Organisation: Every Life Matters
Salary Details: £20,400 (£25,500 FTE)
Closing date for applications: 8 Jun 2020
Hours: Part time – 30 hours per week (option to extend to full time – please call to discuss)
We are looking to recruit a Suicide Bereavement Service Co-ordinator who can deliver flexible and person centred support to individuals in the early stages of bereavement across Cumbria, to manage referrals to the service, and to ensure appropriate signposting to service partners. The post holder will also line manage a Bereavement Support Worker, who will cover one-to-one support work in areas furthest from the Co-ordinator’s base, and a small team of volunteers who will support service delivery.
This is an exciting opportunity for a suitably skilled individual to help shape an exciting new service in the County for those bereaved or affected by suicide. We are looking for a highly resilient individual, with relevant experience of frontline support work, who is able to support traumatised and distressed individuals, families and communities in a person centred and highly compassionate manner. And though the service will work with relatively small numbers of people its work will have a high impact.
The core hours of the post are 30 per week. However, we may have the option to extend hours to full time for the right candidate through roles on other projects. The post holder will work across a large area of Cumbria and will be either home or office based dependant on their location.
