Do you want to make a difference?
That’s what we do at Imago.
We help some of the most vulnerable people in society to make changes and improve their wellbeing.
We’re looking for bright, hardworking individuals to join our established service in Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley. It’s a great opportunity to support adults who need extra help for all sorts of reasons to consider what will best improve their health and wellbeing, then make it happen by supporting them to navigate and access health, social care and community services.
It’s a varied role, and you’ll spend time visiting people in their own homes or in community settings, speaking to individuals and families. You’ll also organise and deliver online and face-to-face group activities for adult Carers, bringing them together to experience peer support and take a break from their caring roles.
Navigators bring their own experience to the role. You might have worked in a formal setting, completing assessments and support plans, or directly providing social care or health services.
Perhaps you have worked or volunteered in a community setting or are looking to give something back to your own local community. Or maybe you have personal experience of accessing services for yourself, a relative or friend.
You’ll get to know local services, build networks and work in partnership with other agencies, and will work alongside colleagues in a friendly team so you will feel fully supported. This is a full-time role, and a car driver is essential.
It’s time to make a change.
We offer our employees:
• Inclusive values-based environment
• Competitive remuneration package
• Workplace pension scheme
• Generous 31 days annual leave entitlement plus bank holidays
• Opportunities for hybrid working
• Benenden Health Care
• Death in Service Benefit
• Cycle to Work Scheme
• Employee Supported Volunteering scheme
• Development opportunities
• and more

We proactively seek to increase opportunities for inclusion, and celebrate diversity across our organisation and within communities.
