NHS Talking Therapies for Depression and Anxiety Team Lead and Employers Service Team Lead

Hi, I’m Julie. As Working Towards Well-being Team Lead, I am responsible for overseeing all areas of employment service delivery, staff recruitment, training, and employment service development and progression.

Co-ordinating the day-to-day delivery of a person-centred approach to ensure that all referrals to the Employment Services are treated equally without discrimination and that contractual responsibilities are adhered to.

Continually working on establishing excellent working relationships with local employers, statutory and charitable organisations to identify and source future funding opportunities to sustain the future of the service.  I am very much a “hands” on team lead and hold a caseload of clients myself.

I have been employed by Osel for over twenty years and I am passionate and proud of the work and services provided as an Organisation.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time socialising with family and friends, taking our puppy out and
attending training sessions. I also enjoy listening to a variety of music, cooking and baking with the
latter needing improvement!

The beach is my all time happy place whether it be Summer or Winter!

Employment Advisor within Talking Therapies and Secondary Care

From a young age I was lucky to have many holidays on the Isle of Wight with my parents.  I made the decision to move here and arrived in January 2021 to start a new chapter in my life. I am enjoying exploring the beaches around the island and collecting shells to draw and paint. My hobbies include growing herbs to make herbal teas, cooking/baking with experimental ingredients and  yoga.

I now support people who are looking to return to, or find new work.  This can be either paid work or voluntary work, as well as helping individuals update their skills set with new training and education.

I work alongside the Talking Therapies Team two days a week and alongside Secondary Mental Health once a week
