Job title: Senior Wellbeing Development Officer
Hours: Full time, 35 hours per week
Remuneration: £30,000 pa
Deadline: 5pm, Monday 18th January 2021

Are you passionate about mental health and wellbeing? Want to really make a difference and help us shape our charitable support for healthcare workers on the frontline?
We are looking for a qualified mental health and wellbeing professional to further develop our services for pharmacists and pharmacy students.
Pharmacist Support – the pharmacy profession’s independent charity – embarked on delivery of a new five-year strategy back in January 2020 and as part of its development is looking to recruit a Senior Wellbeing Development Officer with a passion for creating positive impact. Responsible for the development and delivery of the charity’s proactive and reactive mental health and wellbeing support, this role will play a crucial part in the next phase of our wellbeing service development.
Guided by our fresh new vision and mission – to champion the wellbeing of our pharmacy family – and building on existing support and relationships, you will drive forward an effective offer that supports our service user journey and the referral pathways into our services. You will assist the services team with emotional wellbeing related queries, and working alongside the Marketing & Communications team, will help to raise awareness of the importance of wellbeing and maximise the impact of our work.
In line with the volunteer strategy and in conjunction with the Volunteer Officer (whom you will line manage), you will also support the recruitment, training and development of volunteers, enabling us to support more individuals to improve their wellbeing.
What we’re looking for
We are seeking an imaginative individual with a creative approach to problem solving and proven experience in the design and delivery of new initiatives to support wellbeing. The ideal candidate will have a relevant professional qualification (i.e. counselling, psychology, mental health) and experience in developing and delivering training and workshops.
You’ll be a great time manager and an effective leader, but more importantly you’ll be able to demonstrate the qualities that build trust and foster good relationships that will enable you to connect and interact well with both the team and our clients.
As our Senior Wellbeing Development Officer, you’ll have a positive and organised approach to work. You will be empathic, have good listening skills and be supportive with vulnerable clients. You’ll enjoy working collaboratively, yet also be able to act decisively and on your own initiative.
How we work
One of our four values as an organisation is ‘people first’ and we start with our team. We offer flexible working and have embarked on development of a new approach to reward and recognition. We offer:
- Flexible working. We understand that everyone’s situation is different, and are open to discuss different working hours/working patterns.
- Place of work: Manchester or homebased
- Holiday: 25 days (plus Bank holidays)
- Benefits: Death in Service Benefit (4 times salary), Pension Scheme, Comprehensive sick pay
- Personal and Professional Development opportunities as well as the opportunity to take part in wellbeing activities.
Interested? Bring your expertise and we’ll provide the supportive, friendly environment to enable you to grow and develop your skills!
