Join the team - Link Worker - Outreach

Friday, April 8, 2022

HIVE Portsmouth works with individuals, communities and other organisations to improve the health and well being of people in Portsmouth.   Key partners include health and care statutory organisations with the city and the hundreds of voluntary, community and social enterprise groups (VCSE) who play a pivotal role in supporting local people.  We actively support and develop the VCSE sector within the city and enable and support social action on issues that face people within Portsmouth.  

This new role is a key position within a pilot project to strengthen the links between community and primary care health services and the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector through offering an outreach service, working closely with the existing HIVE Portsmouth community helpdesk. The Link Worker will support people to manage their health and wellbeing by accessing community and voluntary services and will work closely with health and social care colleagues to identify non-medical alternatives to traditional care.

We are looking for someone who has, or can demonstrate how they will acquire, an in-depth knowledge of community and VCSE services within Portsmouth. The role requires excellent organisational and record keeping skills, an awareness of the pressures facing health and care services and a commitment to HIVE Portsmouth’s charitable objectives.  The postholder must be passionate about supporting the sector, demonstrating the impact of the sector, and creating capacity to strengthen the sector. Being solution focused is key. We’re working to reduce demand on formal health and care services and are looking for someone to confidently suggest credible alternatives to these services to help people achieve their goals.
