Penumbra is a leading mental health charity providing community based recovery support to around 1800 people each week across Scotland, using our IROC and HOPE wellbeing toolkit. Our range of support services include 1st response (crisis), self-harm projects, 1:1 keyworking, groupwork, alcohol related brain injury recovery, and supported living and accommodation. Our teams manage the Edinburgh Crisis Centre and the Moray Mental Health and Wellness Centre, and we are one of the third sector partners of Distress Brief Intervention. Penumbra hosts the Scottish Recovery Network and we are an alliance member of Future Pathways.

Around Scotland, we employ 400 people and our most recent staff survey revealed that 95% of colleagues would recommend Penumbra as a good place to work. We are proud that 20% of our workforce are employed in peer support roles where colleagues use lived experience to support people to recovery.
We provide a wide range of services which offer hope and practical steps towards recovery, and we campaign to increase public knowledge about mental health and to influence government policy.
Penumbra envisages a society where people with mental health problems expect recovery and are accepted, supported and have the resources to fulfil their potential. This vision is an overarching view of what we are trying to achieve through the activities and services of Penumbra.
So, do you feel passionately about providing compassionate and non-judgemental recovery support to a diverse range of people? If you want to be part of a skilled, supported and valued team with one of Scotland’s largest mental health charities that puts people at the heart of what we do, then we want to hear from you.
Within the organisation there are a variety of different roles – Volunteers, Peer Workers, Recovery Workers, Recovery Practitioners, Assistant Managers and Managers.
