We positively welcome applications from people with a lived experience of either mental health conditions or learning disabilities and people who represent diverse communities.

West London Mental Health NHS Trust is committed to eliminating discrimination for all groups and achieving equality of opportunity regardless of age, disability, gender, race, religion or belief and sexuality. We aim to create a workforce that is representative of the community it serves at all levels of seniority within the Trust. We are therefore particularly interested in receiving applications from people from ethnic minority backgrounds’.

West London Mental Health NHS provides a comprehensive range of services for people experiencing various mental health problems.

Physical activity is a valued part of the daily rehabilitation programme and takes place either on our on-site gymnasiums/sports halls or in nearby community facilities.

Due to re-structuring a vacancy has arisen within the Physical Activity Team. The team provides opportunities for patients cared for within the range of inpatient services based at the Ealing site, and for people receiving support from the nearby community services.

You will be a highly motivated individual who can plan and manage your own workload but also work within a variety of teams to better meet service needs. Ideally with a range of experience, you will have the ability to adapt activities and provide innovative solutions to the challenges encountered in the sphere of work.

You’ll need to be able to demonstrate personal involvement and an enthusiastic commitment to a physically active lifestyle. A degree in Sports Science/Coaching and/or fitness instruction is essential. A BACR (British Association of Cardiac Rehabilitation) Phase 4 is highly desirable, although not essential as training will be provided.
