Bank Support Workers

£7.60 per hour   based in Hull 

We are looking to recruit a pool of casual support workers who we can ask to undertake shifts for us on an ‘as and when’ basis.

This is an ideal ‘stepping stone’ for someone who wishes to move into a role supporting vulnerable adults but doesn’t have much experience.

The work would be based in one of our supported houses in West Hull which is operated 24/7 and the shifts are generally 12 hour day or evening shifts. This work involves supporting clients in collaboration with colleagues, ensuring our houses are maintained to a high standard, some administration and acting as a point of contact for our residents and other callers.

You must be confident in dealing autonomously with challenging situations and out of hours’ enquiries.

Because of the nature of the work, all our support staff are subject to an Enhanced DBS Disclosure.

Freelance CBT Therapists

£30-35 per hour (dependent on experience)

An exciting opportunity has arisen for  experienced  CBT Therapists to work with Hull and East Yorkshire Mind on a self-employed basis to support adults, children and adolescents across Hull and the East Riding.

Essential Criteria

These are criteria all applicants MUST be able to demonstrate either at short listing or at interview. Applicants should therefore make it clear within their application whether or not they meet these criteria. Failure to do so may result in you not being shortlisted. The criteria are stated below:

  • Post-graduate Doctorate level training in Clinical or Counselling Psychology or Post-graduate diploma course accredited with the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP)
  • Have completed regular supervision post-qualifying for CBT practice with a BABCP accredited supervisor and engaged in regular supervision for CBT practice.

This is a freelance role and applicants must be able to commit to a minimum of one evening per week.  Successful candidates will offer weekly therapy sessions to young people aged 10-18 years and adults, in addition to providing parental support.

The young people / adults you will be working with typically present with anxiety, low mood or behavioural management difficulties. Causes of anxiety include separation anxiety, exam stress, social phobia, difficulties relating to peers, OCD and worry. Behavioural difficulties can be related to learning difficulties which make concentrating on tasks more difficult and can lead to anxiety, low self-esteem, frustration and anger.
