Transitional Employment Placements (TEP)

We offer:

  • Tailored solutions that address the employer’s recruitment needs for entry-level positions.
  • A powerful & achievable way of addressing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) 
  • Opportunities to make a genuinely positive impact on the lives of individuals and communities.
  • Access to our mental health information service for themselves and their employees.
  • Support with developing job descriptions that address real need and are likely to free up existing staff from entry-level tasks, potentially leading to increased productivity.
  • Dedicated placement management – 2 members of Mosaic’s staff will learn the job so that we – not the employer – are responsible for training our members in the post.
  • Training and supervision. We do not leave our member to do the job until we, the member and the employer is satisfied that the training has been completed and, thereafter, we maintain regular contact through support visits.
  • Guaranteed absence cover, either by a member already trained on the job or by a member of staff.
  • Swift action to address any problems. Though problems are rare, we can easily be contacted by phone or email.
  • Recruitment – after 6 to 9 months, we will support the member in post to progress towards independent employment and we will train a new member to replace them.
  • Profile – your company will be seen to be supporting people’s recovery in a powerful way at a time when mental health is high on the public’s agenda.
  • Social Media and PR – We will maximise exposure of our partnerships through Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin; also, through our website, our annual reports and special events, such as World Mental Health Day.

Our current employers

It is estimated that in any one year in the UK, 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem and that mental ill health costs UK businesses £26 billion each year. Employers that create supportive working environments and make appropriate adjustments for staff will reap the benefits. Raising awareness of wellbeing and promoting open discussion helps to overcome mental health stigma.

In its editorial, The Wall Street Journal described Clubhouse employment partnerships as, “A good deed and a good deal.”

A partnership with Mosaic Clubhouse is truly a mutually beneficial arrangement.

Our employment partners offer us:

  • An entry-level job, with which we can provide our members with access to paid employment and, ultimately, the opportunity to come off benefits and become fully contributing members of the community. 
  • Opportunities, over time, to develop sustainable supported employment positions.
 Our current employment partners are:
  • CNBC
  • Public Health England
  • Cambian Churchill
  • SHARP Team, South London & Maudsley NHS Trust
  • Lambeth Living Well Network Hub
  • Morley College

The TEP journey

  • Our Employment Coordinator and the prospective employer work up a job description that captures a real need (something that really needs doing in the organisation) and describes the skills that will be required to do this job well.
  • The Clubhouse work with a member to get them ready for the role and support them during the placement. The Clubhouse also sorts out any of the benefit impacts for the member and guarantees to any employer that the job will be done, either by the member or by Clubhouse staff. This way, the employer takes no risk of staff absence, sick pay or annual leave.
  • After 6 – 9 months, the member usually has grown so much in confidence, ambition and skills that they are able to move on and apply for a more permanent job or further formal training elsewhere. The TEP opportunity is then offered to another member of the Clubhouse.

An employers perspective

 Our Stories

Journey to full time employment

I never believed with the illness I suffer from that I would be able to hold down a job or have this sort of opportunity. With the help and support of Mosaic Clubhouse I started a journey that has been difficult, rewarding and altogether unexpected. Never underestimate the support and help that people are willing to give you.

Making the first steps

The staffs at my Transitional Employment Placement (TEP) are really happy with me and they said that I would be long with them! They say that I do a great job in the kitchen. For me a TEP is about giving people the opportunity to go out and explore different opportunities to find out their strengths. Having this TEP has given me the motivation to get out and explore my abilities. I wake up every morning looking for what needs doing.

I am making a progress

My journey at the clubhouse started in the Hospitality and Horticulture unit, but since joining I have felt more confident in myself (the confidence comes and goes), not just in a working environment but also social as well. I still do feel sometimes that it’s difficult to socialise with other people but I’m working on it but all in all I feel I’m making good progress.
