Do you have energy, enthusiasm and want to help people get the most out of life? Would you like to gain experience of working with people to improve their physical and/or mental health and wellbeing?
All you need is the perfect environment to put your ability to motivate others to great use.
Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Wellbeing Worker. We help people to have improved mental wellbeing and be better able to look after their health and the things that might affect it. You would help people with multiple or complex health needs who are marginalized and experience the greatest need. That will involve working with a variety of individuals to gather and interpret information relating to their social, physical and psychological needs. We’ll then rely on you to help them access the support they need to maintain and improve their health, well being and independence. Along the way, you’ll build up a good knowledge of local services and community assets and, when necessary, signpost individuals to other agencies.
To succeed, you’ll need to demonstrate an ability to recognise the factors that impact on people’s well being and be able to build relationships with individuals that result in positive health and well being outcomes.
A self-motivated and enthusiastic team player, you’re flexible about working hours too. What's more; you're great at gaining commitment and motivation from others and are able to manage challenging behaviour. You would manage your own case-load, maintain records and evaluate data.
