About the role

Time to Change is a growing social movement run by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness. We’re working to change the way we all think and act about mental health problems. Since we started out in 2007 we’ve reached millions of people and have already seen a big improvement in attitudes and behaviour.

Communications work is vital to achieving our aims and we’re looking for an enthusiastic and organised Communications Assistant to help us end mental health stigma.

In this role you’ll be the first point of contact for public enquiries about Time to Change, dealing with these in a timely and sensitive way. You'll need to be flexible, proactive and able to work closely with other members of the team, staff across the wider Time to Change programme, Mind and Rethink Mental Illness as well as external stakeholders.

You'll also support the communications and PR team to produce a wide range of materials for internal and external audiences, to engage our supporters and stakeholders and raise the profile of Time to Change. In addition, you’ll manage our online asset library and provide guidance to staff and external partners on the use of the Time to Change brand and assets.  

You’ll report to the Senior Communications Officer and will have the opportunity to get involved in a range of other communications work on a project-by-project basis.


Closing date: Tuesday 26 February 2019
