"Ready to work but don't know how to go about it"

About: South London And Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust

(as the patient),

I've been doing User Involvement for four years and I feel I'm ready to look for long term employment (in the mental health service) but I haven't a clue how to garner a realistic chance of getting such work! I am in my 40s with a basic standard of academic qualifications.
