What does ‘emotional health and wellbeing’ mean to you? What do you think it could mean for young people?

Over the last decade there has been a significant decline in the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people, with CAMHS recording an increase in referrals; in the first quarter of 2023, 10,500 children and young people were referred in Scotland. With a significant need to widen awareness of mental health and wellbeing within schools to support young people, SCCR’s Emotional Health and Wellbeing Lead plays a vital role within the team. You will be taking our work to young people, playing a role in reducing conflict situations that lead relationships to breakdown and mental health to suffer.

About the service

Cyrenians’ Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution is a National Resource Centre for best practice in conflict resolution, mediation and early intervention work with a particular focus on young people and families. Our award-winning digital resources, free training and events improve understanding of conflict and emotional needs, to transform relationships and lives.

About the role

This role will ensure that the SCCR continues to evolve and extend its reach. You will:

  • Engage with young people to review and develop our services, ensuring their voices are heard
  • Deliver workshops and presentations, and contribute to our range of digital resources
  • Maintain and develop working relationships with schools and other youth organisations
  • Monitor and report on the progress of our work

About you

We are seeking a committed and self-motivated individual with experience in conflict resolution, research, psychology and creative practices. You should be able to demonstrate the ability to work under your own initiative, while also working in a team environment.

  • Flexible and creative in your approach
  • Able to demonstrate our values of compassion, respect, integrity, and innovation in the work that you do.
