Network Investment Senior Officer Opportunities

We’re Mind, the mental health charity. We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect. We provide advice and support to empower anybody experiencing a mental health problem and we campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.

The Networks and Communities Department (N&C), has a crucially important role in enabling Mind to reach more people, increase our influence and effect long lasting change in all communities across England and Wales. Our primary vehicle for achieving this goal is through supporting and strengthening a federated network of over 120 local Mind organisations.

The role will work as part of a team to ensure that each fund is accessed, distributed, monitored and evaluated to a consistently high-standard and in line with Mind’s Network Investment Plan. You will be joining the team at a pivotal stage, as we roll out a number of new programmes, including the Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund, a programme that seeks to support the mental health sector across England and Wales to respond meaningfully to the impact that coronavirus is having on the communities they serve.

The Network Investment Senior Officer will be responsible for leading the delivery of key aspects of grant administration, including promotion, preliminary application screening and assessment. As well as supporting, monitoring and evaluating funded projects and ensuring grant procedures are maintained and funded activity is accurately recorded.

The post will develop a thorough understanding of the grants Mind is making and will work to support applicants, funded projects, external assessment personnel and assessment panel members to ensure Mind’s grant processes operate efficiently within a clear timetable.

The emphasis of the post will change with time, involving elements of advising applicants and assessing applications, through supporting and monitoring funded projects, to the eventual controlled winding-up of funded activity.
