Temporary Wellbeing Advisor – 1 year contract
£22,373 - £27,049 per annum, full time, plus essential car user allowance
Spelthorne Borough Council is seeking to appoint a Wellbeing advisor.
As a Wellbeing Advisor, through referrals by GP’s and other healthcare professionals, you will work with residents to identify their needs and requirements and link them to community groups that can help them to become more independent, physically active, increase their skill base, to obtain advice or to become more socially connected and to signpost to relevant services that will help them to generally lead a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle.
Through prescribing, you will empower people to take control of their health and wellbeing by focussing on what matters to them and take a holistic approach, connecting people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support. Referrals may be made for any one of several reasons, including inactive lifestyles, loneliness and isolation, anxiety, financial concerns, poor nutrition, and those struggling with daily routine.
You will need to be calm, reassuring, personable and empathetic when working supporting residents, as well as being honest, reliable and flexible in providing the support and direction required. You will also be able to tailor your approach to communicate information effectively.
You will be organised, able to work independently and manage your time well to ensure you are able to meet changing workloads. You will also be confident in the use of ICT and in completing notes and spreadsheets accurately.
In return we offer excellent conditions of service, with a benefits package that includes a pension scheme and at least 23 days’ paid leave per year.
A full driving licence and access to a car is essential for this role.
The post will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (formerly criminal records) check.
