Gateway is Recruiting: Administration Officer

Hi all,

As some of you will already know we have some recruitment coming up in Gateway.

We are delighted to be in a position to recruit for a part-time Administration Officer to help support the day to day operations, communications and administration of Gateway.  This will be a great help to ensure the smooth running of the project.

As you know Gateway is a peer led and peer run project so we would particularly welcome applications from people with expertise resulting from lived experience of mental health difficulties.

We will be holding an Information Session for any Gateway Members who are interested in finding out a bit more on Thursday 27th April, 1pm-2pm, where we will discuss the role and the process for applying.

Below is the advert and job spec for those interested in applying and they are also available on Mental Health Ireland's website.  See   Mental Health Ireland are the employer and managing the recruitment for Gateway.  Please follow the application process explained in the advert which will mean applying to Mental Health Ireland, not Gateway.

Please be aware that the deadline for applications is Tuesday 9th May and interviews for shortlisted candidates will take place on the 16th or 17th May.

Please feel free to circulate this to anyone who may be interested and/or have the relevant experience. Someone with some administration/office management experience and a commitment to the values and ethos of Gateway including equality, anti-discrimination, collective action, participation, recovery and social justice would be a good fit.

Good luck to all/any applying.

Gateway's Creative Writing Booklet Launch

A Book Launch I Attended

Over the past, four years Gateways writing class has been trying to improve their writing skill.

As the previous tutor who passed away, with a new tutor Maria Jones the role was hard to fill.

Coming to the creative writing class is comfortable, because you can take things in your own stride.

You might be blocked because of poor mental health, by taking out a pen you could conquer pride.

Maria gives great encouragement of peoples prose and poetry with no pressure gives you a lift.

Usually when we start writing in class or at home we come to realisation there lies a special gift.

A lot of preparation went in to developing and organising our Gateway creative writing book.

 It was mainly some participants of the class that done editing a lot of time and effort it took.

On the 10th of March 2017 held in Rathmines library Gateways book launch I attended feeling proud.

There was a great introduction, speeches and emotions with an attendance of a very large crowd.

Each participant of the class, there read their prose and poetry from the book confidently and clear.

With thank you to the coordinator and lots refreshments and chat created a great atmosphere.

Well done to everybody involved in getting this creative writing class book launch on its way.

A book launch I attended happened because of the positive mental health organisation, Gateway.
