Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind is a highly regarded local charity, helping people to be mentally healthy and working together with those experiencing mental health problems and dementia to improve their quality of life. With an annual turnover of £4M, over 150 staff and 260 volunteers, we are one of the largest charities in the Mind network.
We are seeking a skilled manager to lead the implementation and delivery of a new suicide bereavement support service across the six Boroughs of South East London. The suicide bereavement service will support people through some of the most difficult experiences of their lives, and in doing so has the potential to be truly life-changing.
The service is a collaboration between the three local Minds in the area and South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. As manager, you will be responsible for staff employed across these organisations and for nurturing the development of a creative, effective partnership between them.
With experience working with people with mental health problems or their support network and leading a team, you will need to demonstrate that you have a person-centred approach, communicate effectively and can manage partnership delivery.
We recognise the importance and benefits of having a diverse and inclusive work force, and would therefore particularly welcome applications from the following, currently under-represented, groups:
• People from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds
• Disabled people
• People with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities
BLG Mind is committed to meeting the reasonable adjustments of disabled people.
BLG Mind always welcomes applications from people with lived experience of mental health problems.
Staff benefits include a matched contribution pension scheme, 25 days' holiday (rising with service), quality supervision and training opportunities. See our website for more reasons to work for Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind.
Successful applicants will be expected to undergo an Enhanced level Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
