Purpose of Role:

Our Project- CHATS (Community Health Awareness Training Services) has been set up by a former Asylum seeker. As a result of culture, faith and stigma, BAME Mental Health sufferers especially Refugee and Asylum seekers usually do not seek help until at crisis stage. This is due to lack of support, training and understanding by both organisations and impacted individuals

The role will suit an individual who enjoys delivering a varied portfolio of projects, often being deployed at short notice to provide the necessary support to shape, drive and deliver projects.

Role Description:

· To develop, design and deliver high quality projects on behalf of the organisation.

· Scoping and development of project proposals and plans for both internal purposes and business growth activities, including providing advice to colleagues.

The individual may be involved in several projects. As such there is the opportunity to gain significant experience in the full range of sector based activities and develop an experience on deploying best practice in project management to deliver demanding projects on time, within budget and to funders/clients expectations.

We are asking for a commitment of at least 3 - 6 months

This opportunity is home-based, but may involve trips to the office

Skills and Qualifications:
