Mental Health First Aid

Community Keepers is growing and offering opportunities for the training and employment of CARE FACILITATORS to join our team delivering psycho-social support at schools.  We currently partner with 31 schools across Cape Town and the Cape Winelands, but everyone is welcome to join the database and we will connect when we are in your area.
Please share this opportunity and connect us with suitable candidates.
The role of a CARE FACILITATOR is to be the face of Community Keepers in our offices on-site at schools and to be the first point of contact for learners, educators and parents.  Successful candidates will be trained to offer frontline support and to provide administrative assistance to our team of therapists.

CARE FACILITATORS are expected to:

  • be committed to social justice with a heart for children, families and vulnerable communities
  • undergo thorough reference checks and police clearance
  • prioritise confidentiality, adhere to the POPI Act and Data Protection Policies
  • carry out routine tasks including record keeping, filing and data entry to ensure that accurate records are maintained on a day to day basis
  • be literate and numerate, with the capacity and willingness to improve their basic IT skills
  • have good communication skills and be able to deal with sensitive issues appropriately
  • be team players who are capable of working independently and alone on occasion
  • be capable of dealing with immediate emergency situations and respond to changing events on a daily basis
  • participate in regular, formal, structured supervision and appraisals and attend staff meetings and training, when required.

Applicants who are qualified Social Auxiliary Workers registered with SACSSP or have experience working in a care and support setting will have an advantage in the selection process.
