The Bromley by Bow Centre is a dynamic and innovative charity operating in East London. Over the past 30 years it has transformed the lives of people who come from some of the most deprived estates in the UK.

We are looking for a Community Connector (Mental Health) to work across Networks 5 and 6 in Tower Hamlets. The Community Connector will be embedded in the Bromley by Bow Integrated Social Prescribing service and part of a wider team of voluntary sector, primary care and secondary care staff in the Community Mental Health Team.

The Community Connector will support people with serious mental illness (SMI) including symptoms of anxiety or depression, or a diagnosis of schizophrenia to achieve better mental health and wellbeing, increasing independence and reducing reliance on services.

How to apply

We believe that being a diverse organisation that is truly committed to being anti-racist will create the best outcomes for the community we work with. We are therefore actively seeking applicants from ethnic minority backgrounds and the LGBTQ+ community for this role.

You may not have experience of everything listed in this job spec, but don’t let that put you off applying; if you have some relevant experience and think you’d be a good fit for the role and the Bromley by Bow Centre we’d love to hear from you.

Please let us know how we can make the recruitment process more accessible for you or if would like us to send you the job pack in a different format by emailing People@bbbc.org.uk.
