Peer and Volunteering Services Manager   

At Richmond Borough Mind we place a huge value on our volunteers and greatly appreciate the dedication and enthusiasm that they bring to a diverse variety of roles across our organisation. We regularly support around 150 volunteers a year, who collectively provide thousands of hours of support to our client group, significantly increasing the outreach and support that we are able to offer across our services.  Just as crucially we provide invaluable opportunities for individuals with lived experience of mental health conditions to gain skills and support others with their own experiences, as part of their own recovery and personal development journeys.

This is your opportunity to lead these services for RBMind, to continue to develop and expand our volunteering and peer led opportunities to support our clients, our volunteers and our organisation.

The successful applicant will be enthusiastic and self-motivated, and must be able to work on their own initiative.  You will be experienced in delivering volunteer led services, to be able to guide and support our teams in delivering effective person centred volunteer support.  You will also need to have clear project management skills to support our flexible approach to delivering peer led interventions moving forwards.

Richmond Borough Mind values diversity and difference.  We welcome applicants from all sections of the community, particularly individuals with lived experience of mental health problems.

Peer Services & Engagement Officer

Our peer led services provide individuals with a unique opportunity to offer and receive support in order to improve the quality of their own, and others’, lives.  This is an exciting opportunity to develop and lead these services for RBMind.  Your role will be to coordinate and support our dynamic and exciting team of peer volunteers (who all have their own lived experience of mental health issues), to increase the wellbeing and resilience of our members through providing a programme of group support and activities. Currently our Peer Group Network provides a diverse range of group led peer activities, however, we aim to expand our outreach over the coming year to include alternative peer led interventions for one to one support and peer navigation.

The opportunity also includes a new role for RBMind to lead on our consultations and engagement events across our organisation. We want to listen to our clients to make sure that we are developing our services in line with their needs, so you will be our lead for arranging and delivering a series of events designed to hear from our current, and potential, clients and stakeholders across our range of services.

We are looking for an individual who is passionate about motivating and coaching individuals with mental health issues, and with an understanding of how the recovery approach can support both volunteers and members on their journey to recovery.  Your role will be to coordinate all elements of RBMind’s peer led services and provide leadership and direction to the peer volunteer team, whilst building capacity through successful outreach and strategic development of the service.  As well as having an empathy with the core values of RB Mind, the successful applicant will have experience of supporting volunteers, facilitating groups, and an awareness of the boundaries we work within when supporting vulnerable adults. The applicant will be enthusiastic and self-motivated, and must be able to work on their own initiative.
