About the role

This is an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to gain valuable HR administration experience in a dynamic national charity, supporting the day to day work of the HR team. The role offers the opportunity to gain experience of administration, updating websites and databases, paying invoices and more.

The HR team sits within the Infrastructure department and is made up of the Head of HR & OD and eight members of staff, all of whom are available to ensure your volunteering opportunity is a mutually valued and pleasant one.

As HR Volunteer Team Assistant, you will support the work of the whole team, especially relating to ongoing administration, recruitment, keeping databases and files up to date etc. There will be scope to influence your tasks depending on interests and areas in which you want to gain experience. You will receive the necessary training to carry out this role.

We welcome interest from those individuals who have direct or indirect experience of a mental health problem, who will gain support and understanding, with the opportunity to build confidence, skills and experience from Mind.

The role is flexible and we are ideally looking for someone who can volunteer from our London office for up to 2 days (14 hours) per week. Although the post is unpaid, we can offer reimbursement of reasonable travel up to £15.00 per day and lunch expenses up to £5 per day.

Mind aims to ensure that the needs and interest of mental health services users, men, women, Black and Minority Ethnic communities, disabled people, lesbians, gay men and bisexuals and people of all ages are reflected in all its activities. The Volunteer is expected to contribute to this aim.
