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?

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.

Your role as Marketing Assistant is to support the Communications and Marketing team to deliver creative and impactful marketing and communications for the whole organisation that grows our brand profile and supports income generation.

Reporting to the Senior Marketing Officer, you will have responsibility for providing flexible support to the marketing unit, which currently includes marketing campaigns, retail marketing and communications and marketing in Wales. The team also leads on communications and marketing for corporate partnerships and a number of funded programmes.

With experience of working in a communications, marketing or digital environment, you will have excellent copywriting skills, both for online and offline channels, with an understanding of targeting audiences. You’ll have experience of using common IT packages, shared online drives and web content management systems, coupled with experience of carrying out general administrative duties, including maintaining systems, processes and handling queries.

A personal awareness and empathy of mental health problems and an understanding of the voluntary sector would be desirable, however is not essential.

Come and join the fight for mental health.

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 thereafter (or more, depending on the arrangements of your team)
