the team, you'll provide information, advice and one-to-one support. The full-time post involves telephone and email contact, and may include liaising with professionals on behalf of families. The part-time post also involves support in person or at meetings, and includes some travel.

Full-time team member (35 hours)
£25,000 (pending a pay increase) with 25 days annual leave, plus 8 days public holidays.

Part-time team member (21 hours)
£25,000 (pending a pay increase) pro rata for part-time (FTE 35 hours). We offer 25 days annual leave, plus 8 days public holidays (also on a pro rata basis).

The Salvesen Mindroom Centre operates a contributory pension scheme to which the employer contribution is currently 3%. Mileage allowance is 45p per mile for own car use. We have a confidential conversations service in place for all staff, currently provided by Crossreach. Out of hours work is covered by a TOIL policy.
