We are very aware at Mind in Croydon that people really are our main asset. Attracting the right recruits and retaining them is of paramount importance and ensures that our clients get the best possible service. The benefits we can offer are a flexible and genuinely family-friendly environment – many of our staff work part time, some job share and there are opportunities to take time off in lieu in order to fit the requirements of the job around one’s home life. A lot is talked of ‘home life balance’ – at Mind in Croydon this is a reality.

Training and Development

We have a highly trained human resources department which believes that good people management is essential. All staff receive a full induction programme in line with the new ‘Care Standards Act’. This involves both internal induction to all our projects and external visits to related agencies so that staff are familiar with our ‘partners’ within the borough of Croydon, and understand how we work with them. There are regular supervisions, appraisals and staff are fully trained and encouraged to become experts in their field. For example, the head of our Welfare Benefits Service sits as a member of the Appeals Service Tribunal. Recently we have enabled individual members of staff to train for Diplomas in Social Work, Diplomas in Counselling and the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development’s Diploma in Human Resource Management.

We have a number of policies to ensure we meet best practice guidelines generally. It is also our aim to actively encourage diversity in aspects such as ethnicity, age, and disability, to ensure that our staff complement our client group.

We are looking for four Recovery Space Workers for an exciting, innovative venture at Mind in Croydon. We are starting up a new Recovery Space (crisis café) for Croydon Clinical Commissioning Group. This new service is an opportunity to make a real difference, and to give clients the support they need at the time they most need it. The aim of the service is to divert people, who would be better supported elsewhere, away from Accident and Emergency (A&E) and other crisis services in Croydon. The Recovery Space will operate in the evenings with people triaged by the Emergency Department of Croydon University Hospital or from the Crisis Assessment Team (CAT).

We are looking for some exceptional individuals to come and join us in our award-winning local Mind. The Recovery Space which will operate from our social Networking Service in the heart of East Croydon, provides a non-clinical, warm and welcoming setting to support and hold individuals during the evenings. Mind in Croydon will operate the Recovery Space during the hours of 6pm – 11pm 7days/week, 365 days of the year.

These posts are permanent, 36 hours per week, worked on a rota basis with other members of your team. Your skills and experience will be invaluable in this successful venture. You will have solid experience in the mental health field as well as the ability to work and be happy in a team. We offer a supportive environment to staff, with excellent terms and conditions, a pension scheme with Now pensions, and 28 days per annum holiday rising to 33 days after 5 years.

Please note, Mind in Croydon may be getting funding soon for two full time posts in relation to homelessness work. We do not have full details yet, but these would be daytime posts in our Social Networking Service in East Croydon. If you might also be interested in these posts, please let us know in a covering letter, or mention it on your completed application form when you send it in.
