Do you have a long-term respiratory condition?
Have you completed pulmonary rehab or an equivalent programme?
Do you want to change lives?
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Peer Worker who has personal experience of a chronic respiratory condition to support people who use pulmonary rehab services to grow their confidence, skills and motivation to manage their condition effectively in the community. Your personal experience could include any long-term respiratory condition such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Asthma, Chronic Bronchitis, Cystic Fibrosis and Bronchiectasis.
In this role you will work as a part of Enfield’s Pulmonary Rehab Team. As a Peer Worker you will use your personal experience to contribute to the Pulmonary Rehab Programme and inspire people through your own story. The role of the Peer Worker is focused on creating trusting relationships with people who use the service to facilitate regular exercise in a number of locations around Enfield. In addition, you will develop your own in depth knowledge of relevant local community resources and help connect people who use the service to those resources.
We offer excellent opportunities for personal development through training, regularly supervision and appraisals by the Team Manager. We also provide monthly peer-to-peer supervision with Peer Workers across the whole Trust and offer a supportive platform to help you develop your skills.
This position is 12 hours per week on a 12-month fixed-term contract. Job share and flexibility will be considered by mutual agreement.
Please note you can only apply for this role if you have a long-term respiratory condition. All other applications will be rejected.
