The Community links worker programme is funded by Scottish Government and delivered in partnership with GP Practises and the third sector to support people to live well through strengthening connections between community resources and primary care.

We are looking to recruit 6.0 FTE Community Link Workers for Inverclyde who will each work in a GP practice, in an area of deprivation, as part of the practice team and will provide 1:1 person-centred support to people in contact with a GP practice team. This post will work with individuals to enable them to identify personal outcomes and priorities for their health and well-being and link them to local and national support services and activities.

You must have experience of working with people who are experiencing complex social and emotional circumstances, a strong understanding of the challenges faced by people living in areas of deprivation in relation to living well, and extensive effective interpersonal skills in working with people on a 1:1 basis and with organisations.
