Internal Communications Manager

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.

The communications and marketing team’s purpose is to lift Mind’s brand; tell our story in a planned, and audience driven way and deliver strategic, life changing communications.

Joining us as our Internal Communications Manager, you will:

• Play a key role in shaping the next stage of Mind’s organizational development, supporting and advising colleagues across Mind to plan and deliver top notch internal communications. You will own and lead on an internal communications strategy, working closely with HR and the organizational development plan. You’ll empower colleagues to put internal audiences first and think creatively about how to reach them, and frame messages and use creative design in order to achieve our strategic goals.

• You’ll manage day to day internal corporate communications, advising and supporting internal and external stakeholders including corporate partners to use our tools effectively. You will be responsible for managing the development of our internal communications channels. You will ensure that priority projects, particularly change management, are given adequate resource

• You will contribute to driving forward our ambitious plans to transform the function of communications and marketing for Mind, supporting colleagues to maximise internal channels to engage people with our work and empower them to use the brand effectively.

You will work across the organisation to ensure our mission, vision and brand values run through everything we do, empowering colleagues to communicate and share knowledge effectively to increase the impact of everything we do.

You will need to work closely with a wide range of stakeholders across the organisation including senior leadership and the staff forum and when required the local Mind network.

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)

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.
