Project - Manchester Mind Advice Team.
Length of Post - Initially 12 months (with possible extension after this time).

Manchester Mind has a small but experienced Advice Team who deliver Welfare Benefits, Housing and basic debt advice to people who are experiencing or at risk of mental health issues.

You would be based with the Advice Team in the Zion Centre but expected to deliver a mixture of drop-in and appointments on the in-patient wards.

We are looking for an advice worker who not only has significant advice work skills but also experience of working with people with mental health issues. You will need to be able to confidently work on your own but have good partnership development skills.
