Head of Mental Health at Work Programme

About the role

We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect. We provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.

We have big goals over the next few years. We’re going to be fighting for mental health in a way we never have before. Together we’ll be working to make sure everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets the support and respect they deserve.

Will you join us?

This is an exciting opportunity to join Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing team within the Fundraising directorate. We play a key role in achieving Mind’s mission of better mental health for all: we positively influence working policies, practices and culture to generate income to fund Mind’s charitable activities and improve people’s working lives.

We also work in collaboration to create wider change including supporting the Thriving at Work Leadership Council comprising of business leaders from a range of sectors. Phase two of the programme, funded by the Leadership Council and to commence Spring 2022, seeks to demystify mental health in the workplace through support for employers to navigate information and resources, understand best practice approaches and gain confidence in how to deliver workplace interventions.

The purpose of this job is to lead on the development and implementation of all aspects of the Mental Health at Work programme, working closely with a range of key stakeholders to ensure its success.

We are looking for someone who has a passion for improving the working lives of people through collaboration, sharing best practice and building the evidence base.

You will have experience of leading on and managing programmes or campaigns to drive change. You will have extensive knowledge and understanding of the workplace mental health landscape and key issues. You will be someone who has excellent communication skills and a proven ability to establish personal credibility with key senior stakeholders as well as excellent networking and influencing skills to build and maintain relationships both internally and externally.

Closing date: 30 January 2022

This position will initially, in line with current and potentially future guidance, be based from home. Post lockdown this role will retain some flexibility but post holders will be expected to be in the office a minimum of two days per week thereafter (or more, depending on the arrangements of your team)

Equality & Diversity

We value the power of diversity. We embrace the different perspectives that each of us bring. We are creating an inclusive working environment where everyone is appreciated for being authentic and bringing their whole selves to work regardless of race, gender, age, religion, identity and experience.

We are committed to becoming truly anti-racist in everything we do and ensuring that all our employees are treated fairly and equitably at work and promoting equity in physical and mental health for all.
