Role Summary:

Wiltshire Mind is a local mental health charity.  Our charity is a busy, well-established service supporting people across the county of Wiltshire.  We offer a number of services to people suffering from poor mental health including Peer Support Groups, 1-1 Counselling, Young People’s Counselling, Polish Counselling, Mental Health Awareness Training and we also have a charity shop.  We are a totally self-funding charity.

We are recruiting an Evening Receptionist/Administrator to support our evening services.  We have recently started a new counselling service within the charity supporting young people aged 11 – 17.  The hours of operation are outside of our usual office hours and we are looking for someone to cover the reception at these times and provide admin support.  The role will involve welcoming clients, making and receiving telephone calls and general administration.  A knowledge of counselling or mental health awareness would be an advantage but is not essential.  The successful candidate will be highly organised and professional with a good working knowledge of Microsoft Office in order to support with the expansion of our existing services. They will also need to have the ability to work on their own initiative.

The role is subject to receiving satisfactory references and a probationary period.

Hours will be 9 hours per week, but there is scope for additional hours in the future, subject to the requirements and demands of a growing service.  We will require a candidate who is flexible to meet with the needs of the charity.
