The Brock is a charity and social enterprise in Broxburn, West Lothian. We believe in a society where every individual with a mental health condition feels included, supported and valued. The Brock offers stimulating opportunities to socialise, build friendships, have a sense of belonging and increase confidence. We are based in a boutique garden centre, which includes the community Mind Garden, wood workshop and craft room. Where we offer oppertunities to learn new skills in horticulture, woodwork, landscaping projects and a variety of crafts.

We are now seeking a facilitator to join our team. The tasks are very varied, and for the first year the postholder will have a split focus between outreach and supporting the garden centre.

Having the right mind-set, attitude and approach is as important to us as having the right experience and qualifications.

If you have

  • the necessary skills to engage with our service users;
  • have practical skills and knowledge in garden maintenance and an interest in plant care;
  • have the resilience to respond to ever changing personal needs and business priorities;
  • and want to contribute to providing a non-judgemental safe space for people with chronic mental health conditions,

then you may be the ideal candidate.

We welcome everyone interested to arrange an informal visit before the closing date, where we can explain the service and answer any questions you may have.

We will ask the successful candidate to complete a level 3 Understanding Mental Health course. Occasional weekend working is required. When appropriate, you will drive the project vehicle.

The successful applicant for this post will be required to obtain membership of the PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) Scheme.
